    Welcome to my Studio... picture heavy

    Well it's been a little over four months since I started on this project, but it's finally finished.

    (original thread) https://forum.missouriquiltco.com/sh...ad.php?t=76960

    All work was done by me with a some help from DH. So not being a carpenter, I'm pretty proud of myself! There are some ugly spots that we just had to accept as being what they are since we weren't hiring any pro's to help (would have had to gut the entire room to fix all the issues, and that wasn't happening )

    The ugly heater remains (for now), this is a long story in itself. But I have managed to "hide" it, (except for the stove pipe).

    Were the planning begins, and the flimsies that are ready for quilting are stored

    Made use of furniture I had on hand, and hid that ugly heater

    Rolling chair does not roll well on the rubber flooring, but solved that issue with a couple of bright chair mats - love my pink chair too! And love the rubber flooring, so easy to stand on for long periods of time, and cleans up so well.

    And the Piece De Resistance! Future spot for the Mid Arm & Frame. Will either install track lighting, or purchase the Grace light bar for this spot, as it is a dark corner.

              You did GOOD! What a nice, organized, spacious work area. I wish I could have such room, but I am satisfied with 2 rooms, one for cutting and piecing, and the other for quilting. It was a compromise I am willing to live with. Still getting it o r ganizec, but every time I start, I end up working on another project to and making more mess! One day it will happen. I promise.

                  What a wonderful space! You should be proud of it! How about painting the pipe? A quit design, barber shop pole or just the color of the wall?

                      You did an awesome job! So nice and organized. Do you have enough room on that side table though for ironing? Or, how were you planning to do that? Love the two tables put together for cutting!

                              I wondered who would notice the lack of an ironing station

                              I originally asked DH about removing the "desk" counter so I could put a big ironing station there (the existing counter is too low for ironing), but he was really against taking it out and having to repair the damage to the wall that certainly would have resulted from removal.

                              I have an ironing mat that I put on the cutting table for small ironing jobs (i.e. fat quarters and pieced blocks), you can see it propped up in the corner of one of the pictures, next to the iron. I actually was able to press a king size top recently on just that mat - not ideal, but it worked.

                              This weekend I bought a used ironing board from the thrift shop ($5) and am in the process of modifying it for when a larger surface would be more convenient. Similar to this:

                              https://www.instructables.com/id/How...d-Into-a-Quil/

                              When it's finished, I'll return the chair to the dining room, and put the drying rack (that's in front of the ugly heater) away, then the big ironing board will get set up there when I need it.
