I used to live in "The Most Wonderful Apartment Ever (tm)" by myself but it was sadly lacking a craft space.  I used the kitchen table for my sewing and every time i wanted to do so much as hem a pair of pants I had to set up the sewing machine, go digging through closets and dressers around the house for materials, lay out my cutting on the floor . . . all sorts of unpleasantness.

Then, just recently, my fiance and I moved into our first condo together and WE HAVE A LOFT which works perfectly as his office (he runs an indie record label) and my sewing area! 

I put the whole thing together for about $150 including ARTWORK!  The desk was from the American Cancer Society shop and it came with the chair for $60. The chair was covered in a really gross plaid so i recovered it in a black and cream toile.  The four door chest next to the desk (click the picture for a larger view . . . its sort of dark in the small version!) was from Ross, i talked them into discounting it because of some scratches on the back.  The artwork was all purchased or traded for on Etsy (you can see my blog for details on where I got the individual pieces!) and the frames were all purchased from Aaron Bros during their 1cent frame sale.

I LOVE finally being able to leave my sewing machine out where it belongs!!!

The whole space
