In our old place, my "sewing room" was also the laundry room, my closet, and guest room COMBINED. To say it was not the most functional space would be an understatement, and there was NO STORAGE. You can check out a post of my previous sewing room update here.
However, the only thing I was able to do in my new sewing room was get a new cutting table (I had been using a folding table) and shelf from Ikea, as well as shelves on the walls. Its not pretty right now, but I have GRAND plans that include paint and a stencil from Royal Design Studio. In the meantime, I thought I would share inspiration photos that I've been pinning to my "Sewing Room Love" board on Pinterest.
Don't you just LOVE the shelves and the ribbon hanging station of this one? And, the sewing machine looks out the window, which is especially nice on long, sunny weekend days when I am in the sewing room!!

This photo below is probably a bit more realistic for how my sewing room will shape up - I just love thread displayed on the wall, as it leaves space on my sewing table for everything else - and believe me, there is a lot of "everything else" that usually finds its way on my sewing table! I just LOVE threads in color order, however, I doubt I'll ever get THAT organized for more than a day!
You cannot tell me that this chalkboard paint wall calendar doesn't just make you SWOON and wish you had it! I've been thinking about a way to organize all of my deadlines and projects and I think I've found it!
