Hey guys, So I wanted to give you an update on how the house is going so far. I haven't talked about it in a while and so I thought I would talk about our miscellaneous room! So honestly this room is probably going to be the messiest room in the house but whatever, we have a lot of stuff and only one room left in the house for the stuff to go in haha. So this room is going to be our office mainly.and then our workout room. I just want to start off by showing you guys what the colors of the room are. We selected to do (and by we, I mean my mom mostly and then the rest of us) a navy blue feature wall with light pink walls. We have a lot of blue going on in the house and my mom thought it would be a good idea to do something a little different. And the reason I say my mom is because we kind of gave her this room to design since she helped us pay for the house. We let her have one room to design and I said she could pick any colors except red (that's her favorite color haha). I am not the biggest fan of the color red unless it's Christmas time. She selected to do pink and then came up with the idea of doing a navy blue feature wall. We already had the navy blue paint because we are going to be painting another feature wall navy blue in the house. I'm not going to tell you where incase I decide to do an inspiration post on that too. So technically this is supposed to be an inspiration but we didn't really come up with the colors until later. But now that we have the colors selected and the walls painted, it has definitely helped with finding inspiration for the rest of the room. Since my sister and I each have a desk, we both went on to Pinterest to try and find a design that we liked that included both desks being on the same wall. At our last house they were on opposite walls which was fine because we also didn't use this room as a workout room but now we are trying to combine all four types of rooms into one room so that way we can refrain from having a messy house. I hate clutter and I would rather have one room filled with a bunch of stuff versus a couple rooms throughout the house. Currently both desks are on the same wall right next to each other. They have an Ikea Alex drawer unit in the middle of them. We haven't even really started working the office. We got our internet hooked up in there and put a bunch of stuff in there and all of the workout equipment and that's basically it. I think it should come together nicely once we are actually able to get in there and work on making it look nice. We eventually want to find small file cabinets to stick on the end of the our desks just so we can have more storage and put away important documents. We currently uses file boxes and I don't think they look very pretty haha. I love this creative idea to put your wifi password (and I would probably include the name too unless it's really obvious) in a picture frame for your guests, especially considering how everyone has to pay so much for their data nowadays. I definitely wouldn't hang this one the wall or anything. I would probably place it on a nightstand or on a bookshelf. I want to get a small nightstand like the one below. I believe it's from Ikea and I think it is perfect because it has room for an outlet strip so inside so we can leave chargers for our guests incase they forget them. Or there will be plenty of room for them to charger their phone. We have a chair that looks very similar to this except it is navy blue. It's a pull-out couch (technically chair) but it pulls out to be a twin size bed. A twin size bed isn't really ideal for a guest room but so far we haven't really needed anything larger. We don't really get a lot of guests because most of the people we know already live here or were originally from here and they just stay with their parent's when they come to visit. Eventually we would like to be able to get a murphy bed that pulls down from the wall just because then we might be able to get a larger bed that can hold more guests. I also found these pillows and love the colors. I would love to find these pillows or something similar to place on the sleeper chair as decorations. I think that they would go perfectly with the colors of the room. So my goal for the closet is to turn it into a craft closet. Both my sister and I scrapbook and we also can sew. We also enjoy photography and so it would be nice to be able to store some of our equipment in there. I would like to be able to have a little table set up with the sewing machine on it inside the closet (like the 3rd image) so we don't really have to pull out the sewing machine anytime we need to sew something. My goal is to also have all of our scrapbook stuff very organized so we can scrapbook quicker and we don't waste time looking for something specific that we need. The workout equipment that we have so far include, a rowing machine and a mini stepper. My mom has already talked about giving us her treadmill because she never uses it anymore and she recently found a new exercise bike that she likes a lot more than the one she has so she has considered giving us her old one if she decides to buy a new one. Both my sister and I also have yoga mats that we sometimes prefer to workout on and we also have some hand weights. I want to get an exercise ball and some more dumbbells just so we each have set incase we want to workout together which we sometimes we do a YouTube exercise video together. If we actually consistently use the workout room then we might add more stuff as time goes on! We plan on mounting a TV on the wall so we can watch a YouTube workout video or watch TV while working out. We also plan to hang our degrees on the wall in front of our desks on each side of the window. We also have some other artwork that we plan to hang that should hopefully match the theme of the room. I also want to hang a mirror in the room because I feel like gyms/workout rooms always have mirrors in them. It might also be nice to hang a goal chart somewhere in the room so we can keep track of any goals that we may have such as personal and/or weight goals. I will keep you guys updated on what actually happens with the room and closet. Also, don't forget to check back to see what other room inspiration post I do next!

