A while back I posted about my sewing room (here and here), which I have to say I love and was working for me. I still have not resolved my design wall issue (I am still using portable boards), but I have made some other updates that are still in progress. I will admit, I am having to work out how to use all my space, as I need more room mostly due to fabric buys and WiPs/Projects for the year.
So come, enjoy an updated tour 🙂
First off, I added wall shelves at the back of my storage desk over the weekend. I have labelled everything for you all on whats on the shelves. I have two more additions (see edits in blue), I want to make:
- Adding a rack at the bottom of the shelves for hanging quilts etc.
- Adding an open magazine rack to the side to store Accuquilt dies. (thinking about this one from Ikea)
These are the items already to go and be hung on the rack when it’s up.
In between the project desk/cutting table/fabric storage and my sewing machine, I plan to hang my craft storage board I made (with the hubby’s help).
I want to say, I work better when things are more organized. I am not sure if this is me procrastinating or actually coming up with more creative ways to store fabric…anyway the next photos show, in my re-organization, I have invested in project bins for my 2014 goals.
My bookcase + Project Rack are full of lots of possible projects, some additional supplies and my craft books.
I found a great use for the space under the couch 🙂
Finally, I thought I would give you an overview of the main space, with the current updates collectively.
