So my sewing corner has been LONG over due for a little sprucing! You know how it goes when you start accumulating fabric and sewing things, and you get comfortable just putting them wherever right? I wanted to start 2018 FRESH, and decided it was time to declutter, my clutter. I thought it would have been a little challenging to do this considering I share my space with the dining room and only had two corners and half a wall to work with (sidenote: I’m so not a fan of Craftsman Style homes!). But with a little planning and some awesome Ikea finds, I made it happen!
I’m pretty excited about it, so I thought why not share it in a blog post? Here’s the BEFORE and AFTER:
Pretty trippy right? Same space! WHOLE NEW FEEL! And this is probably the most clean it will ever be! (hahah!)
I thought maybe a few people might be interested in where I got everything so here’s a handy listing of all the NEW furniture and knick knacks: (ps. this is NOT a sponsored post)
1. IKEA: Trofast Frame & Trofast Storage Box – what I like most about this unit is that you can customize the size of the boxes you need.
2: IKEA: BILLY / OXBERG Bookcase with doors combination
3. IKEA: Skubbare Fabric Basket
4: IKEA: LINNMON/OLOV Table. The version linked has two drawer unit, but bought the model in store with just one drawer unit.
5. IKEA: ALEX Drawer Unit / Drop File Storage
6. IKEA: ADDE Chair
7. IKEA: DRÖNA Box
8. AMAZON: Stylemaster Elegance Voile Panel Curtains
9. IKEA: RANARP Wall/Clamp Spotlight with LED bulb
10 IKEA: FNISS Trash Can
11. AMAZON: Azar White Pegboard Room Organizer with hardware & accessories
12. IKEA: JANSJÖ LED work lamp
13. AMAZON: June Tailor 60 Spool Thread Rack
And just in case anyone was interested in what’s on my peg board:
C. SA Curve Rulers – I bought these waaaay before the color change
D: Marking Tools: Mark B Gone Double Sided Pen & Tailors Chalk
E. Fiskars Amplify Scissors: for cutting thick and heavy fabrics
G: Fiskars Scissors: for cutting regular fabrics
H. Craftgear Scissors: it was meant to be a fabric scissors but “someone” used it to cut paper, and so now its the paper scissors lol
J. Seam Rippers: Dritz: Blue & Clover: White
K. Pressing Ham
L. Hem Gauge
M. Wonder Clips & Glass Head Pins
N. Metal Washers used as pattern weights.
O. Oliso Iron
…..Annnnnd if you’re wondering whats on my sewing table:
Q. Serger: Baby Lock Imagine
R. Sewing Machine: Baby Lock Soprano
My most favorite part of my “new” sewing space is definitely the book shelf! I love that this unit came with glass doors, not only does it keep the dust and cooking smells away from my fabric, but its pretty nice to just walk by and see all my beautiful fabric and trims just neatly sitting there. [sidenote: I can almost guarantee about 98% of all that fabric is Michael Miller Fabrics! lol]
OH! And here it is with the LED Lights on! If you follow me on IG you already know about these, but if you’re just reading this post, my hubby thought it would be a cool idea to add LED lights to my table so it could “separate” the area from the dining room. lol. I love it! It looks even more amazing at night!
And that’s it for this post! I hope you’ve been able to find something helpful to spruce up your sewing area or maybe even some inspiration ESPECIALLY if you’re sharing your space like I am! Hopefully in a couple years I’ll be able to turn my two corners, one wall sewing space into an actual room with four walls and a door! lol Until then, I’ll be enjoying this new makeover! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I’ll talk to you soon! xoxo

Wonderful ideas, thank you for labeling everything for my reference. what is the size of this wall? I am going to have a 9’x9′ room and wonder how I can outfit it best.
Hi Jean, sorry for the late response! I couldn’t tell you what it was now…we moved to Minnesota in 2020 and now I have the whole basement to sew in lol
I love your room! so much light!
I have also IKEA furniture and they work wonders for my sewing room too.
Thank you Adriana! Ikea is the best!
What table is the one over the iron. It has telescopic legs.
I believe that is a drafting table Cindy. It was giving to me when a family member moved, so I don’t really have much info on it other than it can adjust….sorry!
