Sewing Room in Boxes

A couple of years ago when my friend Michelle moved from Idaho to Delaware she had a post called "Sewing Room in a Box" but her boxes held all her "stuff".
I recently had a conversation with hubby about moving my "stuff" from the little room off the family room to the 2nd floor of the house that was vacated by my son about a year and a half ago.  At the time I did paint it a nice buttercup yellow, had a new ceiling fan installed, and heavy duty shelving put up against 2 walls.  THEN.....nothing.  The room sat.  Over the holidays it became a catch all for gifts, wrapping paper and more recently when my daughter got a puppy and didn't want things damaged with a new pup around, that stuff went in the sewing room. 
On Saturday I decided after lunch that it was time....get the room cleaned out and either store it away or donate/toss it.    It took probably 4 hours to do but it is now clean and neat. 
 I went and bought a few more bins at Walmart (I seriously think I need to get stock in Rubbermaid by the way). 
So then on Sunday I went to my local quilt shop and ordered some Horn of America furniture.  I got a nice cabinet for my machine with a nice size work area, a new chair, the insert to put around the machine and a really great cutting cubbie! 
Today, YES TODAY, the furniture was delivered!!!  I can't wait for Saturday.  Hubby and son will assemble everything then.  As Robin said.....keep a "curse word count". LOL
I have faith it will be just fine!

I'll show pictures of the set up once it's all ready for a picture.

Oh, how fun, Peg! I'm looking forward to the "after" photos of your new room!!

How fun! You deserve a new sewing room. Like Conni said, can't wait to see the photos.

I can't believe it!!!! Another something in common. It must be the name.... When my son moved out and the room was empty, I took one look and said "I think I can put this room to good use". My son actually moved me out of the basement and into the now empty room. Enjoy your new room. I sure enjoy mine. Good luck with the move.

How exciting!!! How clever of you to paint the room a color you could decorate around, after the kids left. You're a pretty smart cookie, Peg!!
