Donna's craft area
Regardless of configuration, sewing area will need its own light source(s).
Corner configuration has space for machine and work area
Longer, wider shelf in the midst of 'regular' shelves might make sense for sewing/workspace.
Maybe wainscoting could tie in with bathroom? Keep sewing area closer to bedroom space than family room space?
Separate alcove for actual sewing table; storage could be elsewhere but closeby.
