After my 21-year-old daughter moved out last November, we had an extra room in the house - yippee! After months of considering what to do with it, we've decided it will be a sewing/guest/office/exercise room (still not sure what to call it). I painted over the bubblegum pink walls with a creamy white, and I love how it looks. Last week we started moving things in. I'm not near done with it, but this is what I've got so far.
My husband took the doors off the closet and that gave us a lot more room. On the right side, I'll store my fabrics, projects and supplies. See those cardboard mailing boxes on the top shelf of the closet? They hold my works-in-progress. They're about 9"x12"x2", are the perfect size, and stack nicely. The top sliding baskets hold misc. scraps, and the bottom baskets hold my notions. I have more to put in there, but the basics are there. My flannel board will go up on the wall next to my machine. The dresser will hold my rotary-cutting mat and iron.
The left side of the closet holds my son's computer (he's 13). My husband's desk will go on the opposite side of the room next to the treadmill. It will be nice to have them in there while I'm sewing. Or using the treadmill. We'll see. :)
We still have to bring in my tall cabinet with fold-down table, TV and ironing board. And maybe hang some curtains. I'm looking forward to giving it some vintage personality, maybe with reds and blues.
