Ready to Re-Stock - One Last "During"

Will I fit everything back in the treehouse? We'll soon know - the room is ready to re-stock, at last. The guest room is ready to receive final touches and house guests, as well. My Oldtimer did an amazing job of persevering through all the allen wrenches and MDF that is Ikea. My treehouse now has storage and work surfaces galore. One last look before I fill it up again with fabric, paint, thread, beads, glitter, and patterns:

Above - the west end, the former wall of shame.

Above, the east wall, the former inspiration wall. Note the large L-shaped desk, the credenza on the right, and the two floating shelves above the credenza.

Above - one end of the desk, showing the extra storage drawers and the window. I love that little wire drawer set.

Above - storage cubes all the way into the corner, with added drawers, bins, and doors.

Above - dining room sideboard or credenza, to be used as additional work surface and storage. The black boxes will store patterns.

Here are a few shots of the guest room as it looks right now. It's also ready to be re-populated, though the bed, blanket chest, and wardrobe have already been put into place. I hope to uncover the pillows for the bed soon.

Here's that same view I posted a couple days ago - no more Ikea boxes on the bed, and it DID all fit into the treehouse! If you look closely, you can see the difference between the two shades of green. The guest room is cooler, kind of a pale sage-y green, while the treehouse is warmer and brighter.

It looks wonderful, just make sure you don't spend all day just looking and admiring it. I'm afraid that is what I would do :) That and gently pat those shelves

Sue, I just love your new sewing room. I am soooo jealous!! I may need to make a few trips to IKEA myself.
I know you will make beautiful things there. Congrats.
