What Only 6 Inches Can do in a Sewing Room

From this
 Thank-you Mr. G for moving the 2 heavy cabinets and shelves over 6 inches, and putting together 2 IKEA storage units and table.
What a difference in work space it created!
The shelve with fabric and books were moved to the foyer where I could more easily reach and search. 
Moved the white shelve that originally was behind my machine.

Notice there is no table leg in the corner, so I can swivel in my chair right or left.
  I can easily set up my serger, or when the big machine is doing an embroidery job, I can move it to the right and set up the little sewing machine.
Because the white table was about 9 inches deeper, I had to move the oak top to the right.
Guess how much space I had?
Thought it was going to be exactly enough space, but Mr. G had to cut off a measly 1/4 inch!
But now it's all level surface and more space for computer.
I did regret losing my little person tutor space.
A little person could sit in this space, but the table went up about 3 inches which does make a difference.  An adult might be able to set up a machine here.
Wish I could get rid of cords, but distance of sockets won't allow.
Yes, just a few inches can change everything.
This isn't all the 6 inches changed.
See more later.

  9. Oh my goodness you have so much material - I'm envious. Its amazing what a little rearrange can do, well done.

  10. Looks much better. It is amazing how much just 6 inches makes and adding in a new cabinet. I like my sewing area but need to redo my desk space - after seeing this I might need to make a trip to Ikea.

  11. Those 6 inches made a lot of difference. It looks so much more spacious.

  12. What a great workroom. I can't help looking a bit enviously at your lovely coloured threads, and huge fabric store.

  15. Great way to organize the sewing room space. I always need tips there. Thanks for sharing at KIMIF linky party at FYI I'm going to change that linky to bi-weekly as I wasn't getting enough participation. :)--Shannon

  16. You have given me lots of ideas. I wish I had made pictures of all my various changes to where it is now. You are terrific. I like the idea of IKEA tables. Would have to part with my over 40 year conference table (sob, sob) but could get much more room and can reorganize some of the other smaller furniture items I have. Thanks. I will probably post one day. Emma Carpenter
