I have a wonderful husband who seems to be able to do anything. I found a desk through a website called ana-white. I have always wanted a craft desk from pottery barn or something similar from Crate and Barrel, but did not want to spend $1000 to get it. Plus, think of all the fabric buying that would take away from!!! So here is the desk that my husband is building for me this weekend:
Plan found here
Details found here
I will have room now for my friends or mom to sew on one side while I sit on the other. One end will be used as a cutting zone and the other end as the pressing/ironing zone. I will be able to bring my fabric out of the closet and onto shelves nicely organized. My husband is going to attempt to place two drawers in the middle area I can pull out to store my rotary blades, scissors, etc!! I can't wait.
I also plan to paint the room the same color as the rest of the house, move my quilt wall and better organize my wall items. I will be able to keep my dress form in the corner instead of the closet. I have some accessories I am going to be sewing to add to my desk and room as the process continues. I have no doubt when this is finished, that it will be hard to go to work and not stay and play in my craft room. I will post pictures as the process starts, continues and when complete! I hope to have the room done and finished as I see it no longer than a month. Keep checking back!!
