7 Quick Takes



~~ONE~~
 
I feel like this month is flying by! Thanksgiving is in two weeks and then it's practically December!
 
~~TWO~~
 
We are remodeling the sewing/office/clothing room. Michael is going to start after I take the kids to Georgia next week. I have spent the last several weeks "moving out" of that room. Not easy when it was filled to capacity!
 
~~THREE~~
 
Unlike decorating the rest of the house, this room is totally mine to outfit in any way I choose. I have all sorts of ideas. One whole wall will be our closet system with dressers and storage. But the rest of the space is mine!
 
~~FOUR~~
 
It still needs to be practical and usable. I will use it for sewing, and it will still be our office as well. I am thinking a retractable sewing/cutting table that folds into the wall, and storing my machines and sewing supplies in a cabinet over my clothes. My fabric will still be stored in the gem of a kitchen cabinet my mother in law found at an antique store.
 
~~FIVE~~
 
I will probably spray paint the filing cabinet, and get a new desk. Our current desk was some curbside trash we scored a few years ago. Very usable, but also very college dorm-like.
 
~~SIX~~
 
The floor right now is splintered wood, which we have covered with a mismatch of rugs and chair sliding mats. You can still get splinters if you step on the wood. I am thinking a very short carpet. Something I can still find my pins in.
 
~~SEVEN~~
 
Of course Michael is only starting the project while I am away. Between LMCA, SVC, kids, sports, and everyday life, it'll probably take several months to complete. Enjoy these before photos and send any suggestions my way!

What an exciting project! I think it would be so useful to have all the clothing in one closet/room, esp. if it is near the washing machines.
