It has taken me a week to pull just about everything out of this room and to clean, sort and declutter.
But I have finished.
The wonderful Garden Gnome put up shelves above my desk so that I could have a clear workspace for study and creating and he also put together a flat pack cupboard to get my fabric out of containers that were all over the place and into some semblence of order.
I have folded and sorted every fabric by colour.
All of my lace doilies for use in crafting now have their own container and ribbons, laces and trims now have their own boxes.I can find things now!!
The top shelf in the wardrobe has been cleared. Some has gone into storage in the garage and some will be going to charity or to my mother for her markets. My books have been culled and so has my papercraft stash. What I couldn’t bear to part with has now been stowed on the top shelf of the wardrobe because after all, once a paper-crafter always a paper-crafter.
Of course the Diva has her nose out of joint because a lot of her hidey-holes are now gone (and she has been chased from the top of the desk whilst trying to get to the shelving) but I’m sure she’ll get used to it.
This room has been a thorn in my side for some time now and finally I have conquered it. It took a week’s worth of baby steps but hey, progress is progress right?
Unfortunately now that the GG can see exactly how much fabric I have, it makes it a little difficult to justify any new purchases lol.
And now for some of the ‘after’ photos.
I would say that this has been a week well spent. Next task for me is tackling the book cases and cupboards in the back room and then the linen closet! 🙂
Have a great Saturday everyone.
