Ever since I bought my sewing machine a little over a year ago, I’ve been using a sad little TV tray for my sewing setup. Yes… a TV tray. Wah wah.
I recently moved from a tiny apartment to a luxurious townhouse, and in the process, moved into a new bedroom with the most spectacular sewing nook in the universe. The angled walls create a picture-perfect alcove that screams “CREATIVE THINGS NEED TO HAPPEN HERE!”
It was immediately clear that a TV tray sewing setup would NOT do my sewing getaway any justice.
I’d like to introduce you to my new best friend: the HEMNES secretary desk from IKEA.
My love for this desk is threefold.
- One: The need for a new sewing oasis (Sorry, TV tray… this just isn’t going to work out)
- Two: A place to do my schoolwork for grad school (Studying: a necessary evil)
- Three: The desire for a neat and orderly bedroom… (i.e. – shove all my junk inside the desk and close it up. Secret messes.)
And as a bonus, this desk matches my already existing HEMNES bedroom set.
Yep. I might love this desk more than I love fabric softener.
Anyone need a sad and lonely TV tray?
