Meaning, I always had to haul Toni out of her spot in the bathroom linen closet.
It's been kind of a pain, but I've made do. But I finally decided, and I won't lie--some silverfish in the bathroom linen closet helped me--to find Toni a new home.
I decided the bedroom was the best place to put her as we recently have some freed up space in there--but still not a lot of room.
I had been keeping my eyes on the curb on Fridays (big-trash-day eve), but everything I saw that fit the bill was wooden. I can't have wooden furniture in the bedroom anymore (maybe more on that later).
Scouring the internet I discovered the perfect solution--the typewriter table/stand*!
It's the perfect size for Toni (and honestly not that much smaller than the space on the kitchen table I was using before).
And when I'm done sewing, the eaves fold down and she can be tucked away into the "crafty corners" section of my bedroom out of the way.
First up on the agenda for my new tiny sewing space will probably be a cover for Ms. Toni.
*Specifically a "mid-century" typewriter table. I absolutely love the way people are referring to the 50s as "mid-century" now. Does this mean my parents are "mid-century" models? Ha ha!
