I love the idea of using the older gray desk for a sewing surface. These type of desks were often used in government offices. They are super sturdy, but weigh a ton.

Erin Lang Norris added this to Houzz Tour: Comfortably Creative in Boston
This is where Amanda sews and does other projects. She recently opened a shop on Big Cartel called Quivver, where she sells her handmade decorative oak and leather arrows. When she's not sewing, creating or thrifting, she enjoys reading design blogs and magazines, and also getting together with her foodie friends.More: Visit a Restored Eichler on the San Francisco BaySee Inside an Historic Home in AustinA Joyous Home in Norway

A light that clamps on to a shelf reminds me of my Dad's tool workshop in our garage. He loved those clamps.
