Nearing Completion

Still got a lot to do.

I'm thinking of polystyrene tiles on that back wall, but we've got to be careful as the "brick" bit behind the sewing machine is the chimney.  We can't drill in to it and it gets fairly hot in winter.

Perhaps shelves instead on the left hand side.

We're going to try and find a table the same height for a cutting table.  It will go across at a right angle.

Also what is required is an office chair on wheels!

The ironing board will stay put.  Need to exercise those legs!

Perhaps a blind over that window.  It gets very hot and bright in the summer.

Now I really

IS it a velux type ?? if so We had great outside blinds from Leyroy's they stopped the heat/sun in the summer, the inside blinds just darken it rather than bounce the heat back out
great looking space, I'm cutting my lounge in half for a 2m by 3.5m sewing area, lots of nice natural light for yours :O)

This is fantastic - a room you can call your very own. I think I would prefer shelves, have quite a few in my sewing room. You could also put a notice/peg board there or maybe a small wall hanging.Keep us updated.

What a great space and I love the natural light. I love my chair on wheels. I wish I had one of those with the mesh. The one I have is left over from my teaching days.

It is a great feeling having 'a room of one's own'! Def need a blind - even an exterior (electric) one - you need to keep the heat out as well as the winter cold out - nothing worse than a freezing blast down your neck when you are working.
You can never have too many shelves, add as many as poss right from the start! Also a design wall is important.
What size is the space? And I love thet sleigh bed - I miss the lovely antique one I had which I foolishly passed to step daughter just before my ex walked. :(
Have fun in your new studio!

Look at this link on a lovely chair that has been made in to a totally ace sewing room chair!
Thought of you as soon as I saw it!
