My Updated Craft Room
I have been trying out a new floor plan in my craft room, and I am loving it!
Last November (when I started blogging) my craft room looked like this:
My cutting table was near the closets and the sewing cabinet was near the window. It worked very well for me. But when I bought my Baby Lock Tiara, I had to put the sewing cabinet in front of my design wall with the Tiara in front of the window.
Having my Tiara was well worth the change, but I missed the easier access to my design wall. I had to move my sewing cabinet (thank goodness for wheels) in order to use the design wall.
So after lots of measuring and thinking, my sweet husband helped me rearrange the furniture. I am sure he thought I was crazy, but he humored me. Now I have my sewing cabinet in front of the window again.
It is so nice having it close to, but not blocking, my design wall. The white table you see in the picture above is my cutting table. The two sides can fold down and it can be rolled out of the way for even easier access to the design wall. So nice.
This is what it looks like with the cutting table set up. I love having access to three sides of the table.
I wondered if it would feel tight while I was sewing, but I have lots of space.
And now my Tiara is near the closest. I like having it even with the edge of my corner Ikea table. It used to stick out before.
Updated September 12, 2014: Here is what the Tiara looks like when I am quilting a big quilt. I still have plenty of room to set up support tables. :)
My ironing board still moves around wherever it is convenient for me. I like having it next to a table to set the iron down on.
The only thing I am still getting used to is walking in next to the table.
However, I can make my table like an island simply by putting one side down. That helps with the tunnel feeling.
I think these changes are here to stay, but it is nice to know I can always change it back later.
