    This is the the shop I have in my back yard that I was using for storage and decided to remodel it so I can use it for my quilting habit. Since I collect machines and restore them and I have amassed a lot of memorabilia automotive and sewing and machines so I am adding on a 2 story addition that will be around 2200sqft total. I have the floor tile for the shop but I am waiting till I start the addition and start moving some things around to lay it.

    But here are a few photos of what I am working in......

    Here is a couple more, the wall unit is not fully assembled yet I have a section that sits on top of the one that is there now alongside the ironing board and another section will be on the wall next to it. I built everything in my shop including the wall unit, benches, thread rack, curtains and the wall art that I framed. Also this is only a few of the machines I have earmarked for use in my shop. There are several more to chose from.

    Awesome shop. I used to have shop in my back yard years ago and did all kinds of sewing and crafting in it til I moved to town. Now my carport has been enclosed and converted in to a sewing room. Love it too.

    I need to finish the wall unit up, I ran out of clear when I was building them so I need to run to the paint shop and pick up some more. I use automotive clear for finishing furniture and it always comes out looking like you can swim in it. But since I paint a lot of high end show cars and bikes I always have it on hand.

    The machines that are in the shelves next to my "Universal" were both basket cases. The Singer 27 was done in a Godzilla finish and I did the Blackside finish on the nickle plated parts. The Singer 24 was locked up and rusted solid but it runs like a champ now. I have a 185J that I am working on now that will be treadled and I am shooting it a cream color with a gold pearl mid coat with the gold Singer decals on the arm.

    I love the space you have in your work area! The machines you've shown us are just amazing. It's hard to believe people just get rid of them.

    I love everything about this shop...everything, but there is a little, tiny machine on a shelf, that would be perfect for a little mouse like me???
    What talent and creativity, and such a knack for color and what goes together!
    As you build on, show us more :D
