This used to be my sewing room.

This is what it looks like now...

It is now an office/reading/TV area. I still have to "finesse" the area, but my beautiful sunny sewing room is a thing of the past. We decided to move the office in and the sewing room out as it is the first room you see when you walk through the hallway into our home. I had problems keeping tidy, and it always bugged me to look in there before guests came over. I guess it didn't bug me enough to keep it neat, but still it bugged me that other people would see my mess creative area.

So downstairs every went. there is an alcove that wasn't being used for much, so here is my new sewing spot.

This area also needs to be finessed, but for the most part will stay the same. Usually guests don't go into our downstairs, so it can look like I have a lot on the go (and I do!), and I won't worry about it. I have a desk for the machine and a larger desk for cutting and laying out of blocks etc. The big thing I will miss is the windows as there are no windows, but the walls are painted a cheerful yellow toned cream (I know it looks very yellow), I have all my creature comforts. I have my music, radio, and a good view of our big TV.  Chloe doesn't know what to think yet-she doesn't like change- but I am sure soon she'll come down and lay on a quilt on the design floor!

The first thing I noticed in the new room were the sunny yellow walls. Good for you. My sewing disaster (room) is the first room everyone walks in, and I know what you mean about not keeping it neat. Will be waiting to see if your creative vibes are still working.

Enjoy your new 'spot'. If you're happy that's all that matters. Relax and sew! :-)

It looks nice, I hope you get to use it often.

I had a main-floor sewing room for a while and had a glass door so couldn't just close the door to contain my mess and that grew old. Hope the new sewing digs work out okay. You can always move back up if it doesn't, but adding good quality lighting makes a world of difference in a windowless space. I've been known to move things around a time or two...nothing is nailed down here, lol. :o)
