As promised, here are my before and after pictures of my sewing room.
I have a Bernina 220 and the cabinet is a Horn. It was purchased on Ebay from Ken's Sewing and Vacuum store. I got it at a great price because they were discontinuing that color wood - Albany Oak. I have some cubicles under the drop out which store more of my Sizzix dies. I bought them at Michaels - 40% off sale. They were super easy to put together.
The curtains were purchased at Pottery Barn Kids, as well as the baskets and pretty pink and green fabric inserts and the area rug. The valance, which I'm in the process of making now, are from sheers that I bought from Pottery Barn Kids. Bed, Bath and Beyond was the place to go for the curtain rods and the pretty fancy pillows on the love seat.
It's amazing what a little paint can do. I can't wait until I get my counter. Once I put that in the middle of the room it will finally be complete. Here's a picture of the counter.
It has alot of storage and you can fold down a section of the top to make more room if needed around the work space. It's hard for me to figure out exactly how much I'll be able to store in it. I ordered it out of a catalog, it wasn't on the showroom floor. It is made by Bermex. It is counter height. I also bought a wonderful stool that swivels to go with it and a caster chair for my sewing machine table.
A part of me wants to get rid of the corner curio cabinet and get more of the wonderful shelves from Ballard Design. I also got the bench with the cushions there as well. The other shelf I will use to store my paint bottles. It will be nice to finally see what I have right there in front of me instead of rummaging through drawers. That shelf is from Making Memories. It's called the Making Memories Embellishment Center. You can get them at Michaels.
Here is a better look at the cubby shelf. I plan on storing my buttons and beads. The shelf is from Pottery Barn (not Kids) and the Pin board was also purchased from their catalog.
I also purchased a ribbon storage rack it's very popular and I found it on Amazon. I have a CD holder underneath the cubby. My Sizzix dies fit perfectly in them. The little accent table on the side of the sofa was purchased from Bed, Bath & Beyond. They assembled it for me. I also have my ironing board hanging on the wall. It's so convenient. I also purchased a thread holder that I mounted on my pin-board, works out great.
Well I hope you enjoyed the "preview" of my sewing room. There's still lots more to get done, but I'm off to a great start. At least I can work in the room now without running all over the house for my stuff.
I'll keep you posted.
