Thread: My sewing space

    Last fall my husband and 2 sons renovated an old shed in our backyard ....just for me. The room is 16' x 26' with 2 lofts (for storage) on either side of room. I painted the walls a shade lighter than daffadils and the trim white. The space got totally rewired, insulated, new floor, new lights, etc. Believe it or not, almost all of the furniture got dragged out of the house or barn (leftovers from the kids rooms, parents, etc.). The TV (good only for movies, not hooked up to cable) is there because my husband got a plasma. I did buy a dropped leaf table from a resale shop (opens 5'x5'). I reupholster furniture as a hobby, crochet afghans (frenzied sometimes) and now quilt.
    I love fabrics. Most fabric I buy on ebay (esp upholstery fabrics), some at shops.

    I was spread out over 3 rooms upstairs and reupholstered furniture in the living room. Now my upstairs has lovely guest rooms again and I reclaimed my living room.

    I love this space...so peaceful, so inviting, etc.
    I'm so grateful that my men did this for me, so that I could have my own wonderful retreat.

    I have lots of pics.

    What a knock out area...I am so envious.
    What are the dates for the retreat?
    You are going to have such fun in that space.

    Well if I can't have your room, I'll take your stash!

    Very nice "woman cave" for sewing and retreating in. Happy for you too. Looks to me like the only think lacking is a few WIPs and the mess they make. :) Hope you enjoy your new space.

    What a lovely place! You have done a great job and I think your skeins of yarn are displayed so beautiful. It was a lot of work-I'm sure - but now to enjoy! Thanks for sharing.

    Congradulations on your new space! I enjoyed your pictures. My DH is fixing me a room in the basement but it will not be ready for six months. I am collecting ideas. I love your lofts!!

    Just gotta say, "That is about the best little slice of heaven I've ever seen." You have everything! If Barbie was a quilter, her studio would look like yours.

    How special to have a room for yourself. You did a beautiful job making it "your" space. I am green with envy.
