I am so happy to have more organization in my crafting space now!
First off- it all started with the living room. We both wanted a space to put our computers in here, since we kind of live in this room.
This was the Living Room before:
|2 large bookcases on either side of our TV stand (with all our Xmas cards we received hanging).|
|Slightly low view from the couch.|
And here is the living room after:
|Yes- that is Grey's Anatomy- my HUSBAND's favorite show. (Not mine- I prefer more sci-fi fantasy shows).|
|Now all the computers have a spot.|
|More lighting on this side of the room now...|
|View from my hubs' seat by his computer.|
We removed our big 2 bookcases from the living room and moved them upstairs into our spare bedroom/my craft room. This gave me a boat-load of more storage space. I also removed my one drawing table that is broken, and shifted the "sewing space" to where my Cricut was on a mini tv cart. The Cricut is now underneath, since I tend to use it on the floor anyways, when I do use it. I removed the metal rack I had in here (its out in the shed now) so the room really has so much more storage. The desk was moved to the corner, and overall re-arrangement of furniture. I also went through a LOT that was in the closet- throwing out 2 huge garbage bags full of junk. Luckily I had picked up a bunch of red bins from the dollar store in my first attempt at fixing this room up and finally got to use them all!
Craft room Before:
Craft Room/Spare Bedroom After:
|Don't mind the Chandelier sitting on top of the bookcase. lol. Things are still a little chaoic and mis-matched furniture, but there is SOOO much more room to walk around now.|
|Now there is much easier access to the sewing machine and other craft equipment.|
|So much more organization!|
|Paper rack and closet-hidden.|
|Yay for easier access to the tools I ACTUALLY use next to my craft table.|
|The Futon setup (and I came across a 2 drawing and a caricature I did when I used to work at Dorney Park (the 3 center ones on the wall) and 2 caricature that old co-workers drew of me (the black and white on the left, and the one on the far right).|
|It's another spare bed or reading chill spot (and display of my nutcracker collection.)|
Next on the order of operations for the DIY home projects- turning our shed:
... into a man cave.
My dreams are to continue fixing up the patio to be a more livable chill spot, but hubs is set on the shed fix up first. We shall see what is in our budget- because I refuse to give up our winter trip for a bar shed.
First things first though- the snow needs to melt. Haha.
Anyways, Have a great day!
