My new sewing room

One of the reasons I have not been sewing lately is that we've been getting our house ready to move into. Here is my new sewing room! I have been in the basement for so long it's been strange to try and figure out what to do with an actual room, and I've been having fun decorating it. Let's face it: I had a hard time decorating an unfinished basement...I may have creative genes, but I never put them towards making the basement nice looking...

So here is my room! It's about 15 x 13 with a small bathroom and small walk-in closet, which I'm going to use for storing lots of stuff in. I'm going to put shelves on the walls, and I've got curtains on the windows, and it's starting to come together! I have always liked a Georgian style, so that is the overall look I'm going for, even while I'm not being authentic. :D

but anyway, this is what I've got so far, and some pictures of putting it together. Two good friends who are excellent wood workers helped me or I'd never been able to do it so nicely.
