SOMEBODY PINCH ME !

The painting is done, and I am moving in all my stuff. When I first decided to move my room back upstairs, I was worried I might be giving up some space.  More space usually means more clutter---at least in a sewing room. Not to worry, I managed to fit in what I think I'll need.
I moved in a single bed for when we have a guest.  It's also a great place to store quilts.
The wall by the bed will be my design wall.

Come on in : )




On the bed: Sunkissed       (now I can literally sew til I drop)



At the end of the bed is a shelf where I have all my little bolts. I'm so glad it fit there perfectly.
The bottom shelf will hold books. The closet will hide all the not so pretty things like batting and notions.





I knew I wanted the cubby holes brought up, but what about the cupboards that were full of backings and other stuff? Hubby took a few measurements and decided they would just fit, stacked on top of each other. At first I wasn't sure, but I love it. Just look at all that storage!


It won't always look this tidy, but I am hoping to have a place for everything and control myself as far as "collecting" goes. Currently, I'm going through fabrics and deciding what to keep and what to donate.




I couldn't leave my "shabby chic" bulletin board downstairs, so I stuck it on the door.


I love my new space. After hubby had put the last screw in the cupboards he said, "there you go dear--load 'em up"

Oh I WILL  : )

Its a lovely room Carla! And so much storage:-)
I'd love to see what it all looks like when you have everything put in its place. I always find it so interesting to see all the nice personal and cute things put on walls and shelves that inspire quilters:-)
I guess that makes me a lurker *lol*

Oh to have a sewing room. My stuff is stored in the basement, and gets moved all around. I'm planning on going thru most of it in the next few weeks and organizing it.

See the bead in the sewing room is a good plan. Sew, Sleep, Sew, Sleep. Wait were missing the stove you better put one of those in too.
