(I was torn wether to put this in the home decorating forum but it is less home design and more CRAFTY!!)
We just moved into a new house. I have a new sewing/crafting area. So now I need to design it.
Ok, here is what the room looks like:
Yah, I'm in a mostly unfinished basement. Yah, pant and what not will come. and, yah, I'm still unpacking.
I have made some decisions-Along the wall to the left with the window(1st pict) will be a 'craft table'- It will make an L with the current table (with the sewing machines on it.) The right wall (2nd pict) will have a window cut out of it because my husbands office is on the other side- then we can communicate with each other while we work.
As you can see I have lots of buckets and drawers of stuff. I have a number of shoebox sized buckets (close to thirty!) that hold craft supplies- thread, ribbon, paints, etc. I was imagining building shelves and putting them on the wall with the window, above the 'craft table'.
I think the back wall will be all fabric storage. Now HERE is where I need some opinions/help.
I currently have lots of fabric stored in those plastic drawers. They rock. Thet are huge. They stand alone. I CAN NO LONGER FIND THEM A_N_Y_W_H_E_R_E. It leaves me with a choice. Keep em or get rid of em? I contemplate putting my fibery things in the drawers and putting all the fabric into buckets (and building shelves for said buckets- I hate stacking buckets- the one you need id ALWAYS at the bottom). Or just get rid of them all together and bucket and shelve everything.
Yes, things stay in buckets. Rather not run the risk of water, rodents, dust, or ofspring getting in my stash...
So kep the drawers or get rid of them?
Or does anyone have any other brilliant ideas?
At some point I will also get an island cutting table. Once the room is organized.
