I sort of had a brainstorm tonight concerning my new sewing digs. I really am trying to make the most of this new space.
When I moved everything to the garage to start the bedroom renovations downstairs, I was realizing that there was a lot that could "go" that I was moving. These drawers hold a multitude of things. I will purge them later.
I had a little ironing board to my right on my L-shaped sewing table. Usually the serger goes there. I hardly ever use the serger. The ironing board was awkward to use.
When I passed through the laundry room earlier today, I saw my big board ironing board that I made back here. I was wishing I could use that for ironing. Then my inspiration struck. I could move up these four 3-drawer cabinets to use for storage and put the ironing board on them. But, alas, they were too short. I remember now that when I used it before, the drawers were on our hearth downstairs, bringing it to the perfect height.
I had two of the metal mesh crates for hanging files that I was this close (picture my thumb and index fingers a centimeter apart) to giving away. Voila! They raise the board to the perfect height as well as serving as a "bookshelf" on top of the drawers. The boxes in between them need to be purged as well. All in time, grasshopper.
Soon I will make a curtain to hide the drawers. It's too much to look at for me...it looks messy.
My computer was moved over to the right of my sewing machine. I didn't like the desk it was on anyway. There was so little storage that it wasn't worth the space it took up.
Some good lighting, and soup is on, baby!!
