Another Room Redo: Sewing Station in Our Room

Okay, I am almost done with my show and tell about how I spent my weekend reorganizing rooms.  The past couple of months, our house was a mess ... due to repair work being done on the ceiling and walls in the living/dining room and then the two weeks of recovery from my oral surgery.  I had plenty of time to plan out the bones of what I wanted to accomplish and finally got 'er done.

Basically, I needed to put like things alike into one spot.  The desk in our bedroom, below, needed to go into our home office.  The sewing table and sewing storage needed to go into our bedroom.  The theory is that if I have enough light and everything is at my fingertips, then I will be more apt to sit down and sew.

This picture looks like it was taken from my cell phone, but it wasn't.  This is one reason why I am afraid that my camera is wearing out on certain settings.  Anyway, this is the "before":

It is so pretty!  I hung up the quilt that my Great Grandma Sallie Johnson made as a wedding gift for my Grandpa Delmar and Grandma Agnes 76 years ago.

Here is the sewing area.  I am very excited about how this room turned out.  I like the pink.

The dry erase board has some of my projects written on it.  I need to finish filling it out and get to work, but now I think it will be easier to do than when things were a mess.

So, now there is light, t.v. and a view.  It doesn't get much better than that for a bit of sewing and crafting.  Please either scroll down to the next post or "CLICK HERE" to see how the office turned out.  I just need to finish cleaning up and tweaking the Mom Cave (which is where that desk with the red baskets came from).  I even did a ton of laundry yesterday too, though it isn't folded yet. 

It feels good to be feeling good, that is all that I can say. 

Hope that you are all having a great week so far, 

Kathy M.

Oh, another great room. I love your to do list. I need one of those for every day, not just in my craft room.

How does Cary feel about a sewing station in the bedroom? Doesn’t he worry that you’ll leap up and finish a little project in the middle of the night? :)
