New Sewing Room

THE BEFORE PHOTOS:


I did it! I moved my sewing room from our spare bedroom to the sun room this past Saturday.

There is much less floor space in the sun room and it's difficult to place furniture because of all the windows. But being downstairs and right off of the living room does encourage more sewing. It's easy to 'drop by' the sun room.

I had an old kitchen table as a desk before. Lots of table top space, yes, but it took up too much floor space. So I moved my current sewing table and grabbed it's twin from my husband's office (he has inherited the old kitchen table). I have my old drafting table from art school set up as a cutting table. And I was able to fit a small book case underneath it...it just made it too.



I originally forgot that I had to include an ironing board in there as well. But it also just made it in. There is enough room for me to turn around in here and not much more.

I was able to get all of my notions into that little wooden box on the floor. And some of my fabric is on the book case but most of it is still upstairs. A problem for another day.

I forgot to take a picture of the other side of the room but it is the same as it was. I did throw a blanket over that old green chair though.

Now I just need to make some pretty things for my one blank wall.

It's going to be great and you'll get so much more sewing done if you're in the hub of the house.

Terrific, now you will feel a part of the action. And easy accessibility is the key when you have that light bulb moment! Congrats, it looks great!

What a great room. You may not have a lot of space, but it looks like you've great use of it. In our old place my sewing room was right off the kitchen, now it's upstairs and I miss having it so close to the action.

I love all the natural light in your sun room, what a great companion for sewing and creating. I hoping to score some sunny spot in our new home if we ever find one. *crossfingers*

A little while ago, i'd have been very jealous of your sewing room. I'm going to have one of my own in a few months so I'm very excited and happy to see how others have set them up. Great light in there.

How lovely. And you sew right in front of the window. I do too!
