Sewing room reno

I posted some pictures while my house was in major mess mode. I never posted pictures of any of the finished rooms. I thought you might like to see my new sewing room.
First some pictures of the before room. My favorite part is the dark paneling (NOT). All dark brown everything. Sewing table is a card table. ( Don't sew fast). I would like to say that the room looks like this because the house is under massive reno, but that would be a lie. The picture is from way before we started.

While we were having work done on the house, the DH and I went to IKEA. My wish list got really long while I was there. I did get some things for my room and I love my new space.
Two tables replace the card table and the old desk that was in the room.

I moved all D's books. Some are stored. Some went the half price book store. (I gave her the money).
Now I have more room for my books. ;)

The old carpet went and I have an easy to clean floor and a throw rug.

Storage from Target holds my yarn projects and my wool kits. (More yarn and wool in the closet).

Add the iPod docking station and I am one happy sewer.

Later.....Happy stitching
