Hi, I am Lish from Ky. I live in a 2bd triplex . We ( my finacee and me) have remodeled the back bd, to be for sewing and my artwork( drawing, painting, oil pastels, charcoal and pen & ink), I recycled a pretty yellow pantry my grandmother had took the door off, and made it now a place to store my fabric. My Dave bought me a craft table for cutting and laying things out, I have an antique oak table 3'x6' which i use for 2 sewing machines. And we got a great buy at Hospics, I got a cool real wooden end table large square table which 2 shelves, I use this for my serger and misc sewing supplies on shelves which include several lined baskets, sewing tins for patterns.
I have a huge metal shelf unit that was made for outside or inside, its heavy and tall. On this i use to store my art supplies, and sewing misc supplies. It is a huge bedroom but still not big enough.lol
Some how I don't seem to be able to get out of my living room. I even sleep on my futon, because of my back. I bought a coffee table from Walmart that has a top surface, an area below, and a large drawer underneath. I bought a seperate table for my serger and put my sewing machine on the coffee table. The sad thing about this is, I live in a large 2 bedroom apt. by myself and might as well be living in an efficiency apt. Except that the 2 bedrooms are filled with stuff I just can't throw out or am saving to use later. I too paint. I do oil paintings so all those supplies are in my living room too. Between the art easel and my two dress forms, it looks like a crazy person lives here. I am a nurse and so far no one has said I'm crazy, but they haven't seen my living room. OH! I forgot, I also have tons of plants. I love it. Thank God I live alone -except for my cocker spaniel "Captain Howard" and he doesn't care what the place looks like as long as he gets his puppy hugs and a pig ear when I get home from work. It's good that you have someone who appreciates your interests! I wish I did. Laurie PS. I grew up in Lexington, Ky.-Great State!
Hi, I live in Bardstown, Ky. I, too, have lots of different crafts with lots of different craft stuff. Just this past weekend, a daughter moved out and I took the bedroom for my sewing room. Right now it looks like an organized disaster.
