Busy weekend

Last week I mentioned I was working on a project in the sewing room and here it is. We had this counter top from a would-be home improvement project gone bad. I figured it would be cool on top of my two Estate brand hobby room cabinets.

It took a lot more time than I thought it would. With the lip on the counter Bret had to put something under the top to raise it up so I could open the drawer and doors. We also discovered just how wrong this top was for our previous project, it was 6 inches deeper than we had thought, so it had to be supported on the wall as well. I'm an impatient person so it was hard to have a project seem never ever ending but I'm so happy with the result.

Behind the curtain there are a couple of rolling carts .. something has to corral all that miscellaneous stuff that previously was just in bags and jammed on top of my table. Bit by bit I'm moving stuff back in, organizing, tossing, whatever it takes. But I'm so happy here. The counter is the perfect height for cutting. I have my tv on the end you can't see. My sewing table is on the opposite wall, and the ironing board can be moved around for convenience. Anyone working in a bedroom in a 60's house knows it's a limited space.

Those of you reading for a while you'll be shocked to know I cleared off my sewing table. A while back Nicole had a little messiest table contest and I think I came in second. Not something to be proud of that's for sure.

Ok, guess I should get to work. Just a few more things to get in that room. I'm off to Elizabeth's this morning to grab some blocks for blanket stitching. Hope you all have a happy day my sewing room sweethearts.

Oh, I just love it. Maybe you could come and redo my sewing room in a 70's bedroom!

I have a regular store bought cutting table which is a nice height. But I LOVE the skirt and I think I'll do the same thing on it to hide my stuff. I also have two long regular Office Depot tables. One I sit at to sew but the other holds stuff (ok, junk)(good junk). Undernieth always looks like a mess, so I think I'll make a skirt for that also. Thanks for the inspiration. Now get busy and get messy!!! (love the little nick nacks)!

When do we all get to come in play in your room? That is one wonderful space to work all your magic in. The curtains, way cute. I have a drafting table that I think I will put a skirt on. Thanks for sharing your wonderful space.

Your new counter for cutting turned out gorgeous and all that extra storage space will hide all the bits. Love the fabric you picked to hide everything. Just beautiful.
