Here's the finished room! I've been looking forward to this for several months now and I can't believe it's finally complete.
My sewing table has been painted and moved into my sewing room. The side table against the wall is the Go-Cart desk and accompanying filing cabinet from CB2. Next to the filing cabinet is my scrap storage in clear plastic drawers. Some day I may try and come up with a creative storage options for all my scraps, but these drawers work for now. Above the desk on the wall is BYGEL wall storage system rail complete with four containers and a wire basket from IKEA. Above that is a BIGNITET curtain wire with RIKTIG curtain clips from IKEA as well. The Keep Calm prints were an ETSY find about a year ago and the "dream colorfully" sign was a steal at the Pottery Barn Outlet store.
The sewing table extremely functional. I have the height adjustment dials to adjust between my two sewing machines to create a flush surface. My father also created openings for the knee lifts to fit exactly for each machine in the side of the table. He also left enough space on the right side of the machine for the cords to fit and go under the table instead of on top. I love having my cords hidden.
As you can tell from the pictures, there is a lip around the edge of the cut out to hold the inserts for the table. I have an insert for my JUKI, my Bernina, and a solid insert if I need the table to have a solid surface.
To the right of the desk I have my project baskets to keep everything organized.
My project tracker has been attached to the wall along with my thread rack. I use to keep these on the desk, but now I have so much more space open to me with these on the wall.
At the end of the sewing machine, I have a kitchen cart from IKEA. This thing is amazing to keep beside me while I work. It holds all the important tools I need to keep handy while I'm working on top as well as additional storage below.
Hanging on the backside of the kitchen cart is a kneeling pad for basting purposes and a folding bag to carry projects to Modern Quilting Guild meetings or sew-ins.
The quilt rack is an original piece made by my father. It's gorgeous and I'm so lucky to have it in my possession. The quilt at the top is my grandmother's orange peel quilt that really inspired me to take up the craft of quilting. I'm so glad to have a place to display it where I can continue to be inspired by the generations before me.
My cutting/extension table is a wonderful addition to my room. It can be fully extended when I need the space or only partially extended when I just need a little extra surface to quilt or cut. When I don't need it, I can roll it back into it's little nook and it's out of the way. The six drawers on the ends are perfect storage for my scissors/rotary cutters, my gipsy grippers for my cutting templates, and the tape I use for basting. I still have three empty drawers, but I'm sure I'll find something to put in there eventually.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, we put wheels on everything that didn't originally come with them. My sewing room is completely portable and it's nice to be able to move my furniture around to meet the needs of any given project.
On the other side of the room is a rolling cart that holds whichever sewing machine is not currently being used, my cutting templates, and my sewing machine accessories for the machine on top. My newest sewing machine cover is working out wonderfully with my JUKI, and I can't wait to make another one to replace the too-small cover currently on my sewing table for my Bernina.
My design wall is HUGE and I love it! I've had it up for almost a year now and I can't imagine functioning without it. I did have a pretty WIP on it before I took this picture, but the quilt is a gift and I didn't want to give anything away.
My ironing board has a permanent home here in this corner of the room and my flying geese quilt is proudly displayed above it to bring some more color into the room.
The last thing remaining to be updated in this room is this china cabinet. I found this solid wood cabinet for $75 on Craigslist. I plan on painting this a fun color, but I haven't completely decided on which color yet. It's perfect for fabric storage on top and craft storage below.
I had several requests for a before and after shot.
