Well hello there Friends!!! betcha thought I had fallen off the face of the earth didn't ya? no..just busy organizing and day to day living..I purchased this amoire from a friend from church..her daughter just didn't like it (she used it for her clothes) and I loved it..got a great deal on it too..(it has all the knobs by the way)..
here is the inside of it..pull out drawers...I had a vision for this to put it in my craft room...I knew my space needed a good overhaul and reorganizing..it was looking like a tornado had come through and never got tidyed up..its been a couple of years since the last re-vamp..so it was time..I got tired of seeing the mess..(it was the only room that was starting to embarrass me..I know craft rooms are supposed to be messy..but I have OCD and like things in there place and love to be organized..I function better when it is..does anyone else have this same situation?
this room has taken me 3 days total of redoing it..still tweeking here and there..(always will) but it is done and ready to show to the world..here are the BEFORE photos..
that corner was really starting to bug me..well starting isn't the right word..it WAS really bugging me..
and the closet was getting to where I didn't want to step in for fear of getting lost and never making it back out again..never heard of anyone getting swallowed up by their craft closet..but I came close..lol..
oh this is the last photo of the clutter..are you ready for the AFTERS?
the wait is over..here are the AFTERS...can you tell a difference? I had to remove a shelf above where this cabinet sits now..but the contents are in the drawers now..
I love this little nook now..kind of prim cottagy..I noticed today while pinning..I love the cottage look mixed with a bit of primness to it..warm and cozy..I purchased a new lampshade in red for my lamp..:)
the butcher block stand moved to this corner of the room
I almost got rid of the stand that my sizzix dies are on..but they were too heavy for the drawers in the cabinet..so only the little dies went in the cabinet..they were a bit scattered..now all organized..
I purchased several clear bins to put in my fleece and wool and I took that big stand with all the fabric on it (see before photo above) I had 2 of them and they are stackable..so I already had the one in the closet and added 3 more shelves up on this one and now its almost to the ceiling with just fabric..catergorized by color and holidays..mostly halloween and christmas holidays..I moved stuff here and there and now I actually like this room again..moved stuff in the closet that I don't use a whole lot of etc..
that big bin on the floor is holding all of my crocheted items that I have been making..I have some cute stuff to share in my next blog entry..actually I have lots more to share in the next few days..hoping to blog something in the next couple of days...
the open shelves look a bit more tidy too..
I cleaned up my craft table too..I went through everything..
this stand with my wool on it was in the closet..its much smaller then those other ones..so now all my wool (well most of it is here)...I tell you it was everywhere..and it still is..but more more organized now.;)
last but not least..all the fabric I went through and no longer want..so in the next week or so I need to go through it and price it out to sell..I also have some patterns (no e-patterns) that I purchased and want to sell and I have magazines from mercantile gathering, a primitive place, country sampler to get rid of..and some crafting books too..oh it feels good to be organized once again..now its so clean I don't want to craft in it..well the weather is looking like it wants to be sunny..but the forcast is calling for rain this whole week..Hubby took Tucker to work today..so I am going to do the treadmill..Haven't been on that thing in months..but it will give me a better workout and raise my cardio..so its all good..then off to do some grocery shopping..I have 25 dollars in coupons from our store (albertsons) that will be free..oh you gotta love free..I haven't been on here much..I hope all is well with you all..Take care and thanks for stopping by and saying hi.;)
