Redone - Redone - Redone - Redone Sewing Room

I know most of us have sewing rooms that are works in progress, but this one has been a struggle.  I feel ashamed of myself, as I know many don't have this much room, and I didn't for many years, but in my last home I had a larger area and it was by itself, not the first thing you see as you come in from the front foyer.  We inherited the baby poop colored paint from the last people who owned the home, that should be a priority for myself, to paint a brighter more cheerful color.  My last redo usurped a little more area from the dining room, I wanted my quilting in a corner to help support the quilts, and my sewing machine facing so that I could see the TV.  Oh well, we don't use the dining room all that much.  This is officially a formal living room, but is now my sewing room.

It is also my office, you can see my desk.  The door is the door to the foyer.  The large dark cupboard I bought second hand after we moved in.  I needed the storage, and it is also a small not very effective design wall.  You can see the hooks on the front, and they extend around the sides.  There is a big window, but no overhead light, so the lighting isn't too excellent.  I'm still working on that.

This door goes into the family room, which is now our living room.  The rolling kitchen table behind the dog I also purchased since we moved in.  It is now my cutting table and extra storage.  I also have a small closet on the other side of the door, which is an under the stairs type.  I think even though I have much less fabric, etc., than many, maybe I have too much, as I have taken over that closet and also part of the laundry room for my sewing storage.

Another acquisition, this one was not a charge.  It is a nice dresser that I have turned into an ironing table, and again more storage.  The door is another view of the foyer door.  It is a single family private home, but there are locks as the upstairs can be a separate residence, it has a small kitchen, small living room, bathroom and 4 nice sized bedrooms.  My daughter, 2 of her kids and  2 of her grandchildren live up there.

Here is a view of my poor encroached upon dining room.
