Pictures of the Sewing Room . . . As Promised

I am so stinking excited to show these pictures.  My Mother-In-Law and I unpacked the sewing room on Thursday  My Mother started painting it on Friday, and I finished it up yesterday.  Can I just say that I LOVE IT!!!!!  Here it is, my new sewing room!!

This is Work Central.  The previous owners were kind enough to ask if I wanted this huge corner desk and I quickly said yes.  Isn't it just perfect.  So much space for pinning and so forth.  And storage drawers galore.  This is a vast, vast, upgrade from my last sewing desk.  And I just love the wood floors.  I can actually baste my quilts in the same room I sew them!!!  Now all I need is a rolley chair to spin around the room in.


Okay, So I thought I had a large stash, now I realize I just had a small storage space for that stash.  I told my husband that there is plenty of room to expand the stash now.  And even enough shelves to color code it.  I want my stash to look just like the Yankee Candle Store.  I am so excited!!


And on the other side of the room, oh yes, a mini kitchen.  This room was used as a lab by the previous owners.  It will now be perfect for popping up popcorn, or making hot chocolate.  Just a fun little touch to keep the kiddos happy while I don't have to stop sewing.  Oh, and did I mention, More Storage!!!


Here is where I envision a special little something.  I have mentioned to my wonderful Father-In-Law, who is such an amazing craftsman, about building me a cutting table that I have my mat built in to.  I would have it on wheels so I can just roll it out into the middle of the room and work all the way around it.  Ahhh!!!  Heaven to not have to go up to the dining room table anymore :)


And last, an ironing station.  I scoped out a new ironing board while shopping the other day and put it on my birthday wish list. (Here is hoping, it was $40, pricey for an ironing board but it is sweet!!) Oh and yes, this room happens to be right off my family room.  Perfect!!!  And the last thing I want to mention that I absolutely love about this sewing room is the color.  Don't you just love the purple!!!  Thanks Mom for picking it out.  Now I just need to make some adorable little wall quilts to match.  Maybe I will have to join the next doll quilt swap.  Any ideas as to when that is happening???


So that is the new sewing room!!!  I just can't wait to get down there and start busting out some projects.  I can't believe I haven't sewn for like 2 weeks.  Killer!!!  Oh, and check back tomorrow where I will reveal something that has been in the works for a little bit and I am SOOOOOOOO very excited about it.  I will give you  a hint, it is in the 3rd picture :)
Pin It!

  3. I am so jealous of your sewing room! My crafting room has been my dining room, and I just packed everything away so we could actually use the dining room table--it makes me very sad :( Can't wait till we move to a house with room for a craft room!

  14. I love it! How very lucky to have all that space. You should put a comfy chair or loveseat in there so your quilting buddies can come hang out. Eat popcorn and drink hot chocolate. I see enough space for a long folding table and lots of laughter and late night sewing with good friends.

  17. I love your huge sewing room. I'm so jealous. My "sewing room" is a tiny veranda next to my bed room. I live in an apartment so there's no space for anything else. Anyway, congratulations on your new and gorgeous sewing room.

  19. Love your new sewing space. If you don't get your birthday present, you may be able to talk someone into making a top for your current ironing board. My hubby took a piece of 1/4" masonite and put 1"x2" around the edge, then other pieces to snug up to the board. Then I got to cover it with batting, etc. It rectangular and works great over my old ironing board.

  27. Couple things - Love the purple, love the whole room. Ditch the clock; do you really need to know what time it is in the sewing room? :) You do need some more stash!

  29. Wow- what a great space and I love the color. May I ask what kind of lab these people had in their house?? Just wondering.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow, congrats to you! Be sure you leave lots of that wall space to use as a design wall! And the kitchen area will make it a wonderful place to work with fabric dyes! I'm truly envious!

  34. You are so fortunate to have this amazing space to do what you love! I have settled for a corner in my big kitchen but it works for now. As for stashing, that is some uncharted territory for me and am a bit afraid of venturing into but who knows what could happen. Sewing is such a ride, isn't it?
