One of the big reasons we bought our house is because of this space in the basement I could make into a quilting studio for me. I needed a work room and didn't want to set up my stuff in a bedroom because my girls do better with separate rooms. I set up temporarily in the unfinished family room in the basement and we got to work on this space that I wanted to make into a huge work room for me.
The space is a little bit over 15 feet by 20 feet!!
We got started on this the day after Christmas, we got a bunch of gift cards and went and bought the lumber so that my handy husband could get to work framing it.
I definitely wanted to insulate, and definitely the ceiling because both of my girls bedrooms are right above it and I do a lot of quilting at night after I put them to bed.
My quilting machine is set up on the window wall and my sewing area is over in the corner, I can set up the ironing board all of the time right behind me. I plan on making a design wall for that wall to the side. I am also going to paint that chair red and re-uphoster it. It is a very sturdy old chair and I want to make it part of my room forever.
And there it is! I love all of the space I have, I can lay at least 2 quilts out at a time on the floor. Or a quilt and a backing so I can cut batting. I had to put my favorite quilt up on the wall because it fits so well. I have ordered blinds and will make some curtains to go to the sides but for now I love the light and being able to see out to the front yard and everything.
Thanks for waiting and watching while we got this big project done!
