Storage Closet Converted

I had my sights set on using the storage closet beneath the staircase for my sewing room. I think the fact that sewing is new to me, and the idea of not really wanting to put the machine out in the open really helped me justify the storage closet as my location. The fact of the matter is, the only real items being stored were a few extra comforters to be used when guests are on the sofa sleeper. I figured why not???

As I began sorting things out in the storage closet, I realized two things, I wasn't really using the space for much at all and I was really on to something by declaring the space my own.

Here is the sewing desk, a few pictures for inspiration and my machine all set it their proper spaces in my newly declared sewing room.

(I am not the best at taking pictures) 

these are adorable pictures (or at least I think so) I purchased them from Big Lots 

The storage closet is the perfect size for me to learn to sew and have some piece and quiet.

You have the perfect little space set up to do your sewing in. I love it! You could have fun with the space and really personalize it, if you like. Maybe stencil one wall or paint some stripes! The existing bar would be great to store fabric or patterns. Have fun!!!

Brandi - Thank you! I am soo excited about the space, I agree I can do more with it and add a more personal fun touch. I am just excited about the fact that no one had a tantrum about the space being just for me LOL! I think the bar will be such a help in organizing fabrics and helping me keep clutter off the floor. My first project is actually your rosette pillow. I hope it comes out right.
