Where I “create”.

I have been working on this sewing/craft room redo for way too long now.  The holidays made me stop and turn it into a Christmas package wrapping center and now I am finally semi-finished so thought I’d share.

I had a table where I kept my sewing machine and serger and a separate desk for my embroidery machine.  Sold the desk on craigslist, bought an enamel-top table at a garage sale, and put it in the corner for the embroidery machine.  I added a skirt around them so I could hide store stuff underneath.  I left the end open and have a roll out cart where I keep my Cricut machine.

I made the covers for the two machines out of oil cloth.   (My plan was to make one for the embroidery machine too, but I decided the one that came with it looked pretty good!)

I made the valance, step stool and lampshade out of the cute sewing-themed fabric I found at Hobby Lobby.  Also made some little pouches that are hanging on the IKEA rod behind the machines.

I already had the red dresser in there and added a bookcase to the top for all of my ribbon and other scrapbooking supplies.

This project encouraged me to get rid of a lot of fabric that was never going to be used and I reorganized the two closets in the room.

Now, I really want to paint the room, but that will just have to wait until I get busy with some other projects I have in mind.  I have two cute tall chairs to recover that can be used at the gate leg work table.
