Hi all, remember me?
Gee it's been ages since I posted anything but I have been really busy with work around the house lately which meant no time for crafting.
Over the long weekend, last week, hubby & I worked very hard to give my craft room an extreme makeover. My room was formally Chloe's bedroom, now I mean no disrepect Chloe, but your fluro bright colour scheme just wasn't really me, LOL.
So we painted for days to change the bright green & yellow walls to a soft, gentle, creamy green colour.
We also laid some new flooring & painted the cupboard, with the shelves in it, white to match the rest of the furniture.
The door frame, door & window sill also got a lick of paint & I'm so thrilled with my new room now that I love spending time in there & can't wait to have lots of fun creating as it is so much more organised now too.
Actually it all started with me buying 2 little shelves to put on the wall. I said to hubby that maybe it would be a good idea to paint the walls first & well it kind of kept going from there. He's banned me from shopping because major projects always seem to happen after I buy something reasonably insignificant. I think he secretly enjoys it though, LOL.
So here are some pics of my new space.
This is my big table, it's actually 2 IKEA desks that hubby has joined together.
I have my sewing machine & Cricut set up on one side or if someone is working with me they can be moved aside. There's lots of room to spread out as I'm a very messy crafter.
In this photo you can see one of the little ol' shelves that caused the chaos.
I had the idea to put up some shelves & hang a rail beneath them. I bought some Clip It Up clips & now I can hang things up where they're much easier to get to without moving a heap of stuff to get to the one I want. This rail has my alpha stickers hanging from them.
The green drawer units hold stickers, diecuts & rub ons.
The cupboard underneath has slide out shelves & I keep my cardstock, in pizza box halves, sorted by colour.
Here is the other shelf. I took all my ribbons that were packaged on cards & have put each set into a zip lock bag & they hang from the rail with the clips.
I have more ribbons in jars beneath, with my Cropper Hopper paper storers next to them.
The wooden drawer unit holds my ink pads, embossing powder, acrylic blocks & glitter.
The corner shelves hold jars of flowers & buttons & some drawer organisers which I have little embellishments & brads in.
I still need to put up a rail to hang my punches from but for now I'm perfectly happy.
I've even made my first card in my new room & will be back later to post that after I take a photo.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a lovely weekend :)
