From Readers: Christine's Sewing Corner Makeover

East Coast Fall Colors finalist Christine recently posted some photos of her craft corner makeover on her blog, Lavender and Limes. As many of our at-home decorating projects involve fair amounts of sewing, we found this of particular interest, especially for those of us with limited space.

The genius here is the use of over-door storage for supplies, which extends and defines the space significantly. Christine says:

"I had tons of ribbon, yarn, beads and fabric, as well as pins, needles and bobbins that needed an organized home. To create storage for yarn and fabric, I hung a canvas shoe rack on the back of the bedroom door. The pockets are great for storing everything from knitting needles to fabric scraps. Also, when I open the door, it automatically hides the rack! For smaller items, I purchased two magnetic spice racks from The Container Store and drilled them to the wall, underneath the ribbon board. These are filled with bobbins, ribbon remnants and beads. For storing thread, I bought a tailors rack, which sits behind my sewing machine and keeps all of my threads from getting tangled and jumbled!"
