I am lucky enough to have a sewing room. Although it always had a sewing machine in it, it was at different times a play room for the kids, a craft room (mostly for my very crafty daughter), a storage room for kids home from college in the summers and now my sewing room. The kids are married and in their own homes and this is my room! This is the only room in the house we have never done anything to and we have lived here for almost 27 years. Here's what it looked like a couple of weekends ago.
It's not usually this messy but I had emptied everything out of the closet.
This closet had one tiny door but really, it's a good sized closet. For 27 years I have wanted better access to this closet and finally hubby got around to opening it up.
He added shelves and opened it up so I can get to my supplies without having to empty the closet everytime. Sweet! I have had a serious stash manicure in the past year by using a lot of the stash and sorting and getting rid of a lot, which I did in November. All the fabric I have left is what is in those two white towers which are working perfectly for me. I love them.
I am using some new storage items, mostly bought at Home Goods and some vintage, like the cute tin above.
I love being able to see it all.
The aqua cabinet used to be my Dad's tool chest. It was really dirty when I got it but I cleaned it up and gave it a coat of paint. Great storage! So since these pictures were taken we have painted the walls, and installed a new floor. Still have some trim to paint and hopefully I'll be able to sew by this weekend. Tomorrow I have off from work since there's a big snowstorm coming. The world must be ending because they never close the college where I work but they have already decided to close so I am looking forward to the snow day. Perhaps I'll get this room back in shape. I love snow days.
