I was so concerned about the fabric shelves being too tall for this low-ceiling room, that I emptied one and with Dave's help, brought it up and placed it. Yay! It fit! So I emptied the rest and had him help me carry up the remaining three shelves. For the rest of the morning I climbed the stairs with armloads of fabric and filled up all but two spaces, condensing as I go.
That was about 24 trips. I was dripping by the time I was done.
It feels so much better knowing where I will be putting the tables and design wall now.
The wall with the two quilts will be my design wall, 8 feet wide by 7 feet tall. (I'll have to cut my current one down a few inches). The bed, chair, ottoman and tv table will be outta there and in the adjacent room. And that pink cloth topped table will be where my sewing table goes, under the window.
Against the railing will be my white cutting table, (or clutter collecting table, really). It's about 6 inches wider than that upright beam, but close enough to fit the space.
In the center of the room will be my workstation, and that helped me designate where the new lighting will be placed. This is the really important decision for me. I must have good light for designing, sewing and photography which this room lacks, for now.
|Cutting table, covered with painting supplies.|
|Where I sew now, to be moved soon.|
|Workstation or pressing table|
And my wall o'wool will have to find a new home too, perhaps in the new walk-in closet.
So now, I pretty much know how to fill my new smaller space, to make it work for me. I'll be happy as a clam in the new sewing loft!
