Um ... it got a little better (kinda) in 2014, as I purged some of the stuff .
|Poor Billy the Snowman. I would leave him out in the room but he freaks out my dogs and|
I am afraid I would come home to twigs and fluff!
The white cubbies were once part of my creative corner makeover. Honestly- it was so cramped I gave up on using it. But now THIS is more along the lines of what I had envisioned. The worktop (the sewing machine is sitting on) came from Ikea for $0.75. It was a piece of something it has holes from screws/ pegs but I don't care. I attached it to the repurposed laminate shelf with L brackets. It is a super-snug fit. I don't think even if I had measured it, would the fit be as perfect, haha. The foot stool slides in when not in use, but there is room to sit as well.
|And when the curtains are closed, my cat Sam-Sam curls up on the footstool. |
He has claimed his perfect napping spot!
There is plenty of room for fabrics, notions and what-nots. For larger sewing or craft projects I have a folding table can be easily retrieved for use. It isn't over the top or magazine worthy, but this demonstrates creative solutions when faced with limited space and budget constraints.
