Dining Room Turned Black and White Craft Room

A friend of mine had a dining room space that she didn't use much, so she converted it into a stunning black and white craft room! She added French doors to close off her space from the living room and added a large sewing table, a really cool vintage card catalog for storage, a desk and beautiful black and white accents. I am trying to figure out what do do with my home's living room (which only holds two toy chests and a piano), but I am not sure I could be this bold! My home has the same layout as hers -- a combo living room/dining room is the first room to be entered in the home. (Except her space is slightly larger than mine.)

    Where can I find a card catalog? I would love one of these.

    I also deeply envy the card catalogue... and I rarely see them at auctions or other venues! This room is really sharp! It all depends what sort of creative endeavours you get into, though. My one wish is for a table that folds from small to large for yards of fabric, and also has some kind of lift mechanism - like a barbers chair - that goes from the floor to shoulder height for painting furniture. Also, one of those Welsh coal mining ponies for pulling projects in and out of my basement would be good, but... That's just NOT going to happen! ;-)

      There is a table, just as you wish for, right now, it's $300, see it at hsn.com. HSN calls it a "transforming table", item #549-963. Was recent "today's special, w/free ship. Note: when Table is fully open, there are exposed metal hinges on the top of table, so it would not be totally smooth for fabric. Table comes in colors, metal "x" type legs. Table slides from very low to high. Take a look.

    You can find card catalogs or something similar at antique stores but they are very pricey.
