Armoire and corner rack: My dad got me this big old armoire back when I was a teenager, and it works perfectly for storing projects waiting to be worked on. It's got a couple of rods going from front to back to hang things that need mending or altering. And space below for things I'm just starting on. Also a nice big mirror to try things on and check the fit. The corner rack holds decorative stuff, a clock, an aromatherapy diffuser, and a little radio so I can have music while I work.
Comfy chair: I moved one of the chairs from the living room into the sewing room so I have a nice comfortable place to sit and work on hand sewing, knitting, crocheting, and browsing through books and magazines. The old nightstand became an end table, and I found an old framed poster in the closet that I had way back when I lived in my first apartment that went with the other colors in the room.
