However, this week as I was trying to do some work at the kitchen table (read: fold out table from Costco) I started thinking about how I wanted to set up my sewing room when I get it going.
It's a complicated room as it has the task of fulfilling many roles: spare room, sewing room, and my workspace for writing. It will be the room that can sing, dance, AND act. It's not a huge room. Just a normal size. So I've been planning where I will put all my furniture.
This normally means I would map it all out on a piece of grid paper and then cut out tiny grid paper furniture and move them all around. (I used to get mocked for this, but then those same mockers asked me to do it for their rooms. So ha!) However, this time, I found an app for that.
The Urban Barn room planner. It's my dream come true. (No, they aren't sponsoring me, but I do heart them.) Now, I do kind of miss my little pieces of paper and the hands on approach, but I think The Guy is happy he doesn't have a miniature couch stuck to his foot this time.

Here is the room layout as far as I have figured out. The wall and door aren't quite right and the two swingy doors leads into the closet. Everything is already in our storage and waiting to be placed.
Except the desk.
The desk needs to be versatile as well. A desk for writing, research, and sewing. One that is clutter free but has lots of space for when I need clutter. Something streamlined and clean, but with storage options for a tidy look.
Of course I headed to Pinterest and set up a Sewing Room board for inspiration. My first bit of vision came from Ordinary Mom's office. It's clean and sleek and pretty. (Though, she says it's only like that for the pictures, but I think that's just so I will still like her.)

I also looked at a desk made at the base of a bunch of interworking shelving. I like that idea too.

In all reality, I have at least 6 months before I get to this stage. That means writing while hanging out on my sofa using a TV tray as a work station. Until then, I will plan and redecorate in my head so I don't lose my mind!
