All this time I have longed for my very own sewing/craft room. I'm certainly not complaining, because most of the time I've been fortunate to have a room with my sewing machine set up and ready to sew, but the spare bedroom it was in has always been shared with lots of other stuff- a kind of "catch-all" room; things that we didn't have space in the closet for and didn't want to throw away found their way into this room, at one point even a huge treadmill and stereo with CD collection were crammed in there as well.
A couple of months ago Hubby told me he would build some wall cabinets for me and help me paint, and my new sewing room would be ready just in time for my birthday. (Yep, I think I'll keep him. *swoon*)
So, after some planning and several trips to the local Goodwill with old clothes and what-nots, the room was cleaned out. The walls were painted and the cabinets started going up....
And now my dream has come true.
Here are the before and after pictures~
The "before" was a mess of this and that with no place to put anything,
but now I have a place for my computer and large work space for my embroidery machine.
(Plus a bed for Lily underneath the table.)
This is where I do most of my sewing~ now I have room for an ironing board close by in case I'm working on a project that requires frequent pressing.
Instead of a cluttered computer area,
now I have a huge cutting table with wheels that I can move around the room.
And I'm most grateful for the gorgeous cabinets Hubby made for me...
which hide all my clutter behind closed doors. *squeal*
And the first project out of my new room?
A quilted table runner for a dear friend, just in time for Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by to see the makeover! :)
