As you know I had the pleasure of an entire day at home – alone – yesterday. Pete took the kids on an adventure and while I had planned to spend the day sewing I couldn't face my sewing corner of the family room. So cramped, so dark, so chaotic.
I evaluated the space and realized that the insanely messy and underutilized "homeschool room" (an extra bedroom) could be transformed before the kids came home. Don't be startled, but there's a before picture coming.
Behold the transformation!
That's the same view, people! I rocked it. (Coffee for breakfast and ice cream for lunch didn't hurt for high-speed working.)
I painted the closet to match the room and installed floor to ceiling shelves, using what we had at hand. With all of my fabric in the same place for the first time I feel incredibly inspired to create.
Now all I need is some art hung on the walls and we'll be set. The whole room was put together with things we already had. Sofa table we don't use anymore became sewing tables, extra dining room chairs became sewing chairs, old bookshelves became project and fabric storage.

Wow, Baby! Inspiring. I love the before and after. It makes me a believer than I can transform my befores as well. 🙂
Thanks, mama! It was a fun (and fast) journey. xo R
you did ROCK IT! Great job! 🙂
Now I just need some decorating inspiration…
I see a spinning wheel tucked into the corner. Hmm. Any words of wisdom to share with me before I embark on the great spinning journey? I’m a blank slate right now. 🙂
I love seeing before and after transformations! How wonderful for you! Enjoy being inspired again!
Mary Jo, I was hoping youd be able to teach me! I just got it and havent learned to use it properly quite yet!
Thanks Tricia! Its been a blast having all that space to play in. What a transformation!
How lovely to have a space dedicated to creating! I’m waiting for the day when some extra space shows up in my home for a sewing room. It looks great!
It indeed felt like the space just showed up. This had been Lupines room – a play space really, but then Sage invited her to share his room. So a-sewing we shall go…
