While there are still some major changes I want to make, I just have to show this off! The space is the former kitchen. It has this great built in that I've been using to store all my crafting stuff, but there just wasn't any space for the sewing! It was chaos to say the least.

Before: This was after moving all my reenacting stuff to the basement and putting all the non-sewing stuff in the built in where it belongs.



A glimpse of the other side of the room with the built in on the far right. There are 3 floor to ceiling sections like that stuffed with, well stuff (note my hard working SO who did all this as a birthday present for me  Kiss)



Currently: Nothings quite in order yet but the difference is already noticeable!



The best part, a dedicated table for 3 of my 4 machines (Old Green is in the basement workroom) with plenty of light & bulletin boards and oh the space!



I still have a bunch to do. I want to paint it a bright shade of green (if I can decide on one that isn't too dark, to yellow or too "puke"), add bins in the storage unit, make some roman shades & a curtain, refinish the floors, get a rug, hang some art, get a new chair, change out the wall light etc. Still, I can't contain myself I'm so happy about the space. Finally it WORKS!!

TFL!

looks fabulous!  And how lucky to have someone do it for you.

You must be a *serious* crafter though- choosing crafting over eating. Wink

I'm in the process of building up my craft room. (I went with bright blue walls).  Anyhoo, I'm looking for a table - just like that!  Could you share any details on it?

Thanks so much. Cheesy

Cheesy The first thing I did when I moved in was move the kitchen! See that little bit of yellow behind my SO in the 2nd picture? That's the kitchen. This is a much better arrangement. The kitchen opens off the living room & the back porch & is much larger & (most importantly) I get a dedicated workspace.

Happy to! I designed this to my specific needs because I couldn't find a table that was right in stores. I looked for 2 years!

It's really more like a big shelf. 17 1/2" deep total, 16 of that is table. It is bumped away from the wall 1 1/2" to allow larger pieces of fabric to fall rather than pool up behind the machines. It's 30 3/4" high. Made from primed & painted MDF. Underneath there are 4 metal shelf brackets holding the table up and 2x2 decorative brackets on either end. The center angle has a 2x2 reinforcing strip that runs out from the corner. The strip is glued in place & does no reach all the way to allow for knee space. The corners are rounded so that I don't bump into them painfully.

That's basically it. I seriously love my machine table!

Ok I am drooling, can you tell Grin. So many of us would die to have a sewing/craft area that roomy, lucky dog! You did a great job. Hopefully once we move out our 2 bdrm trailor and build a house next year I will get my own space 'to create.'
