Sew Easy Work Space

December 4, 2012

I finally got my sewing room (or space!) finished!  I have been needing--okay, wanting--a place where I can sew or quilt.  It has taken me a while, but I finally came up with a solution!

I have been on many of the social websites, trying to find out how I can do-it-myself without spending a lot of money.  After much research, I came up with a solution. First, I had to move the book shelf and the many kids' books it kept.  Second, I used an old typewriter table for my sewing machine and bought a cheap, fold-up table from Sam's Wholesale Club for $34.95.  (Eventually, I am going to get a serger and may need more space, but, for now, this works!) I have plastic bins underneath the table for storage that I bought on sale at Target.  Then, I bought some material and made the table skirt to cover my make-shift cutting table. 

Alas, here are the results:



 
 
I have gone back and forth on whether I should lose the table skirt, but I like the way it covers all the "stuff" underneath.  It looks a bit messy right now, but I will eventually clean it up.  Either way, I'm proud that I finally accomplished a task that I have been meaning to do for a long time now. 
 
So, off to sewing I go!!!   :)
