    Reorganized My Sewing Room

    Here are a few before and after pics. of my sewing room. My boss made me a large ironing board top but it was just to unstable on my ironing board so I went to Big Lots and bought (2) 20.00 bookcases and wa-la. I now have my fabric storage and ironing board compressed into one space. It's also nice now not having the ironing board in the way all of the time. I then removed all the thread off of my pegboard and put it all in the organizer drawers with wheels. Much more convenient when I am doing my embroidering and I don't have to move my cutting table to get to it. I also got a new laptop so now I don't have to be downstairs to use the computer. This meant bring up my printer and all the things that go with the computer. So I put the metal shelving on the table top and I still have plenty of room to do what I have to do on the table. If you notice, you will also see that the top half of the metal shelving is underneath my cutting table for more storage. It was just the right height to fit under. I also have lots of storage under the sewing tables. We sure do accumulate a lot of STUFF don't we? Well, this is my little piece of paradise. Hope you enjoy looking.
    Have a great day.
    PS Yes, my room does get a little messy when I am in the throws of a project, but, it is always this organized and I don't apologize

    What a beautiful, cheerful sewing area! I especially love the ironing station because it's big enough for pressing large items, and you don't have to put it up and down. Love the pegboard, too!
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....

    You have such a spacious sew room. I like how you have your rulers and scissors on the peg board. Would love to see the quilt in progress.

    Your sewing room is wonderful. Is it a panel in the center of the front or did you applique it? I haven't seen one like that anywhere. I am sure your GS will love it.

    This was a panel. It was so out of whack I had to starch the heck out of it to stretch it into the correct shape.

    Oh I wish I had your space -- and oh how I wish what I have was better organized (but that would mean less stuff LOL).

    Great job -- your room looks really nice.

    You're so organized. Lovely room.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Love the ironing board.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I love your organization. Hope you take it as a compliment if I use some of your ideas. I truly love anything to do with organization. I search all mags to find any type of organization. Not as bad as my daughter, tho, she actually labels every shelf etc in the house so things get put back where they belong. LOL
