My craft room is now clean, tidy, and organised. I am so looking forward to getting in here and getting it messy again with lots of crafting.
This is the side of the room where most of the storage is.
The largest set of cupboards contain pretty much all of my scrapping stash and equipment. I didn’t quite get it all in though. Most of the cardstock has had to go under the desk that I’ll be scrapping on. At least it’ll be handy there.
I’ve disposed of the cardboard boxes that most things were hidden in and have bought clear plastic boxes, in various sizes, mostly from Poundstretcher. I can now see what stash I have, so hopefully it’ll get used now.
That one cardboard box at the bottom holds all my Basic Grey papers with dividers to keep it tidy. As it’s the best shape of storage for card, I didn’t replace it. There are two more like it under the desk, but that’s just plain card. All the fancy stuff and papers are on that bottom shelf and on the third shelf up with the chipboard. I have so much chipboard, that it’d take me a lifetime to use.
This is the other side of the room with my scrapping desk in the foreground, and the sewing area at the back. The scrapping desk is Sammie’s favourite spot when I’m in here so that may be a problem once I want to use it.
I’ve sorted out the four large storage boxes under there and now have all my yarn stash, plus other crocheting stuff, in one box. The others hold batting, cushion inners, more fabric plus other more bulky items.
Sammie seems quite impressed with that lovely clean floor. I’ve been on my hands and knees and have scrubbed every inch of it. I also cleaned the castors on all three chairs so the floor doesn’t get dirty again the moment I start rolling around the room.
I had a bit of a tidy of the photos and they’re now all in matching boxes and not all different tins, boxes and bags. All except for one box on the shelf with the photo albums, as I forgot to do that one. I can do that later though as the photos have only been roughly sorted and need a better going through, once I have a couple of weeks to spare.
All the scrapbook albums are tidy and in order now and I found space beneath them for current projects in scrapping, crocheting and cross stitch. I’m pleased with that. All the magazines and books are tidy now too, with space allowed for future issues of the two mags that I subscribe to. I’ve stored the dye-sub printer under the mags until I’ve used up all the cartridges and then I’ll have to scrap it as it’s now obsolete.
This is a view down to the other end of the room, where I keep paperwork etc.
This has taken me weeks and has involved pulling all the units out and cleaning behind them. I’ve cleaned inside the units, and out. Every bit of the room is now clean and tidy. I don’t think it’s looked this good since the day I moved into it.
It won’t stay this nice though. I’ve got the urge to play with my scrapping stash 🙂
