So first I have to remove a bunch of stuff that doesn't work anymore which includes a huge console TV and two "readers" for those with visual impairment. They are like personal overhead projectors and we never got them to work. They belonged to my Uncle Robert who had similar eye problems to my dad but by the time we got him my dad's vision was so far gone they wouldn't have helped and they needed work. So I figured I could take those to Rev. Richard Hanson to fix at the Church Mouse and the TV I guess will go to the curb. I need a new light fixture because there is no overhead lighting. And I think I have an extra light fixture I bought for going over the sink before I realized Pat intended to put in cans above it. I also spied another big 8 foot table at the office I might bring over to put the sewing machine and serger on. Or there was a small desk there as well. Now if I could just find my sewing machine pedal. I hope it's in one of our storage lockers because I can't find one cheaper than $70. Ame Nguyen also brought me her mom's (who passed a few years ago) old Kenmore sewing machine. But it's needing a bobbin case. Karen Korem gave me her recently her mom's serger. Her mom also passed in the last 6 weeks. So this space is really about bringing together stuff that came from those that passed before us and creating something special.
So it's not just a craft room, it's a coming together of a space and machines that belonged to people we loved and loved us and have left. I hope I can do it justice. Oh and I have no money for this project so I'm scrounging for as much stuff as I can. I just thought it's a B&B room, bequeathed and bestowed.
Wouldn't this be perfect?
Since I can't afford however such lovely cabinets at this point this looks closer to reality.
Looks like I could put a long shelf (tons of these at office) over a couple shelving units. Yes that ought to work for now!
So now to go measure the room, take before pictures and haul stuff out!
