Evolution of a Sewing Room - Part 5

Yesterday, the cabinet makers were at the house installing the cabinetry and putting on the toe kicks.  We now have the base and upper boxes in the kitchen, butler's pantry, laundry room, all the baths and my sewing room.  The doors and drawers will be added as soon as the counter tops are in place.

Boy, oh boy, does this make me feel like this house is striding into the finish line (as it should, we only have one week until we move in).  I am positively giddy with excitement at this point!


In the picture, you can see my sewing room cabinet in place.  I designed this piece to do double duty as a cutting table and as a pattern/notion cabinet.  On one side there are six deep drawers.  On the other side there are three deep drawers and six shallow drawers.  I should be able to house my entire envelope pattern collection in the deep drawers and most of my notions (zippers, elastic, buttons, etc.) in the shallow drawers.  I am dying to fill up this bad boy with delicious sewing goodness.  My next moment of joy will arrive when my shelves are in place and I can go nuts loading the textiles into the fabric closet.

Okay so how long after the room is finished and moved in do I have to wait to beg for an invitation to come and sew with you?

You need to go out and buy some NEW fabric for your NEW sewing room!

Ohhh. How fantastic! I just turned about ten shades of envy green.

"I should be able to house my entire envelope pattern collection in the deep drawers ... "

Are these some famous last words? You will LOVE having a cutting table in the middle!

Yipe!!! I'm so excited for you :) You might want to rest now because unpacking can and will wear you out.

I can't tell you how much fun it's been for me, watching your new sewing space -- and indeed house -- come to fruition. So much fun. Thank you for sharing it!

More importantly, look at that cutting table with storage built in! A cutting island! I love it.
