    Sewing room redo

    My son spent the last two days redoing my sewing room. Started by taking my commercial Singer to the shed. Too large for my small room--especially since I bought my Janome 7700. Bought two tables at IKEA for the sewing machine. One he put castors on to raise it for cutting. the other he cut a hole in the top to fit my 7700 and a shelf below to put the 7700 on in order to recess it. Moved the computer equipment to the wall the Singer 191 had been on. And now, I have the world's best sewing room--for me.

    Nice room. Now you are ready to get started. I love the picture with the clothes hanging on the line.

    He did a good job!

    Is it OK to say you have one handsome son?

    I like the idea of castors on a table - you can pull it out into your room to work from all sides if needed, mostly when cutting out garments. Think Ill swing on over to Ikea...

    Looks like artistic talent runs in the family. What a good son. Your room is wonderful and your son did a great job. Your Dad's paintings are very nice.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I see hubby using a jig saw. My hubby also owns a hand held battery operated skill saw. He uses it constantly. May a xmas gift for your hubby. Lowes have them at Christmas along with a battery operated drill. Best 2 pieces her ever bought. He has 45 years of building experience. Both go for about $129.00. DeWalt is the brand.
