I think you should switch the things around and send his record collection to the living room.  If it's like a wide hallway, then that's the perfect kind of space for floor to ceiling shelving to house all those records.

Yeah, I guess I should just tell him I'm going to be in his bedroom during the day.  He's in college, so not only is it a free place to stay - we also bought his ticket out here!  I just feel weird about it :/

I'm lucky.. I have a sewing room. We have a three bedroom house with a dining room and a huge breakfast nook so our dining table is in the breakfast nook, we have a guest bedroom and my sewing room which doubles as my My Little Pony storage room.. Haha Smiley

I live in Hawaii, too (Big Island), but we move around a lot, so I've had SEVEN different sewing rooms in the last 3 years.

When we have a spare bedroom, I use that, but my favorite was on an enclosed lanai; lots of room, lots of sun, lots of air.  Second fave was in the covered breezeway between house and garage.  In another house, I used an open lanai with a wide roof.  Least fave has been the on-and-off the dining room table. 

Suggestion: get a TV for the guest room, and use the living room when you have guests.

Wow, when you had sewing on the lanai did you have and problems with humidity??

On and off the dining room table is definitely the least ideal.

We are looking at moving right now (just made an offer on a house), and I may end up with a dedicated sewing area... probably not a whole room, but at least part of one!  That's pretty exciting.

I have humidity issues indoors or out.  I keep my machine covered when I'm not using it, and don't seal up my fabrics.

Worse than humidity, our last home (the fabulous screened lanai) was near the volcano and anything left uncovered got coated with VOG (volcanic smog).  Tools rusted, jewelry corroded, and my ears (pierced 35 years ago and completely healed) got irritated from earwires stored in a room with only a tiny window.

We live in a 2 bedroom 1 bath apt. but have a dining room & since we eat near the Tv i got the Dining room as my sewing/scrapbooking area. & dh even helped me!..i got an old sewing cabnet against one wall a $50 fold up table that is 7 inches & then another smaller table simular to that for my scrapbooking..i love my crafting space even tho i wish i had my own bedroom but its ok..this will certainly do..i also have plenty of shelves for storage & 3-7 drawer carts for my fabric & scrapbooking storage..

I say, move your husbands office AND the tv into the guest room. Then you can take over the living room with your crafting!  Grin Hee hee....

Is there room in your bedroom or kitchen/dining area for a hanging shelf unit with a pull down table surface attached to the front? When it is up it looks like a cabinet front. When it is use, it is a table with shelves above on the wall.

But, I still vote for my first idea!

P.S. I wouldn't mind if you were sewing in the guest room while I was there visiting! Hint! Hint!

hello all,
Mine is out on the back of the house, like a deck but enclosed. It doubles as a bedroom for company too, but this year it is too cold.

I guess they will have to deal with the basement this time----small but warmer.
