My sewing room in Texas had a full piece of pegboard on a wall and I loved it.
That photo was taken not long after the sewing room was completed. The pegboard ended up almost completely full.
Here, I don’t have a wall where I can put a piece of pegboard. Today when I was sewing, I started looking for some pins, that would have been on my pegboard. I got up, and was looking around to see where I could have a piece of peboard put up but there just isn’t a spot. Every square inch of wall is being used. If ever I get all the boxes unpacked and moved out, I will have a bit of space in the middle of the room and I might could pull two of the shelf units away from the wall and put them back to back in the middle of the room but I’m not sure I want to do that. I’m thinking more of putting myself a comfy chair for stitching, a lamp and all the things I need.
Don’t take this the wrong way but . . Vince stays upstairs all the time if he’s not outside working. That means I can’t listen to my music and any time I get up, he says “Where you going?” Any time I get a text, he says “Who was that?” Any time I start to make a phone call, he says “Who you calling?” I need a little time to myself. Really . . I’m glad he’s here; I’m glad we get along so well but . . I wouldn’t mind being able to stitch downstairs and upstairs. I think he would spend more time downstairs if I was downstairs. Probably the biggest reason . . it is so much cooler down there during the summer.
Back to the pegboard . . as I was looking around the room trying to think what I could do, I noticed the way the shelves are made and thought maybe the “pegs” would fit in there. They do!
Six shelf units in there give me a lot of places to hang things! Boots never bothered the stuff hanging in Texas but I can see how it might be a lot more appealing here since he can get on the shelves, behind the stuff hanging, and play with it. I’m hoping to get the fabric stacked up to where he can’t get behind the stuff on the pegs.
We’ll see how much is still on the pegs in the morning.
I do have to buy more pegs. A lot of the ones I had in Texas have little short “prongs” and only the ones with the longer prongs will catch on these shelves but I made a good start towards getting things loaded on there.
