Organised At Last

My craft room used to look like this...

Now it looks like this....


A bit different don't you think!  The big cabinet is wonderful, full of fab storage boxes with lids, that is what has made all the difference.  The shelving units I had before were quite deep and I used cardboard boxes to keep most things in.  The plastic drawer units I had just looked a mess and took up a lot of room.

First we cleared the room out, everything was stored in my sitting room downstairs.  Then Graham spent two days assembling the cabinet (the two side shelf parts close and make doors to the cabinet, I forgot to take a picture).  Next was the really difficult part, what to keep and what to get rid of.  Altogether this rationalising took a week.  Now I have the most amazing craft room.  I am very happy.

Ann, hi how are you!? That storage unit is amazing...I wish I had the space for something like that for my art supplies...well actually I have the space but I paint and draw in my kitchen because of the washable flooring! And since I want all of my supplies to hand then there's no room! :) I must say your space is creatively exciting!!!
