Looking for ideas is easy in the days of internet and Pinterest.
The back of a door is a great place to add a design wall feature. Just look at this one. Love, love, love it. These are samples displayed in a quilt store.

Keep a Happy Heart
Holy Cow Sewists, I am having a bit of a time. First, I spent some hours getting familiar with the differences between my Babylock Unity and the new Babylock Destiny. While there are many similarities, the Destiny has enhanced everything. Everything. I have sewn on the machine at many events and particularly like the size, it is large. It has a great "solid" feel to it. However, in my studio, size is a problem. You've seen the pictures, so you understand. Now when I have the machine set up with the extension table we are good on the large Ikea desk but manipulating the extension off and putting the embroidery unit on, we are wrestling people. Down for the count.
So clearly, I have some major re-arranging to do. There goes another day without sewing but if I don't have the set up correct I cannot work. Drives me nuts. The organized clutter is a fact of life. I know where everything is. Now, I must change it all up again. I need to have my work-box at hand. (this holds my tools such as a hemostat, pens, tweezers, marking pens, bobbins, bobbin thread, screw drivers etc.) I need to have all those seldom used but necessary parts in one place. (specialty feet for the machine, the two spool thread rack, special markers for embroidery, templates etc.)
I want to come up with a door display like the one above. I did have something similar several years ago, now I have to remember where I put the bulletin boards.....................
The Ovation serger and the Embellisher are now on the IKEA desk.
