So....last Friday I decided it was time that my craft area had a major tidy up.... this is what it looked like before. Ouch!
Things were piled upon things upon things, if I tried to take something out, there was a good chance of an avalanche....
...and I couldn't close any of my drawers because they were so full, sigh.
So, I think you'll agree, that it needed a bit of work.
But I had no idea how MUCH work!
With Jay's help, we worked on the room solidly all last weekend. I got everything out, covering my work table, all the kitchen worktops, and the living room floor:
Jay put together a cool TV unit we found in Range that fitted the top of my Artbin cupboards perfectly:
And by the end of the weekend, I was gazing adoringly at the new unit (as yet unpopulated), and my beautifully colour sorted and not at all cluttered cardstock shelves :)
There was still a ton of work to be done, though, and so I spent at least 3 hours every night last week plodding on...
I sorted through every single drawer and unit, making sure none were over filled (local Freecylcing crafters will be in luck next week :)), and got everything labelled up to make it easy for me to find stuff going forward.
And well, without further ado, here is the end result, finally finished this evening.
I'm so chuffed with it!!!!
Well worth all the hours of hard slog, I just hope I can keep it this tidy :)
Look, all my drawers close :)
Now I am just itching to get in there and make stuff, I've not been able to do anything during the makeover as it was all in chaos.
