    I confiscated DD's bedroom when she went off to college, and now 7 years later, it's time for a re-do! DD is now graduated, married for 4 years and just had a baby girl, so I don't think she's coming back home, LOL. We hauled everything out, repainted a buttery yellow color, pulled the horrendous carpet and installed new laminate flooring. I just moved my cabinet and machine back in today! I am still considering possibilities for configuring the rest of the room, but I pretty much know how I want. Just have to find it in the right dimensions. This is a small room 12 X 12, so I have to make every inch count! Tomorrow I shop for shelving and a new flat screen TV. I hope to be back in the saddle and sewing again by the end of the week.

    My main workstation. To the left will be pegboard and behind me a design wall.

    A nice size closet for the stash. Also shows the wall color. A creamy yellow.

    It's lovely, but if I were you, I would evict that snake before you try any quilting in there! LOL

    LOL, Lacelady! The "snake" is the hose to the central vac. I hate carrying that hose all over the house!

    Very nice. Be sure to put in some holders so that you can put some on display on the walls.

    It is nice you can design your own room, yes more pics would be lovely, without the snake too. I have one of those I keep in the closet, it is a lot to drag around. Especially up and down the stairs :wink:

    Is that a Koala table? I agree, call pest control for that huge snake, lol.

    Jacque, I don't recall what brand the table is, but I love it! I bought it when I bought the machine. It doubles as a cutting table when the machine is recessed and the extension on my left is perfect for a pressing pad for blocks as they come off the machine.

    I like your room already... and a word from the wise... LESS is more! I had a beautiful room this time last year and then I decided I could do my scrapbooking AND painting in there too. Now the room is STUFFED! I hate it.

    At our school we had a motto for staff meetings. KISS! Keep It Short & Simple.
    I should have kept my room simple!
