After a massive move, I am trying to get my sewing room organized and I could definitely use some help.

I have two standard vintage oak and iron Singer treadle sewing machine cabinets which will hold vintage Singer sewing machines inside. I have an oak vintage Singer parlor sewing machine cabinet which will hold my mother's old 1950s Nelco sewing machine.

I plan on putting all three SM cabinets on the window wall of a guest bedroom. On top of the cabinets I will put my Elna SU pink top and blue top SMs. The top of the parlor cabinet will hold my Pfaff 1473 CD SM. Wall hung lamps will light the two sewing cabinets on either side of the parlor cabinet, which due to the window will not have separate lighting. Two wall mounted 60 spool capacity thread racks will store my thread.

The white wicker daybed is on the long wall flanked on one side by the small cabinet my dad made in H.S. and an antique oak low chest. Another wall hung light will be over the chest.

A comfortable adjustable office chair will serve all three sewing cabinets.

The on the next wall is a tall antique oak chest and an antique oak bookcase.

In front of the daybed, acting as a coffee table will be my Mom's oak linen chest.

Most of my fabrics will fit into the closet, with a few having to be stored underneath the daybed.

I have a large wooden expanding sewing box and a smaller matching sewing box. The large one will hold most of my sewing tools, with the exception of my sewing scissors which will be in a large Gardenway Kitchen Carousel. The small sewing box will hold my rug braiding equipment.

I have an old wood ironing board, and I know I will need a folding cutting table.

What do you think I am forgetting? What should I store in the chest and the cabinet flanking the daybed?

Is my plan workable? Help me!

A word of caution: if you use the treadles to set a machine on top of them, make sure your chair is high enough to comfortably reach them. They tend to make machines a lot higher then is comfortable, for me at least.
