My sewing room is coming along! Today, an incredibly rainy and gusty day, two young men who I don't think have ever moved much furniture in their lives, removed the couch, loveseat, and bookcase from my home. Woo!
It was a comedy of errors really, with guy B saying "this just hasn't been our day" when they turned the sofa on its side and the bed popped out, bending some vital piece of metal which prohibited the bed from going back inside the sofa. The den door had to be taken off its hinges to remove the loveseat. They were running behind on jobs.
At one point, guy B was asking me if I was getting new furniture. I told him I've always hated that couch, I've had it for almost 10 years, it's time for it to go. He said, "wait, do you mind telling me how old you are?" I asked him how old he thought I was. He thought this was my first place out of college or something. Later he told me he asked guy A how old he thought I was, and he said 23. Why yes, they both got a tip.
Anyway, after 40 minutes, they were on their way and my Hals were vacuuming places they've never vacuumed before!
Tonight I put the table together. I had to use a drill to make the holes large enough for the screws to easily be screwed in. Then I had a hard time getting the table upright...until I decided to remove one of the legs and attach it with the table "standing" on three legs. It worked! I have already cut out a pajama top for the SPR stash contest. It was really really nice to cut out the fabric at the proper height! I am also using just one cutting mat so I can move it around. The table is more narrow than my dining room table, so that is really nice too. I don't have to lean over.
The den this morning:
The dressform I have yet to buy will go where the bookcase was:
They stopped before driving off so I took this picture
Wow, the room seems a lot larger now
My table, with fabric!!
