Okay, so for the full effect, here’s the UGLY of the craft room before the task of cleaning and organizing it. It looks different already because everything has by now been picked up and most things have found places. The book shelf and the shelves on the wall still need lots of organization work as they are still a real mess as does the inside of the wardrobe but so much progress has been made!!! I really worked hard on this the other day…. all day…. now I’m ready to buy the new furniture…………. tonight or tomorrow!!! I’m so excited. That means my sewing machine will move upstairs and my serger will have a permanent spot and a little bit down the line, I’ll actually get a cutting table that’s at proper cutting height (around 36″).
So just for the embarrassing fun of it, here are the before pictures…………….. totally insanely messy. I won’t show off the closet (that’s actually not messy) because it was organized into my yarn and fibre closet months ago. I’m showing these so that the “after” pictures will have more impact. LOL. -))
So here you are. Terrible. The room had become a dumping ground and I was working on digging it out for months, probably years. I’m still working with the concept of storage and how to improve it. Part of me is saying that less is more and I don’t need all the stuff I have accumulated. However, only with proper storage will I be able to keep it organized. Staying tidy is a tough job for me. A really tough job.
Hopefully by the end of the weekend, I’ll have something else to show. Something much more fun looking.
