This pretty sewing room was once a family room, but as the homeowner's sewing business expanded, so did her need for a cozy and organized work space. Now the room is a family-friendly space at one end of the room and a smart sewing space at the other. An oversize organic motif rug grounds the vintage chic family area.
This petite settee has a charming shape. A twin-size quilt (folded and tucked into place) and accent pillows add a splash of color. Get the Look: For a quick and inexpensive way to mimic wall paneling, paint the lower portion of your wall white, top with a chair rail, and insert vertical lattice boards.
Opposite the family space is the sewing nook, complete with a generous size work surface and surrounded by cabinetry. A creamy finish keeps the extensive cabinetry from being too heavy, and a few cherry finishes add unexpected contrast. The desk chair's casters move easily on low-profile carpet tiles.
A collection of vintage pincushions look sweet and charming when stacked on a pedestal.
This petite garbage can insert features divided bins -- perfect for sorting scraps to discard from those worthy of reusing in a future project.
Magazines are organized in metal bins with easy-to-make labels cut from magnetic ink-jet paper.
