One item I created was a bulletin/marker board above my sewing machines. The bulletin/marker board is made out of an old cabinet door we had removed from our bathroom. I painted the door white and using the back of the door my husband mounted a metal dry erase board to the center. Then we used rolled cork to fill in the spaces on each side. This gives me two small bulletin boards and a magnetic marker board in the middle. I covered the edge of the marker board with ribbon to give it a more finished look and added buttons to the corners.
Next I glued four metal hooks to the bottom edge. This gives me a place to hang binder clips with notes and patterns attached. To finish the piece I added scrabble tiles to spell out IMAGINE and two small pink buttons on each end. The bulletin/marker board has proved to be very handy in the space above the machines. It holds all my notes and supply lists.
Another item I repurposed for my space was a couple of ugly lazy susans. I purchased three of them at a garage sale for .25 cents each. I used some left over contact paper from my classroom to cover the center of each one. I may at some point come back and paint or do something else to the edge, but for now I wanted something easy and functional. On one of the lazy susans I put my bobbin case and a few sewing items I like handy.
In my "dream" sewing/craft room I have ideas for many more accessory type pieces. Someday when my children move out I will take back a bedroom and be able to truly decorate my area. I am looking forward to that day but for now I am fairly pleased with the space I have. I am able to work in a part of my house that is not visible if someone drops by and I can leave a project out that is in the process. For years I worked on the dining room table so every time I wanted to make something I gathered all of my supplies, carried them to the table and then before going to bed I cleaned it all up again. So I am truly blessed to have an area that is mine.
Hopefully, you have a area that is just for you. It doesn't have to be a large space but there is a freedom in having your own space to create. I would love to hear your ideas and see pictures of your craft/sewing space.
