Sewing Room

Here are photos of my newly reorganized and revamped sewing craft room. I reused and repurposed a lot of vintage items for organization. It was finished in October 2014. Thank you for visiting. I hope one of the ideas inspires you!

One end of my sewing room. The table is 127″ long x 36″ deep.
The peg board at one end. This mainly
holds sewing items. I used cans covered
with scrapbook paper to hold things.
I used E-6000 glue and small nails to attach vintage yardsticks along the table edge
that was unfinished.
I found this unfinished tool caddy at a garage sale. I used homemade
chalk paint and distressed it. Then I used 2 large canned fruit cans
to hold pens, pencils and markers.
I found this little shelf at a garage sale a while back. I
used chalk paint and distressed it. It holds jars of small
items. The odd shaped jars are new canning jars from
Germany. I put scrapbook paper on the tops of the
lids.
This bulletin board is on the wall at the opposite end of the table from
the pegboard. I can pin up patterns, notes, etc.
Another little shelf I found and painted.
I am not sure what this shelf thing was
for but I painted it to hold my ribbons, etc.
This drawer was from my grandma’s house. I later grew up in the house. My
great grandfather built it. My husband put casters on it so I can roll it
around. I have it under the table right now holding jars for crafts.
My favorite stepladder lives under the table.
I am short so I need it for a lot of the shelves.

These are some of the shelves above the table. I have a lot of sewing
and craft related vintage items displayed around the room. The top shelf is
reserved for those items.
This cabinet is directly across from the table
wall. It holds all my knitting, crochet,
embroidery supplies. Above it are more
supplies and collectibles.
To the left of the cabinet is what I call
The Tower. Each section is 3 drawers
connected that stack on one another. I
have all kinds of supplies in them and
they will hold the large scrapbook
paper.
This sits beside The Tower. This
piece is very sentimental to me.
It came from my grandma’s
kitchen and was the original
flour bin. My dear husband
put casters on it so I can wheel
it around.
Next to the cabinet is the closet. I had my
husband put shelves in there years ago. Another
drawer from my Grandma’s kitchen.
The first set of shelves by the closet hold various supplies and my
large paper cutter and long reach stapler. The next shelves hold my ironing
supplies and my laminator.
Above the paper cutter are shelves that hold vintage
sewing supplies. I love these things!
These bookshelves are on the wall to the right of the table. I also have
a rolling cart of tools and supplies sitting next to them. The bottom 2
shelves are for sewing books and craft and vintage decorating
magazines.
The top shelf is for some of my Sock Monkeys. I don’t collect monkeys,
just Sock Monkeys. LOL! I especially like the vintage ones. I am crazy
about them.
Some more collectibles on the second shelf.
The third shelf holds the wool yarn I brought back from Iceland 2 years ago.
I almost had a whole suitcase of yarn! I knitted the little mitten from the yarn.

Some time in the future I will post about some of my vintage sewing collections.

Thanks for visiting!

    We are in the process of having our second floor renovated. One of the 3 bedrooms will be my craft room. I have waited so long for this. I will finally have all my craft materials in one place and I will be able to sew whenever I want and not have to put my machine away when we need the dining room table. I got a lot of ideas from your post. Thank you!
