Closet Turned Sewing Space

I know the blog postings have been sparse, but I blame that on the winter. You just can't spend as much quality time spray painting as you can in the warmer months. I have managed to complete one pretty big project this winter though.

A couple weeks ago I was browsing other blogs and found one on small space make-overs. I was inspired. I have been wanting a sewing/craft space but didn't want to take over the 3rd bedroom for it. I decided our bigger than necessary guest room closet would be the perfect space to make mine. That night I found an absolutely gorgeous vintage desk on Craigslist to go with the $7 chair I found at Restore during the summer. I added a peg board, shoe rack for material, recovered the chair (I plan on painting it Heirloom White once it gets warmer out), and some decorations crafted with my sis-in-law. Add a Reveal light bulb and I have a new space all my own! It came together at the perfect time because for the next year I'll be participating in a quilting bee. for all of our junk, that should have been thrown out or in the garage.


I changed out the knob with one I got at Anthropologie


I thought it would be an ingenious idea to use a shoe holder for all of my material scraps.


  1. That is SUPER!

    Good job.

  2. GREAT little sewing space! Those guest room closets tend to attract clutter anyway -- your use of space is so (sew??) much better!

  3. WOW that is amazing and it looks great! Love the peg board!!! I just bought some for my sewing room too.
