I love that so much of it is white, sort of a clean palette to start your next project. Love the organized room. Really a great space to create. Lucky you.

You are so fortunate to have your very own sewing room! I just have a small question - why do you have the machines facing the wall and not under the window? I am sure you have a good reason, but I was just wondering......... I have a problem with good lighting in my sewing spot (part of my bedroom) so to me that is important. Congratulations on the fine job your husband did. Lucky lady!

A few weeks ago I posted that he had started...we went to Ikea to get some ideas and realised that they had most of the things I wanted.
He gutted the room, carpet went, bench etc and walls were stripped, new electric points added.....and the following is the result....I am so delighted. It is a lovely bright room, masses of storage for my fabric in the cupboards and baskets.
We have put in a bed settee in so that it can still be used for friends. (Ok I still am trying to decide on the cushion covers !) The work surface is not secured so the furniture can be moved to make it look more like a bedroom if needed and the bulkhead of the stairs has been made into a storage box with space for cutting on the top.....I feel so happy

Love your room. I too went to IKEA and got all my shelving, a table attachment and some inserts for the shelves. I also took 2 cube shelving units, attached them back to back, put them on a 4x4 frame I made with casters and made a rolling cutting table. The 4x4 frame and casters raised it to counter height - easier on the back to cut at that height. And the cube units are open (no back) - putting them back to back makes a nice long shelve area to store bolts, batting, long rulers etc. Love my room, too.

Great room! Now if it was mine I would start a project and pull out everything and have a mess first thing :roll: It looks so neat and clean!
