With guests on the way, I knew I had to transform my sewing room (aka, The Clubhouse) back into a guest room. These are some of the tricks I used to make the switch as smooth as possible.
1) We sold the bed last summer, so our guests knew to expect an air mattress.
4) The sewing furniture I use was relocated here from my parents's house. It has a door and drop-in piece to conceal the opening for your knees and feet and the space for the sewing machine.
6) Rulers hang on 3M hooks under the desk.
7) Bins can hide your WIPs.
8) Keeping small projects on trays prevents losing pieces, and the trays can be stacked away.
9) Generally try to clear away clutter before your guests arrive.
10) Sewing-related decor can still look nice in a guest room.
The Clubhouse worked well as a guest room for this little adventure, but I'm glad to be moving back in!
Does your sewing room have to serve dual purposes? Do you use any of these tricks or have some to share? I'd love to know!
I love your little sewing and guest room! Where did you get that table? Its perfect for a cutting space, but it folds up and out of the way, when not in use. LOVE IT!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I got the table at Hancock's in the fall. I don't see this table on their website, but their search interface is kind of lame. This one is particleboard with a blonde veneer. They had wheels I could buy for it, but I opted not to. I thought about getting a gate leg dining table from Ikea or Crate and Barrel, but in the end the height of this particleboard table made all the difference.Delete
My sewing room is an Office/Sewing Room, very small. I use my dining room table to cut fabric and as my "design wall".ReplyDelete
Our guest room is my seeing room. Technically i habe a sewing closet. I habe a desk with my machine on it and closet swrater hangers and dresser for fabric and wips. I need a design wall and have to cut in the kiychen. I lovr my little closet thoughReplyDelete
