Sewing Room Wishes

This past summer I re-did our guest house, at least the small bedroom and bathroom. I hadn't done this room yet. You can read about the re-do of those rooms  here .
As I was saying yesterday, the office works great as an office but it's too small for crafting/sewing. Hubby gave me the green light to make the large room in our guest house my craft/sewing room. So I'm going to show you the room I hope to update in all it's present glory. It's definitely become a catch-all room. So I'll be getting rid of several pieces and painting and bringing in pieces that will facilitate my creativity I hope. It's a fairly large room at 12x15. It's long and narrow. I'll be changing the green to a soft white. The funky thing about painting this room is that it will have to be done in stages. There's no other place to put the stuff that's staying, so I'll have to shift, paint, shift, paint until it's done. We have no garage as a good hunk of it went to the guest house. It's more a glorified laundry/storage area. No problem until I want to do a project like this. 
Both of these bookcases will be moving. The one on the left to another corner and the other out of the room. The door leads to the bathroom.
 I think I want the one with all shelves for my fabric stash. I have quite a bit of fabric so I also hope to weed that down to fit just into this bookcase. I believe I'll put a desk and shelves in this corner.
The bed will be going into this corner. I'm going to swap out this bed for the one in my front bedroom in the house. It doesn't have a head/foot board to work around. That way a guest can still stay in here.
 I think I'll put the fabric bookcase in this corner. Goodbye painting.
 The computer armoire and curio cabinet will be exiting this room also. So will all the stuff. I hope to put a set of short bookcases along this wall on the right for storing supplies. I'm going to float a folding table in the middle of the room to work on for scrapbooking and sewing for now. The armoire is covering the third window. 
 This room gets a lot of great light. I can't wait to claim it. I'm so excited. See lot's to do.
I'm not complaining mind you. I'm thrilled that I have this space that I can use. Not everyone is so lucky. So enough said. I'm off to Lowe's to purchase paint. Valspar Woodrow Wilson Linen I believe. Sigh... have a great week. I'll be busy.

This looks like a great space with great potential. I'm working on finishing a cabinet I turned into a sewing cabinet. I hope to post it in a couple of days. I'd love to have a room like this to put it in. Mine is going in a guest room that's already pretty full!!! Can't wait to see yours finished...
