Progress with the sewing craft room thus far. He is still building the cabinets for the sewing machine and serger. I have cut down my supplies by half and passed them along to a friend of my daughter who sews. I still have a lot of weeding to do' but it is so hard to when you have hoarder dna.
Any storage ideas would be welcome. I have to keep my fabrics in tubs because I have 3 dogs, they are not allowed in there but somehow when I'm in there they have to be in there too.

My children have all graduated from college and tech school, got married and moved out. So I and the hubby are now empty nesters. I had to go out of town for a few weeks and while I was gone the hubs gutted our daughters former room. He surprised me with a fabulous industrial sewing machine and my own sewing room! I no longer have to sew in our home office. I have storage. This is the progress so far. It will also include cabinets and counters and a built in ironing station. I am so happy with his progress so far. He decided to tackle the closet first, he built the shelves and he also painted the room and put in new carpet and light fixtures.

Yea he is a keeper, it only took 34 years of marriage to get it . He is a cabinetmaker by trade.
So the rest of the room will be fantastic. I finally moved all my supplies into the closet and i forced myself to only have 4 tubs of fabric, donating about half of my sewing and crafting horde to one of my daughters friends. I taught her and my daughter how to sew ( my kid shows no interest now). She was thrilled shes as addicted as me to sewing but she does mostly costumes and cosplay, were Iam into clothing and making my toddler grandson stuff.

I also put most of my fabric on comic book boards it makes it much easier to see in the tubs.
