new cutting table/desk
I was at a thrift store, about a month ago, that was going out of business and found this desk for one dollar! I thought it would be perfect for my cutting table/sewing table! I was using a wobbly card table for my cutting table and the dining room table for electric sewing machine.
My husband volunteered to paint it green for me! He also added grey to the front drawers.
The drawer that is supposed to hold a computer is perfect for my Janome and some of my tubs. There is even a small shelf for my teflon glider!
I was able to put my caddy that holds my scissors, rotary cutters and stuff in the bottom drawer. It is nice and deep. Of course Tiger wanted to be in the picture.
The middle drawer holds some of my attachments and stuff. Of course a delinter for all of the cat hair is also in there.
I was able to fit my big mat and my small rotating mat on it also. It is a BIG desk!
I used one of my cork boards from my old Sunday school class to hold the bigger and smallest rulers. Do you see Oreo's tail in that picture?
This is the desk before the drawers were added.
Here is a close up picture. (The beach towel on the back of my chair goes over my industrial head because I have not made a cover for it yet. It helps with cat hair and dust)
In order to get that big desk in there I had to rearrange the whole room. It was already a mess and everything got moved to the middle of the room. It was actually worse then this because all of the machines were also with that mess!
My husband also painted my three dollar chandelier. I was going to put jars on there, but no matter what way I try, it just will not work. Oh well.
Tomorrow, I'll show you the rest of my sewing room! Now that it is clean again I should be able to get some more sewing done!
