I've been reading this thread, and loving all the storage solutions people are coming up with, but I've haven't joined in.
I've been ill for the past month though, nothing too serious, but it sapped any motivation for cleaning (not that I ever have much) and also crafting.
The crafting motivation returned before the cleaning one has.
So a month of illness, plus 2 weeks annual leave, plus a lot of crafting, has left me with a mess.
This is our dining room, honest, there is a table under there.
The worst bit is that we have a kitchen/dining room, so I can't even shut the door on this mess. I do keep hoovering an sweeping around it though.
Even the floor is a mess, the plastic bag is for rubbish, but I obviously keep missing bits.

Eventually I want to put a floor to ceiling cupboard in the corner for storing things like the ironingboard, mops etc. Then I want a proper counter top across the rest of the back wall (I sit next to a fridge and tumble dryer) Finish painting the drawers and putting the Smarties plastic on them, fasten them to the wall and have proper space to work. Also paint, I Hate that pink, it was there when we moved in and other areas have had priority.
Unfortunatly all these plans need DIY skills which I lack, thankfully my Dad is ace, so when we've finished other bits of the house this will get done.
For now I just want things put away. I'd like to see my dining table again.
This has absolutly nothing to do with the fact my parents are coming to do some more work on Friday Honest!
