    I turned my dining room into my main sewing area. My hubby, bless his heart, took some old kitchen cabinets (donated by my friends who both had their kitchens remodeled) and made the sewing counters. He made a recessed area to drop my machine into and then the clear extension table slides right in (he's so clever).

    Then I have a smaller room off the dining room that was my nail room (I did nails out of my house) and set up my cutting table and we just put the shelving unit in to hold my dwindling stash. (I used a lot of my stash in my sisters king sized quilt "Wish Upon A Star".

    I am very lucky, I know, to have a very supportive husband.

    I''m green with envy. It looks awesome. I use our dining room, but my hubby won't let me "convert" it...I sew on our really nice wood dining table...

    Glad you have such a lovely sewing area...every woman/man/sewer/quilter deserves one!!

    I've said it before andwill say it again- I am so jealous! I don't have a special sewing room, and won't for quite a few more years. I have to wait for my stepkids to grow up, but then I am taking over a bedroom upstairs!

    My husband was going to take the shelving unit to the dump. TO THE DUMP! Can you believe that? I latched on quick.

    My hubby is definitely a keeper. Been married 26 years.

    Your room looks great and it doesn't look like a converted DR. It looks like a well organized sewing room.

    Very nice - I was really struggling to figure out the whole "nail" room thing - I was picturing hamer and nails- then my brain clicked on - finger nails - now it makes sense.

    What a wonderful sewing corner. I sew in my dining room and am taking inspiration from you. Thanks.

    Very nice. We have a living room and a family room. I want nothing more than to use the living room - as we do not use it except for the boys playing their video games - and make it my sewing room. My husband likens it to his setting up a wood shop in the dining room. I just don't get it - - - so I guess I'll be relegated to one of the empty bedrooms upstairs - to sew all by my lonesome self. I'd MUCH rather be downstairs with everyone else, but ... at least he doesnt' mind a whole bedroom for me and my stuff!! :)

    It only looks organized 'cause I just got the shelving unit put in and had to clean and reorganize. Give it a day or 2. It won't look like that for long. LOL.
