Sewing Room Progress

We're in the process of moving my sewing room from the upstairs bedroom to the lower level family room/den. I was planning to show you everything after I had it all set up, but it's taking a lot longer than I had hoped and I figured I'd post updates as each little project in the room gets tackled.

When we first moved into our house, my husband claimed this room and the first thing he did was put up his wall mounted fish (his biggest walleye caught on his annual fishing trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area). After living here for almost 3 years, I realized we really don't use this room. There was a couch and a tv , but we never sat down there. We always watched tv in our main living room. 

I was feeling cramped in the sewing room upstairs and started talking about moving. After a few months, I finally convinced my husband, the fish moved to another wall in the house and now the room is mine! I sold some of the extra furniture on craiglist so I could buy the pieces I really wanted. Today the couch sold and now I can purchase the cutting table! Since it's my birth month (yes, I use my birthday as an excuse all month) my husband has promised to go with me to ikea to get the new table. 

Here's a look at the progress. I've just stuffed the shelves for now and will organize later. So consider these "keeping it real" pictures and excuse the cords and the few "man" items left behind.

This is the empty wall where the cutting table will go. I need to see this one in person, but so far it's my first choice. And I realized I missed taking a picture of the best feature in this room: a fireplace! Yes, it's going to be quite cozy I think :)


  1. i love sewing rooms! thanks for sharing yours! looks like you have a lot of natural light and great floors for sweeping up thread! what's the tall thing next to your table and then over by the windows?


  2. Hi Courtenay! Those are two displays that we have used at craft shows. They are a bit bulky, but good and sturdy for shows...I'm trying to figure out if I can use them in my new space, we'll have to see!

  3. WOW love it! Amazing.. I need to redo mine and that cutting table will be beautiful in there.. Keep us posted, thanks for the pictures...

  4. lucky duck! you have a fireplace in there?!

  5. Love the cutting table that you want. Drawers and storage space are always ideal for any craft type table in my humble opinion
