I was given this really large, really ugly sewing table awhile ago. I wasn't sure what to do with it. I already had a desk and didn't have room for more. I loved the idea of having a sewing table, but it was just too big. I don't have any before pics, but take my word for it, it was ugly. I got out the chalkboard paint and went crazy.
I can store all my wires under one side* and still use the other side for my sewing machine. I figured I can jot down measurements or notes while I'm working. I'm excited and can't wait to get to work.
My daughter and her friend demonstrated all over my desk for me. Not exactly what I had in mind, but they approve and thought my desk was cool. Making something a teenager thinks is cool is really hard to do, so I'm happy.
* for some reason, I can't upload any more photos. I have some of the cord storage. Oh well. I'll try later.
