In just a few moments’ time, this little cabinet transforms into something to make any sewist’s heart go pitter pat.
The design of this cabinet is absolutely ingenious. Every single feature a sewist could possibly wish for is all here: plenty of workspace, with abundant room for a serger and a standard machine, plus a fold-down desk on the right-hand side that can function as a cutting area or a general work surface.
A handy slide-out drawer ensures my most-used tools are easily accessible…
I knew I needed an ergonomic, comfortable chair for this space, so I opted to purchase a standard rolling office chair to go with the desk. To give it some pizzazz, I outfitted it with a custom slipcover I sewed using some of my favorite Premier Fabrics.
I used iron-on letters from Hobby Lobby to add a monogram accent to the back of the slipcover…
…and I accented the back with four pretty black buttons. (Reality check: these puppies are attached with hot glue.)
…and inside the cabinet you’ll find my sewing supply command center! I outfitted the insides of the doors with chalkboard vinyl and cork tiles so that I can stay nice and organized.
On the top shelf I placed a lazy Susan with metal containers from the dollar section at Target. This is the perfect spot to store all of my most-used crafting tools and products.
My fabric is folded up on the second set of shelves…
…and the bottom shelf is home to all of my kiddos’ crafting supplies. I found this cleaning caddy to be the perfect solution for holding all of their markers, paints, scissors and the like.
