Back around 2015, I got a job at Silk Mountain creations. It's a drapery workroom, and I had so much fun seeing all the sewing techniques and tools that were totally new to me, but completely normal for the home decor/soft furnishings industry. Hands down, my favorite new tools were the tables we used. They were big, on wheels, countertop height, rulers along the sides, pinnable, ironable, and had a ton of storage underneath. The best part? They were DIY. One of the owners of the business had actually built them, and I got to help recover one of them while I was an employee.
It was such a great way to work, that I would sometimes come in after hours to use the set up for my own sewing. A lot of the branding photos I use are actually flat lays I set up using these tables, like this one below.
After working at Silk Mt for a length of time, I decided that once I had the space, I was going to build myself one of these tables. And now that I DO have a room for my sewing, it is time!

A super fun project that has been in the works over the last few months is my sewing studio! My little sewing room is coming together, especially with the addition of my pegboard wall.
I knew that in such a small room, storage was going to be one of the big challenges. I decided to tackle this challenge with a two pronged attack. First, I don't keep fabric in my sewing room (it's all sorted into storage bins in the basement), and second, I use as much vertical space as possible.
After drooling over several other sewist's pegboard walls, I couldn't resist going all out and making an entire wall of my studio into pegboard storage.
After some white paint and several calls to my dad for mounting advice (Thank you dad!) I now have a gorgeous way to display (and organize) all my tools.
