Sewing Space---Finished!

It's Finished! At last! Yeaaah!  I started packing out stuff from the room(s) late February in preparation for the demolition of the wall between the room on March 6th.  The contractor was wonderful, and everything went well until we hit a snag with delivery of the new sewing furniture.  For three weeks the furniture lingered in a warehouse, or on a truck, back to the company dock, back on a truck and finally last week it arrived…..

This delivery crew did a great job. 

The Before (1995 to 2014) with some changes (accumulation) over the years. 






The remodeled Sewing Space!
(16' x 13')

Please come in!
Let's Sew!
Cut or press. The cutting table rolls out, and has an extension leaf on the back for larger projects.
The Design wall moved West!

Cubbie storage, files and some stuff I just couldn't part with….

More fabric storage cubbies 
My favorite is this corner table. 


Polly, the long arm remains where she's happiest!---in the living room.



Please come back soon…….
Life is good!

Edit: Questions & Answers.  Yes, originally the sewing room was two small bedrooms. We took down the dividing wall and removed one doorway and closet framing removed. The room now measures 16 x 13 feet. The paint is Benjamin Moore's "Regal" brand. The color is "Rain Drops" with white trim. The flooring is Laminate, not hardwood. The sewing furniture is by Koala. The Ironing Table was built by my husband from a garage sale find. The cubbies are from the Recollection series at Michaels crafts, and also some smaller cubbies from Target.  The blinds are from American Blinds and Wallpaper, an internet company. Ordered online. I don't have a TV in the sewing room as I listen to music or Audio books while sewing.  Design wall is made from two 6 x 4 pieces of foam core type material  from Home Depot covered with Warm and Natural batting rolled and stapled to the back and attached to the wall.  The iron is a Panasonic.  The wall mounted slotted  ruler holder above the cutting storage cabinet is by Clydes Workshop on Etsy.

I'm so excited for you and your new space! That furniture is fabulous too. The corner unit absolutely makes the room. I am jealous of your hardwood floors. My room has carpet and sometimes the chair is hard to roll. You've used your space in such a smart way and I'm totally loving what you've done and the colors you've chosen!

My favorite change is no more carpet, love the wood floors. Wish my space could be as uncluttered as yours (been trying to keep cleaned up for years).
