One of the great things about renovating is finding new uses for old things! I’ve been throwing out the living room items because black, black, black and I don’t mix. I want wood! I still love my old dining set and love the scratches and marks that my sons have embedded into it, but it is ratty looking so it was replaced…but it looks great in my sewing room!
Since the legs would not fit down over the sides of the four cabinets (old bedroom set, two sets of drawers and 2 sets of cabinets, 2 against two) we took the legs off and voila, a nice high, optimum height table that I can walk around! Just perfect. We are going to take the long white slab off on the far side so that I can put my cutting mats, scissors and other small items under the table. As we continue with the renovations, wood flooring will be put down here! :)…happy dancing here. I am going to change the handles on these cabinets and they will probably be repainted etc….And I arranged my sewing machine table for MAJOR sewing…right in the middle of the room:
I have space to walk around…to the right is my desk and stuff for school. I have good lighting and space. I’m going to have my husband cut a piece of plywood and sand & varnish it so that I can clamp it between the sewing table and sewing machine table for bigger quilting projects….Happy girl :)….the whole house is upside down but I can use my room!!!
My goal is to have as less clutter as possible on the sewing table….I recuperated that beautiful white bookshelf too….baskets, baskets, baskets. The bookshelf on the right will be going because I want to get cabinets with doors for that space, although I really like to SEE my stuff…something with the creativity…how to be visually appealing without the cluttered look…..HELP ME!
Well, later….back to work!
