I just want to share a quick sneak peek of something coming to my sewing room soon. I am so excited!
When my parents were over for Christmas, I told my dad about a cutting table I wanted for my sewing room, and asked if he could build it for me. It’s basically an open-sided cabinet with a surface big enough for my biggest cutting mat and space inside to stack clear bins full of STUFF. To my utter delight, within just a few days he had started work on it.
I went by today to take a look at it and I couldn’t be happier. Y’all, this thing is huge. The top is roughly 40 inches wide by 24 inches deep. Perfect. The frame is walnut and it has pegboard on all three sides.
He wasn’t quite done with it, but it’s almost there. I am expecting my guys to go pick it up this weekend. Take a look:
I am planning to use these bins to fit in it. I think there will be room to stack them four-high…not so many I can’t get to things, but enough to hold loads of fabric. And, because the bins are clear, I will be able to see what’s in them.
I am thinking on ordering a new cutting mat, in RED, of course, like this one from Sullivan:
Since the lighting in my workroom is not wonderful, I am also debating buying this Ott lite:
So what do you think? Is this a dream? I was so pleased with what my dad made me that I asked him for a second one. Yeah, I am greedy, if you must know. No, seriously, he just exceeded my expectations so far that I was over the moon! I am seeing these placed side by side, with lamps clamped to the corners, and both with shiny new red mats. And yes, FULL of stuff. Are you with me?
Wonderful organization is coming to my workroom soon. Yes, yes, I am one seriously blessed girl.
