My Craft Room is DONE!!!
OH MY WORD!!! What a project! But it is FINISHED! It isn't perfect yet, but it is decluttered, organized and ready for me to get busy with Christmas sewing and projects! I will probably have to address this in a couple of posts as #1 I don't know how to compress the pictures to get more in here and #2 this is my procrastination project too!! I struggled with this room for a lot of reasons. I have WAY tooooooo much stuff. I still do. But now it is easier to see what I have and keep after it so that it doesn't grow and take over the room! There are a couple of things that I will change in time. One is the huge plastic organizer/drawer thing that I got from QVC... I don't think I really like it but I will give it a chance for awhile. I am ready to start sewing and working on crafts in my clean and organized room!!!!!!
Some notes about my craft room: This is a room off the workshop in our garage. It was used as an office by the people from whom we purchased our home. It has a concrete floor that is partially painted. I would like to paint the floor again and I would like to paint the walls a nice soft color but that will come in time. The shelves are nice to have but they are not adjustable. Someday I would like these replaced with inexpensive adjustable shelves. This would really make for great organizing! The "table" is built in. It does not go all the way up to the wall in some areas leaving a gapping hole as large as 6"! lol I don't know what was their thinking on that one. Eventually it would be nice to redo this area also. But it does make a great scrapbooking area. I am thinking that I would like to rearrange some of it so that I could use it for a fabric cutting area also. The wall that is blank above some of my storage containers will have a bulletin board.
