Every sewing room I have ever laid eyes on has been a big mess. To the person who owns the room, it looks exactly as it should, because they know where every pair of scissors, every piece of felt, and every bit of yarn and string is located.
Secretly, I think they are too freaked to even start cleaning up their mess. Most sewing rooms I have seen are small, with barely enough room to work, let alone a place to store all their crafting necessities. Everyone wishes they had a way to end the mess and become more organized.
user StephaniePrice had an issue with accessibility in her sewing
room too, so she decided to go to her local Lowe's and buy a pegboard. Her husband drew the tomato pincushion
on the pegboard, and she got happy with a jigsaw
. Several coats of primer, and red, black, and green paint for the tomato, completed her new board.
I think the pegboard
is a fantastic way to end the clutter in any room. If you decide to do this project, be sure to read through all the reader comments; Stephanie tells how she hung the pegboard and the vinyl "pins" on the wall, as well as how she removed any excess paint from the holes.
