This is the stuff I have to organize. I have a 500-600 sq. ft. apartment that has a kitchinette, living room and a bedroom. Seems I have to repurpose a few things to make it more convenient when I decide to sew. Just think - another two machines on their way!
I had a home office set up in my bedroom that I've since almost dismantled. I have a desk, and two shelving units that I'm going to repurpose. My bedroom is small but until I get other furniture, I'll have to make do with what I have!
I thought of clearing off my long dresser - there are two lamps, my jewelry box and perfume on it right now but it would be the perfect height for a cutting table! It's about 60" long so sounds like the perfect length too.
I thought if I put my desk at right angles to the wall with the shorter shelving unit next to it that it would make a good sewing area. The taller shelving unit would be just a few feet behind it. It currently holds my books but I think I'll only keep the ones I use regularly and pack the rest away to make room for sewing stuff.
Sounds like a plan to me and I'll post pics as soon as I've completed it. It might take a while - so don't expect overnight results! :)
