FACT. I’m thrilled about our little one whose arrival can’t come quickly enough.
FACT. I already love our little one more than sewing.
FACT. Our house is small. Just under 1,000 square feet, two bedrooms.
FACT. One ENTIRE bedroom, is filled to the brim with my sewing/crafting stuff. Machine(s), glue, fabric, thread, paper, scissors, notions, pins, stickers, gift wrap, patterns, on & on & on & on.
FACT. Small children whom you love should not co-exist among such chaos. They bring their own baby-friendly chaos.
FACT. I need to sew.
FACT. My husband is the bomb diggity.
FACT. He turned this discontinued HEMNES wardrobe from IKEA into a lovely, totally functional sewing closet.
FACT. I’m not mourning the loss of an entire sewing room…cause look at this thing!
Before: After:Features I love:
Matt added a pull out table (which a chair fits perfectly under) and drop down desk to fill the gap behind, so I never have to unplug-replug things, and there is space to spread out.
Matt also added a shelf for our printer. That printer gets a lot of use. I print several recipes a week, not to mention the odd pattern, photo or receipt. I was bound and determined to have our printer set up so it was ready to go…always. He left a small gap behind the shelf for the cord to drop down, and drilled a hole at the base for an extension cord to seamlessly connect everything.
FACT. Big freaking deal. I’m blessed to have a kitchen table to use and blessed to be starting a family.
FACT. Getting rid of things and keeping only what you actually need feels fantastic .
