Sewing Room Makeover

I am so very blessed this last week to have had a few lovely cupboards fitted in my sewing room (also used for scrapbooking, and the household office).
...........Here are the before and after piccies....
..............................BEFORE...................................



How messy is that! Really just a mish-mash of whatever furniture was left over from the rest of the house.....
...............................NOW...............Ta-Da..................... THE AFTER...............................

....................and after a little bit of 'playing' the insides of the cupboards look like THIS....................


.............well for a day or so, until I actually use them!!!!! Ha Ha................

Now I have a place for all my 'stuff' and it is a real dream..........and I have plenty of workable workspace too. I will have my sewing machine on a table on the other side of the room.......I'l have piccies of that when I finally get around to making some sense out or the sheer mess on the other side of the room!!!!
So I have been a busy girl, emptying out the room in readiness for the kitchen man. Now I still have stuff in piles around the house that I don't want to clutter my new room with!!!! Aarghh....there's always too much gear when you're a hoarder like me!!!!   So, I now need to sort out other cupboards in the house to fit the overflow.....it's like the domino effect; one job leads to another......so I'd better keep moving on it, so I can find the time to use my new room for some creativity.......

Oh, and I think I need some curtains and pretty things around, so that's a new project to add to the list...
I hope you're having a lovely weekend........

That is just the most wonderful space for sewing-love all your cupboards and what a great length of bench to have- I think you're right about sewing rooms ending up with all the odd assortment of furniture that don't go anywhere else- but you don't have to worry about that now!!!

How lucky are you, my sewing room has the same leftover furniture, I would love to have inbuilt cupboards they look great.
