There are alot of pics.... I am proud of myself.
So Finally I finished my craft/ computer/ guest room! It's an average sized room with a huge purpose. I completely decluttered (4 lg garbage bags and a "do you want this?" fest.)
The sudden need to "fix" the room was brought on by some friends coming to stay for the weekend, we decided to get a futon and house them in this room,then I gave the room a critical look and said to myself "they'll think I am crazy."
and with no help from the man (except for the lugging things out of the apartment kind of help) this is what I came up with:
This would be the main craft part of the room, notice the chord coming from behind the table I affixed one of those command chord things back there so now I don't have to dig behind the table every time I sew!
Here are some closeups
I used 30 count boxes (I work in a music store CDs come 30ct boxes) and taped them together and collaged them, the put various small supplies into empty tea canisters,that I painted.
this is the canisters on there sides and stacked they hold colored pencils, crayons and whatnot.
and the cork board that I painted a island scene on, and have emergency sewing supplies tacked to.
Then the inside of the sewing cart.
and the first closet, its one of those sliding door ones this side has a drawer thing holding my fabric stash and a book dump (like at the bookstore) that holds my yarn stash... the other side has a filing cabinet, yep I put a filing cabinet in the closet!
here is a futonless wall,
this is the other closet it has blue container that holds my finished projects, a shelf with books and boxes of stationary and "memory stuff" and a shelf dedicated to kitchen stuff we use once a year.
notice there are handbags hanging from the door!
the most genious thing I came up with was that I got a three hole punch and unbound all my mags and whatnot, even the sewing machine manual, and filed them in binders, making it easier to see what I have and it helps that all those clip art books that I have no purpose for aren't always falling all over me!
then the computer part of the room!
So now our guests are going to mistakenly think I am organized, it's a joke I like to play on my friends.
I only wish I had before photos.
more completed craft rooms they are inspirational, or at least they were for me!http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182055.0http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155821.0http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187483.0http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177343.msg1835360#msg1835360http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186723.0