Since my last few sewing room organization posts, I've received a lot of email questions about my cutting table. So today I thought I'd walk you through the details! Here's the basics: The table measures 31" wide, 63" long, and 34" tall and is made from 2 Kallax shelf units from IKEA, with a desk top surface (also from IKEA) attached to the top. There are also locking wheels underneath to allow me to move the cutting table if I need to. The wheels also help to add a little height to the table which makes it a great height for cutting. This table is 34" tall, but if you're tall and need a taller table, you could use legs instead of wheels. IKEA sells legs of various sizes (such as these and these.) For the table top, you'll need a piece of wood that is at least 31" x 58". We found a desk top at IKEA that had the right measurements but you could also grab something from Home Depot or Lowe's. IKEA sells different inserts to use inside of the cubbies of the Kallax shelf systems. In this photo below you can see that I've added drawers, and one door for some different storage options. On the opposite side of the table, I use the shelves for books and magazines, and have added some fabric boxes (they come in some fun colors too!) to store yardage for quilt backs, works in progress, and orphan blocks. They basically work like nice, deep drawers. Other insert options would be these baskets, or these hanging wire baskets. The large cutting mat on the table is from Quilters Rule and measures 32" x 60" (total size) with grid lines for 28" x 56". The mat was slightly wider than the table so I had my handy brother in law trim about a half an inch off for me with his table saw. I wanted the cutting surface to cover the entire table top, but another option would be to have a cutting surface on half, and an ironing station on the other half of the table! Wouldn't that be handy? I sure love my table! I love how much storage it gives me and how versatile the storage is. I love that I can move it if I need to, and I have needed to move it more than I expected I would. The table a great size for my room - it did feel imposing at first and does take up quite a bit of space, but because of how much storage it gives me I don't know what I'd do without it! If you're limited on space you could make a similar unit using two of these smaller Kallax shelf units. Now for the details: Want to make your own? Here's what you'll need- 2 Kallax shelf units (IKEA) 1 wood surface / table top (IKEA or Home Depot) 1 sheet of plywood 27" x 54" (Home Depot) 4 swivel locking casters (Home Depot) 2 corner brackets (similar to this one) 2 straight brackets (similar to this one) screws, bolts and other fasteners Any inserts you'll need for the Kallax shelf unit (drawers, doors, baskets, etc) Build the two shelf units. Next, use the 2 straight brackets to bolt the shelf units together. We put the brackets on the inside of the shelves (on the top so it wouldn't get in the way of anything) - one on each end. You'll build the rest of the table upside down! Place table top, right side down onto the floor. Then place the two joined shelf units upside down onto the table top. Secure in place using the two corner brackets, one on each end. Next, set the plywood on top of the shelf units (which is actually the bottom) and decide where you'd like the casters. You'll first drill pilot holes for the bolts, and those pilot holes will go through both the plywood and the shelf units. (Our bolts were too long, but I don't mind - I just work around them. You could use bolts that are a shorter length so they don't stick up into the shelf as much.) Those bolts are what connects the shelf units to the plywood base and helps to stabilize and strengthen the entire unit. Once the casters are secured, flip the entire shelf unit over and you're ready to start filling it! You can add any Kallax inserts now, or use the cutting table for awhile before deciding just how you want to maximize the storage, and figuring out what works best for you. Leave any questions in the comments below and I'll do my best to answer them! We did make this cutting table several years ago so we're working from memory on some of these things.
