    I'm so excited. I went to an estate sale today and came home with this...

    After so many links and talks about sewing room, I think it's about I get my own. I do have one room that we have always kept it as a guess room, however we dont' have many guest after we've relocate to Virginia. So, I'm converting it to my sewing room.

    What do you all think of this? I know it's not sewing related but it'll look nice in it.




    44 inches long, 14 inches width, and 30 inchec height.

    I like it. I may have space in my new room for a chair. I hope so.

    I think it needs a throw over it and a stack of quilting magazines to pour over nearby. You can take a break and relax in your sewing room. Or have a place for family to visit you as you sew.

    I love it!

    Wow -- that's really pretty!! And yes, a pink and green quilt would be just ideal to lay over the back of it!!

    If I only had one extra bedroom, it would be my sewing room and not a guest bedroom. After all, I would use it way more than any one else! And if guests come, can you say "H-O-T-E-L"? :roll: :roll:

    Thanks! At the rate that my DH is working, I'm not sure when I'll be able to move into the room.

    He has way too many projects around the house inside and outside!!!

    That is an absolutely great piece to have in your sewing room! Wish I had a room...........but I will in 2 months!!!!! It'd be kind of fun to have a throw with 1900's reproduction fabrics!
