Making my room into a real sewing studio seem to be a never endig story. I wanted to share it with you a few times, and I even took pictures. But afterward I changed a few things and then my mind turned into not blogworthy materiaal. So I just stored it on my external hard drive without doing somthing with it. And then I realised, my studio will never be finished. I’ll alway keep changing things )expect of they are screwed into the wall- so I descided I could live sharing pictures of my sewing studio without it being the exact same room that’s below me while I’m writing this blogpost.
So ladies and gents, without any further ado I’de like to present you my sewing studio:
So this is how it kinda looks today, as I told you I’ll always be changing up some stuff. The chair on these pics are now in the kitchen. They were way to high to sew ergonomicly, and the were actually bought to be part of our kitchen. And there are probably some thing I could tell that look different now to day -let’s not talk about the state of my room- but I won’t bother you with that.
SInce the wall are very-very high in this room -more then 3 meters- I could make my own indoor walkclimbing room, oh I mean I wanted to take advantige of the hight and put a ton of storige room on the wall by using a high rack and hanging cabinits.
Btw, if you want to make your own mini fabric bolts. You can find out how to make them here.
Is anyone thinking about the same thing as me?
My sewing, drafing, cutting, everything table are expedit kabinets (now Kallax) from Ikea on wich I -yes really me- mounted a table top and wheels. That gives me a ton a space to work on and a ton of storage! Bonus!
I wanted to show off my books and fabric so I chose to hang a mostly open cabinet. Of course I’de been drooling over all those love pegboard. So I decided to get one, or more. They were a pain in the ***** to find in Belgium. But I did find them!
And yes I did spend an intire day in my room to check out where the sun would hit the wall so it wouldn’t damage them. And no I didn’t hang all of those things on the wall by myself! My sweat, dad, mom, brother in law and my boyfriend helped me. I mostly told them what to do since I had the plan in my head. Thanks again!
On the opposite side of the room there are two small cabinets to hold my small things like buttons and ribbons.
I gave the dress dummy a nice place to spend the time in the studio.
I love it when I can integrate old stuff or other peoples stuff in my room. Stuff they gave to me ok, I didn’t steal it. The cup from Beauty and the Beast -for once it isn’t Ariel- is something I’ve had for at least 20 years. And now I use to store my pins. I’m still trying to find a good place to show off my moms first sewing machine. I would love to store it in the open rack, but it is so heavy! I’m scared it would breack the planck. So I’ll need some more time on that.
If you’re curious about how this room looked before the transformation you can go and check out update one, two and three. I suggest you check out number one first.
Soon I’ll be making a video about how and where I stored everything. And then you’ll see a few thing have changed since making this pictures and filming the video.
And now I’m really curious about your sewing space. Do you sew at the dining room table – as I did for a long time- or do have a corner, closet or a whole room? I’d love to see it. Please let me know where you sew in the comments. If you can share pictures or a video please leave the link. I’de love to check it out!
Talk to you soon!!!
