Organising my sewing room

Ever since moving into my new apartment (*cue song from Custard*) I have been trying to make it look all nice and pretty. Unfortunately I had an ongoing dilemma with some furniture, which has meant everything has looked half finished, and my progress has been hampered in completing 'the look'. Anyway, my furniture issue is now sorted (it's amazing how quickly things get done when you actually have time off work) and I have started working on my spare room. Initially this room had a single bed in it and my random sewing junk, but I have decided now to turn it into a dedicated study/sewing/craft room. First things first was to get a new table for the room, so off to ikea I went and this is what I got...

Now I am onto the fun task of tidying the sewing room. Hopefully I get it done by the end of the day. Here is the before shot...well, almost before. I did move some things before taking this, but you get the idea.

Lots of junk...
So now I need to get inspired to organise everything *sigh*

I don't think the bed is going to fit in there anymore, which is fine. It seems kinda silly to have the room being half filled by something that gets used by visitors maybe a few times a year. I do have a strategy, however, for when I do have guests. My parents have these pretty nifty blow up double beds, so that is what I will use instead. Otherwise, there is also the lounge, which is pretty comfy to sleep on (says the experienced arvo couch napper).

Oh, and this is my next project- stitching on these Prints Charming prints (you can buy the same print HERE if you like them).
Better get started on these
Back to craft room organising.....after lunch maybe
