Today I'm thrill to be participating in Karen's annual "Where Bloggers Create" party. You don't know how much and for how long I've been wanting to participate but sadly I really didn't have a space to share, not until now anyway, Yay!!! So lets us begin.
Please, won't you come in?
Welcome to my sewing/craft room.
For a while the kitchen and dining room had served as my "creative" work spaces but a few months back we decided to do a bit of redecorating and reorganizing our home and out of it came out my very own creative space.
As you enter the room you'll find my pretty french style bench. I like to sit here with a cup of coffee and wait for inspiration to hit. Well, sometimes I have my iPad with me and draw inspiration Pinterst and Blog surfing.
Next to it is my corner armoire where I keep my computer, printer/scanner and other electronics. All nice and neat in one area.
This space is quite petite. It's an awkward little room off the stair's landing so it has to look presentable all the time since our lower level has our family room and one has to walk through this room to get there. So pretty vignettes are a must.
Because it is such a small space I had to get creative. There is very little room to walk around much less to put in a cutting table or ironing board so, a piece of wood big enough to go on top of the stairs with an ironing pad did just the trick. When I am done using it, it tucks away neatly behind the door.
To the left of the stairs I have a bookcase that I repurposed as...
Storage, lots and lots of storage for all my sewing and crafting supplies. Love that it is all hidden behind a curtain, all nice and neat.
As we keep turning left we come to my actual sewing space. This is my vintage singer sewing machine table. It was handed down to me by my grandmother and it still works wonderfully. I love that I can store the machine away and easily access it when needed. The chair is also vintage. It was a recent thrift store find, It was the perfect addition...Love it!
Every bit of storage helps in this tiny space and I like when it looks pretty too like this vintage sewing basket. It was a gift from my sister-in-law and her mom.
And in our last little corner I have a side table that holds more crafting goods and a repurposed CD tower turned cubby storage...There's that lovely word again...Hee, Hee, hee.
Here's a closer look at the tower's cubbies
They can hold all sorts of goodies.
And just in case anyone forgets who's room this is *wink, wink*...
So there it is, my sewing/craft room tour. I do hope you enjoyed it.
I do appreciate you stopping by.
Hope you take a minute to go visit others who are also participating.
Wishing you all a wonderfully creative day.
A great big Thank You to Karen for being such a gracious hostess.
Hugs and Kisses,
