My Sewing Table Area


Hello, welcome to my sewing table! Tuesday was a very productive day with more progress on my sewing room and I accomplished a lot of little (personal) sewing tasks that needed to get done. I also did grocery shopping, cooked dinner and put up some new items on etsy. Yeah, I deserved that wine at the end of the day. Hahaha!!!

Mary of Mourning Glory Designs had commented on how she likes to see how others sewer's organize their spaces, so here I am! I have a very 'use what I have' mentality when it comes to organization, so I dug around in our basement and found the shelving unit along with the black ikea buckets. We have the metal bars that go with the ikea buckets, but they were too long to fit behind the shelf brackets. I asked Derek if he could help me rig up something in order for the buckets to hang on the wall, he wanted to get all fancy and buy some new wood and I said, "Pfffft, use what we've got!". Scrap wood is A-OK with this gal! 


A closer look at the sewing table when it was first completed. I have been dreaming of my own sewing table for years, but apartment living did not allow for such a thing to exist due to space. Once we moved into the house, I knew I could make or find something that was reasonable in cost and I could customized for the room. A light bulb went off after reading the IKEA Hackers blog, so we took a trip to the store and we picked up two desk table tops and 6 adjustable legs to create the sewing table. Derek suggested using 2x4's to really make the two tops strong and secure, plus it added extra height to the table. I believe the cost was somewhere under $100 for all the materials, I can't say no to that!

Casual, minimal makeup, backwards wearing tunic outfit of the day.

So that was my Tuesday! :)

Thank you for reading, until next time!

  1. Aaaw why can't I sew? The less expensive alt. dresses cost one arm and a leg. But I don't feel like getting into it. Fortunately I find a lot of second-hand. But still...it must be wonderful to create your own garments! ^^

    1. I'm not very good at completely creating my own garments, but having moderate sewing skills comes in handy when modifying things! :) Love second hand shopping!!!

  4. Ikea rocks! I really miss living near one (the closest is nearly five hours south of us).

    What a lovely tunic. The lines on it all very becoming.

    Have a great week, dear gal!
