What is the furniture I need for my sewing room? A Sewing machine table

What are the pieces of furniture I want for my sewing machine room?

❤ A big drop-in Sewing machine table,

❤ A table for my laptop and printer,

❤ A cutting table with large storage underneath,

❤ An ironing table, and

❤ A cabinet with lots of storage

What we need and what we want and what we get are almost always poles apart. Isn’t life unfair?.

And what I have is – My little sewing machine delegated to a corner table. I really need a bigger table. My cutting table is an ordinary table that has got some height after I slipped cut pieces of PVC pipes under the legs to elevate them so that I don’t strain my back. Then of course, there is my multipurpose dining table.  

I am a little handy with power tools ( I mean, I have them) and have made a bookshelf and a table (slightly imperfectly) before. A big Ana white fan here. With that arrogance, I have started searching for some plans for DIY sewing desks/cutting tables / pressing tables around the net for perfect sewing room tables.

These girls do give me a complex with their perfectly made sewing room furniture. Here are the 15 I found I want (all of them).
