Sewing Center

Hi, Carol ask to see more pictures of my sewing center. My husband put this together for me back in 1993. WoW! We went to The Containter Store and bought the elfa storage units. I decided what depth of drawers I need to store different sewing items. Glenn attached a solid door to the 3 piece unit and I covered it in the silver ironing board fabric. Then I put my sewing machine on top of it and tried to sew. It put the machine too high so Glenn cut a piece out of the door and made a shelf for my machine to sit on. Now the machine bed is level with the ironing surface. I pull up my chair a sew. It has worked great for all of these years. I have to push the center drawer back when I want to use the knee lift. To the left of the machine I have a cutting board. This setup works great for me. A very nice compact unit. It is on wheels so I can move it around the room or house. Have a great weekend.
