Extreme Home Makeover – Sewing Corner Edition

Here’s a transformation that took place around here this week. My little sewing area used to be pretty nice I thought, but now it’s even better. We got the bookcase at Ikea, land of Swedish meatballs and affordable home goods. I got a few baskets, and presto chango….

And perhaps the biggest improvement of all….

It was an awesome deal negotiated while we were at the quilt show. 

 

And finally, I need ideas for a wall hanging for over the shorter bookcase.  I bought a small rod for hanging something just for this space.  I’m thinking a more free-form piece, but I thought I’d ask you all what you’ve seen that you think might look good here.

    i think something freeform would be nice over there above the smaller shelf.
    but i am also getting addicted to doll quilt walls. i think everyone should have one in their house. :D
