sewing room phase 2

I  grew very weary of not being in the sewing room, and mom needed her storage shed back. Sooo..... I moved in without the walls being finished. It is so nice to be able to sew again and just leave everything out.  Thought I would share some photos with you. Please look beyond or ignore the unfinished walls The room measures  11.5 X 10.5 so it is small.
 this is the fat quarter wall or walls.  I have a built in cutting table. It is so nice.
 I used two radius book shelves for the corner shelving. 
 The brown shelves are also corner radius shelves. I group them together with three of them horizontal to hold books and patterns. the other two I hung vertically to create shelving. All three tables are Life time tables. 
 The ironing board hangs behind the door out of the way and out of site. When I am sewing, I set it up in the hallway outside the sewing room.  Grandmas treadle sewing machine fits nicely between my two stacks of cubical shelving.
For this, I bought cube moduals. the cubes are 13X13, and I got them from Wayfair. There are 14 cubs in two stacks.  I bought laminated shelving to go between the two stack. This created a space for my tubs  (I store all my UFO's ,two inch strips, charm packs, and ten inch squares in them), and my TV monitor.
There is one extra cube next to the monitor that houses all my spool thread for my serger.  
 There are 21 more 13X13 cubicles. on this wall from floor to ceiling. This left a 12 inch gap. To utilize this space, I  put a close rod on top of the cubes, and hung my quilt tops up on hangers. Beneath that and on the opposite wall , I stacked my pattern boxes.
Below are three panoramic pics of the whole room.

Love it! I've been trying to figure out how to make the most of my 11.5 x 11 sewing room, it has a closed on one wall with bi-fold door I need to work around.
