In the cold of January, we needed to tackle an indoor project, and as Keren had lost her kitchen-table project space to meals-for-six space once we arrived, we turned the laundry room into a Sewing Room for her. Wall board replaced pegboard, walls were painted, and sturdy old desktops were bought on Craigslist. We made two work surfaces, one for sitting and sewing, the other for standing and working. The legs were buttressed, to allow for plenty of kick room and rolling chair movement.
Carpet has since been added, and it's a cozy and workable space, created on a very limited budget!
