craft room update

Tuesday was a fairly productive day in getting things done, but it's still a ways off from being finished.  Here's a few photos to show you the progress:

I added some additional shelving to my wall:

...got rid of an entire bin of fabric I haven't used in a long time and
folded and color coordinated all of the fabrics I'm keeping.

I was able to pick up some pretty jars for storage from Goodwill the other night.  I'm looking for clear or milk glass.
I got my sewing area bit more tidy.  This spot wasn't too bad to begin with, I am just anxious to get a skirt on it to make it look better.

I haven't been able to clear off my work table yet, but once I get some more done in the storage department, it will be much better.  Here's the plan so you can see where I'm headed:

I went up to Portland today to return some stuff to Ikea, and while I was there I picked up some task lighting for over the work table area.  I'm excited about it.  Inexpensive, very modern, it will look really neat with everything else.  I also stopped in at Fabric Depot- my first job when we were newlyweds 19 years ago!- and got some super-de-duper cute shabby chic fabric.  It's in the wash now so I can get going on curtains and a table skirt!


A pegboard is on it's way.  I'm going to stop down at the bargain lumber yard and pick up a piece for cheap.  I have a frame that I'm not using anymore, so I'm going to paint it white and use it to frame out the pegboard.

Finally, I picked up this gun rack at GW for $3.99.  Can't wait to get it up and put it to use!  I'll show you soon what I plan to do with it!

Hope you are having a great day!  I'm off to work on the room!

  6. Your craft room is looking awsome - my FAVORITE thing in there right now is the red flower painting - I love it! Looks like you are having fun getting organizized - that's what my girls like to call it.
