Warning: Lots of pics, and lots of rambling/details
I decided the other day that I hated having to go upstairs when I wanted to use the sewing machine...so...1 new bookcase and much manuvering later, I have my perfect bed/craft room!
View as you walk into the room. And, going around to the left...
My sewing table, complete with a WIP. The desk was mine from when I was little that I salvaged from the basement. The green tin holds my pins. The purple corked bowl holds change. And there's my senior plate with candles.
The left drawer holds seam rippers, cutters, etc. The right top drawer holds yarn. The middle drawer holds my mom's cross stitch projects. The bottom drawer holds patterns.
Underneath is the sewing box where I store thread and needles...and half of my polyfill stash.
My everything book case....details:
At the very top are sports memorabelia and my grad cap.
First shelf holds all my favorite books...and my candy stash.
Second shelf holds all my teaching stuff. Standards/methods/phonics books, unit plans, worksheets, etc. As well as my box of nail polish and pirate collection.
Next shelf holds perfume and lotion boxes, jewelry box, sunglasses.
Next one holds my scrapbooking stuff (in the tan and green boxes), finished albums, and my great great aunt's costume jewelry
Last shelf holds my concert box, programs from various concerts/shows...albums in progress, markers and my burned CD binder.
In the corner is a coat rack that I use to hold my purses and hats. The frames on the floor are going to be hung as soon as I can find a hammer.
My tv stand. Holds my cable box, dvd player, playstation, stereo...1/2 of my DVD collection. My make up is in the photo boxes on the bottom shelf sorted by use.
The other half of my DVD collection is in the carboard box (behind the tv tray). The tv tray is where I cut fabric and scrapbook.
My bed. Its a futon that I folded out then smushed a queen matress on top. (please excuse the crazy amount of pillows I have).
Nightstand and lamp from which I hang my scarves. Top drawer holds journals and cord box. Bottom drawers holds school supplies.
Computer desk. The shelves hold my Maine rock and bottle collections..and all my little trinkets.
1/2 of my huge closet (yes...I colorcode my closet). The first 2 shelves of the bookcase are used as my 'dresser'. The last little shelf is for shoes that I wear alot.
I cleared out the shelf at the top and that's where I put all my crafting stuff. Details:
The tan boxes holds my fabric and clothes to be reconned. My idea binder, needlework book. My fabric paints are in the photo box and the maroon box holds random things that don't really go anywhere else.
My baby. My CD tower. The jewelry is that which I wear alot...so...instead of digging through my jewelry box, I toss it on the stand. I also hang random things off of it. Right now its fairy wings, my grad cord, leis, and the blow up paw from a basketball game a year ago.
The pillow on the floor is my puppy's bed. She sleeps in my room now that she can't go up stairs anymore
And that is it! Its a bit....overstuffed.
...but I love it.
PS...sorry about those pics near the end, I don't know why they didn't rotate correctly...
