Sort of. I should clarify. My sewing room moved. Long story short…I felt cramped sewing in the office with my husband trying to effectively use the same space. I made him go look at bigger houses (not solely for this reason, but it was part of it). We couldn’t find anything we liked. He asked what we could do to make our current house work better? And…I moved into the guest room…which is no longer a guest room. It’s mine…ALL MINE!!! <Insert maniacal laugh here>
I had wood floors put in, painted the walls…and there will be more on all of that later as it’s still in transition and a bit of a mess at the moment. I don’t do well with mess. BUT…I made a really nice purchase. Possibly over paid…I don’t care. I’ve professed my love for my 1800’s pie safe before, and now I have a gorgeous rustic 1800’s hutch as well…perfect for my new sewing room.
Indulge me as we gaze upon it lovingly will you?
Lets talk storage. It was lacking folks. I used to have stuff stashed all over the house…mainly my master bedroom closet. And lets just say that someone’s clothes are getting a bit out of control in there…and they aren’t mine people. But, really, it’s just annoying to be mid project in the wee hours of the night, sneaking into your own closet to fetch some fabric, then tiptoeing out only to trip over a dog on your way out. This hutch answers so many storage prayers. It’s so spacious…and behind that cabinet door are two very deep shelves for storing scraps in proper bins. YES!
Of course the upper shelves need to be all about fabric eye candy, like this…
Oh, and lets not forget the fat quarters that need to be stored in lovely containers. I found these media boxes by Target’s “Threshold” line that were the perfect size.
They’re not hard on the eyes either. (Although it’s driving me batty that I still haven’t written on the little labels.) My nerdy side loves that they sort of look like fancy card catalog drawers. And those little bits of metallic running through them…yeah…I know.
