sewing table

I just got home from our annual guild retreat and found that my husband had not only finished the sewing table he was making for me but he decorated it with a vase of tulips too! I’m feeling pretty lucky.  The table top is an old butcher-block top that was given to us.  He cut a hole in it to sink my machine, sanded it down and refinished it.  He also built the three sides of the desk using beadboard for the panels and painted it all.

He made a little shelf recessed to hold my machine with a hole for the cords in the back.  I had ordered a new chair before leaving which arrived and was assembled before I got home too.

My room has very, very little storage, primarily because I don’t have much of any wall space because three of the walls are windows.  So I have pretty much filled the inside of the desk with plastic boxes but it is all hidden from view which is great!

I’m looking forward to quilting my next quilt with my much more comfortable and ergonomic setup.  My shoulders and back will be appreciative.
