When we redid the boy’s bedroom (which reminds me – I haven’t posted pictures of that) my laundry room ended up having an extra little cubbyhole. I am thinking of turning this tiny little spot into a permanent sewing area. By small I mean it’s only about 2 1/2″ – 3′ wide but it has quite a bit of depth so I’ll use some of that space for storage.
Serenity really desires to learn to sew and I’m actually in the middle of writing up a unit study that we can do together that will cover learning to sew as well as some of the history & science of it all. I think it would be just great for us to have a permanent place to set up the machine so that our mess is out of the way and when we have a few extra minutes to sew we’ll be able to.
I saw this awesome craft room makeover and it inspired me to make my own pegboard to hold scissors and such. Mine would have to be quite small but I still think it could be useful. Be sure to check out Creating by Cami’s blog. She has a lot of great projects that will make you itch to get into sewing if you’re not already. And I promise you will be inspired by her craft room makeover.
I’m still browsing the internet to see other pegboard ideas. Click on any of the links to see some I’ve found.
Here’s one on Craftzine
One from Erin Compton Design
another one here at My Craft Room
still another one from Going’s on at the Glenn’s
and from Our Fixer Upper
and for the last pegboard picture… The Inspired Room (a really great blog)
You may want to show your husband this board so he’ll be able to understand why you want one for your crafting area.
Of course you’ll need to know how to hang your pegboard. Be sure to read this article to find out how.
If you’ve done one of these pegboards, please link so we can all see yours and be inspired.
