Organizing My Mom’s Sewing Room
Last week I told you how I did some organizing for my mom back in January. I shared her knitting/crocheting storage room with you and I still plan to show you a few more spaces in her home as well.
This post is showcasing her recently organized sewing room:
It’s certainly nothing too fancy and was done on a low budget, but this room now packs a lot of organization, which is what this room needed. The black buckets were $1.00 at Target. They had a spider man logo on them and my dad spray painted them black.
If you’re looking for inexpensive ways to organize, peg boards are a great option! I’ve used them to organize my clients craft supply center, I’ve also created myself a gift wrap station with peg board. You can use them for so many different things. I have plans to do more with peg boards in the future.
The minute I walked into my mom’s sewing room I knew that peg board was exactly what she needed.
Check out the before photo’s:
and the NOW…
I love glass jars. If you read my blog often, then you know that I use them a lot.
The dresser holds all kinds of different supplies that my mom uses often…
separated in the drawers by dollar tree bins.
One of the dresser drawers holds patterns.
A rod was added to hang items that my mom is working on. She always has pants, dresses, gowns, etc. that she’s altering for customers. My mom is an amazing seamstress! I watch her work on gorgeous wedding gowns, pulling them apart to alter them and I get so nervous (I know I’d be scared to ruin them and not be able to fix them.) BUT she ALWAYS makes them better!! :)
Remember back in the knitting/crocheting storage room post, I told you that a lot of the material that was in the closet was moved into bins into my mom’s basement?
This is just a few of the bins.
She has many more bins in this room. She’s got a TON of material! She could probably open up her own fabric store pretty soon ;) lol!
The material is separated by type.
Batting and stuffing has it’s own bin as well.
Now for the before and after’s together of this updated sewing room:
That’s it, my mom’s sewing room now organized.
Come back soon to see her hall closet re-do. I turned it into a craft storage closet and it’s so much better than before.
Next week is the Spring into Organization Blogger Home Tour. You don't want to miss out!
May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,
