So, I had gone through all this trouble to make a craft room
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195365.msg2062199#msg2062199

and all that hard work and sweat and cussing and tears I let it get to this:




it was so cluttered and messy I couldnt even work in there, so I was working on stuff in the dinning room, which was turning into a huge mess. So I broke down this weekend and got it cleaned up. Here it is:



I bought that large cabinet from my work (every few months they sell off miss furniture and stuff, I got that for $15). Now I still have to find a way to organize my fabric (it is all in the tub in the corner).

My mess beats all of yours... and its not even my craft room. Blech... Ive done absolutely nothing all day... should have been cleaning. But its SO much of a project, it really is terrifying... I dont even know where to start... I suppose with the baskets of laundry that need to be put away, and the TONS of dirty clothing that need to be washed... if I got rid of the clothing on my floor, that would be half of the mess. I really need to do this... I got a brand new amazing serger and sewing/embroidery machine for the holidays that I havent been able to play with yet, because theres no place to put any of it...

It sounds like you own to much clothing to make good use of. I would suggest washing all of it. And as you are putting it away decide what to keep and what to give away. A good rule to go by is, if it is not special occasion wear (dress clothing) or seasonal and you have not worn it in 6 months then donate it. Also, if it is seasonal and you did not wear it last season (excluding things like snow stuff and it didn't snow) then donate that too.

Woo just bought a house!! More clothing then I can handle is my problem too so as I go I am either deciding if I can recon anything or send it away..... though my recon pile is getting bigger Tongue

I'll be so happy when I finally have my own space in a house to work with!!!!

Holy Crap, this thread is still going! Well the "craft room" in my new place is a shambles, since there is a new Mr.Khantastic in my life, and we are both Artists. I shudder to imagine what is going to happen to that space!

Here's my mess.  This is where I actually craft.
 
But wait!!  There's more!  Storage of excess supplies:



And my craft area, slightly cleaner and more workable:


I'm slowly working on it...

My brother moved out a couple of years ago so I kind of took over his old bedroom and used it as my crafting room. Well he's going to be moving back in REALLY soon so I need to convert my messy messy bedroom into my sewing room/bedroom quick! Here lemme show you...

I have to move all this crafty stuff...

This one is kinda dark, sorry  Undecided





into this messy place...




Can I do it? I have no freaking idea, but I'm going to try! Someone mentioned that it was like Hobby Lobby threw up in their room... well Jo-Anns threw up in mine, lol  Grin

Probably the best way to do this (if your closet is big enough) is to spend one (or two) days boxing up all the stuff you don't need *right this minute* and putting it in the closet.  You're going to need to make some choices about which things you want to have out, and which things can be stored and pulled out.  Can't tell from here, but you might be able to fit your sewing machine table between your dresser and the door or under the window.

Will your brother let you store anything at all in his room?  Depending on how long he's staying, and how much stuff he's moving back, he may have some extra space in his room. Of course, if he has a whole apartment of furniture that he's trying to move in (like my sister did when she moved back in), it's not going to be pretty. 

Good luck!

Well right now, every nook and cranny of bedroom is just full of stuff, including my closet. I was thinking I could just do like they do on TLC's Clean Sweep. Where they just take everything out of the rooms and sort into "keep", "toss" and "sell" piles. That way I can just get rid of stuff I don't need right then and there. And then while everything is out of my room, I'll prolly paint it. Yeah I intended to put my sewing machine table right underneath my window so I could open the window on a nice day and have a breeze coming through. I just have to think where I'm going to store all of my fabric. I have a MASSIVE amount of fabric in storage right now that needs to be sorted through.

My brother isn't a materialistic person so he won't be moving a lot of stuff back but I don't want to have to ask him if I can store stuff in his room because I don't want to have that much stuff, ya know?
