A couple of weeks ago, my beloved sewing chair broke. I hope I’m not the only person who has an unnatural attachment to their sewing room chair, but I was so upset! I’d had the chair for years, and it was so comfortable-I loved it. But, things happen, and it broke unfixably. In comes my knight in shining armor, my handy husband.
Many of you probably know of Ana White’s website, Knock Off Wood. She posts amazing plans for all sorts of wooden goodies you can build yourself, and breaks it down so that anyone can follow them and come out with something awesome. I pointed hubby to her site, and we poked around and found this bench:
I wanted it longer than this particular bench though, so it would stretch in front of all 3 of my machines that way I can just slide back and forth in between them. Handy hubby to the rescue, changed the dimension, added another support, and here’s the final product:
It works exactly like I had in mind, allowing me to slide between the machines as needed, as well as sit on the end while working with my embroidery machine. He had an idea to paint my company logo across the bench, but I worry that would be a little past either of our painting capabilities.
Anyone else have a slightly “odd” seat for their sewing area?
