My NEW Sewing Room is Complete!

I am super happy and excited to show off my new sewing room. Many thanks to my wonderful husband and all the hard work he put into making my vision come true.

I'll start off with my favorite new piece of furniture - new cutting table:

Isn't it beautiful? Plenty of work surface - big enough for bolt fabric cutting and much more. There's also 3 huge drawers and 2 big shelves. Practical, beautiful and it is all mine to use :).  This is also an IKEA piece - it is from their kitchen department - intended for a kitchen island, but I think it makes a wonderful cutting/craft table.

The sewing room is now HARD WOOD! YES!!!! No more dingy carpeting. This laminate 'hardwood' is also from IKEA. Feels fabulous and very easy to clean. Love it!

2595 compare with 2441
Before and after flooring - from old carpeting to beautiful floors.

I also painted one of the walls a gray-blue color - a pop of color - makes me smile just looking at it :)

I couldn't get a picture of the whole sewing table area, but this is a pretty good picture of the organized and clutter free sewing table and shelf:

Having all those drawers and shelves on the new cutting table REALLY help clear up the sewing area. YEH!!!

Here's a glimpse of the fabric closet. I didn't have time to organize and arrange all my fabrics yet - so I'll update on another post when that is done.

Here's to many many hours of quilt making and creativity!

I like your sewing table. Do you recall the brand?
Have fun using your freshly redesigned sewing room. It stimulates the old grey cells when in an organized space. Nice job!

Jennifer said...

I just finished my studio makeover too. Your new room is beautiful! Here's to many happy sewing hours!!

Definitely happy sewing to you! A space like that...wow! I love the color that you chose and what a clever idea to get a kitchen island as a cutting table. That's where I do ALL of my cutting (but in my actual kitchen...not lucky enough to have a separate space)! Awesome room!

I am a bit jealous! It is so spacious and clean! And the kitchen island as a cutting table is such a great idea! I love gray for the walls too, a good neutral that I think is calming and clearing...perfect for inspiration!

It's so nice to be able to have a sewing room just for doing that. Walk away and leave your mess for the next day. I love having mine. Yours is so nice and organized too.

It's beautiful! I have eyed that same kitchen island at Ikea for similar purposes. Now, if I could just get my own room!
