Thread Shed.....New Floor....DONE!

Day 4


I put all of the textile painting supplies back in their cupboard...

My supplies have outgrown the cupboard

but it will do for now.

Everything was unloaded from every cupboard

 in here, so we could move them across

 the room as we put down the new floor:

This is a neat old kitchen cupboard....quite vintage.

It holds a lot of supplies...

The doors close up and the clutter is gone.

This is an old armoir that was my son's baby dresser.

I refinished it for him 27 years ago

It also holds a lot of supplies, but hides the clutter.

3pm.....hauling tote boxes out to the store room.

I want to make a skirt for the table in the center of the room.

I need to store my sewing machines under there, 

and a skirt will hide them.

The Big Board is all set up...

Big Board    65 x 30 inches

Brad built it for me 10 years ago.

5pm......I swept the floor.....here is the Grand Tour:

Right side of room....

Storage Cupboards, Cutting Table, Bookshelf

Gunnr's bed is back under the sewing machine....he snores a lot!

Cutting Table 2 across from the sewing table...

Media Cabinet, 8 foot Design Wall and Sweet Sixteen Machine

Thread Shed.......20 x 16 Feet

2 days to lay the wood flooring

2 days to put everything back in place

I will spend a lot of happy hours here this winter!
