I took over our coat's closet (only other closet we have) in the new apartment and converted it into my sewing nook. Luckily, hubby never complain about such things. In fact I think he'd rather me have that space (with "wood" flooring) rather than having to contend with stray pins and needles that can get lost on the carpet... ;)
Anyways, the space is now in acceptable working condition and I am currently working on another blouse.
Here is the before picture:
And here are the after pictures:
Left side of desk
Right side of desk: My little Brother machine on the right side, and the dress form next to it. And I am so thrilled with the electrical box on the right side there where there is electric connection right in there for my light and sewing machine without the need of messy cords and extensions!
Upper right side: 4 clear containers of delicate fabric (others are stored in linen closets nearby)
Upper left side: 4 clear containers with patterns and 4 smaller containers with threads, ribbons and such (where is my button collection and zippers? :( must be in one of the 14 remaining boxes still in Iowa...)
I wished I can take the pictures in a better angle, but the hallway is pretty narrow. Full frontal of my sewing nook is not a possibility.... But it's pretty spacious to do my sewing and putting things away. For chair, I just drag our dining chair to it. And I do my pattern and fabric cutting and so on on the dining table.
