I soon discovered when Paige and I decided to do Etsy that I had out grown my small loft as my sewing space. I was in denial for quite awhile. But as I was making the OU quilt it became apparent that I couldn’t sew a quilt that is actually bigger than the space I’m sewing in.

So, I made the decision to turn my master bedroom into a studio. I hired my neighbor Nick to help me out with the project. First things first….the design wall. We removed all the furniture and hung a 8′ x 8′ design wall on the largest wall. It’s 2 4′ x’4′ insulation boards taped together and covered in batting and screwed into the wall.

I bought 2 6′ tables for sewing. Now the SewMod girls won’t be squished around the kitchen table when we get together at my house. I still need to find some chairs for the tables. And when sewing machines aren’t occupying the table I can use it as an extra cutting space for the bolts.

This wall will soon have bookshelves for the fabric that are coming in.

I did have to leave the treadmill in here but tha’s ok. Daisy uses it to jump into her favorite spot on the window ledge. She likes to sit on her quilt and terrorize the neighborhood:(

I moved my dresser, which didn’t even have any clothes stored in it, onto the loft. I’m using it as a desk for Etsy, designing, and storing some of the Etsy merchandise in. It fit so perfectly there. It was like it was meant for that space. And I’m definitely replacing that awful chair. I’m stalking something at Ikea:) Just haven’t committed yet.

My Aviary quilt looks so awesome on the banister.

Now my bedroom is downstairs in the tiny “office”. Iv’e adjusted pretty well. We painted my bed, which was the color of the dresser that’s on the loft, black,  and I ruffed it up a bit to look worn. I think it turned out really nice. I wanted to that for some time now. I’m glad I went for it.

Everything I needed ft in here, including Daisy’s bed, and most importantly my flat screen. I don’t think I would have made this move if my most loved tv wouldn’t have fit in here:)

The tuffet is being used as my nightstand.

I even had room to display a few quilts.

I think it’s time to have the girls over for a little sewing, don’t you?
