Finally it is time to start moving all my supplies into the new craftspace. I have been rushing home from work everyday and bringing things in little by little. I have a lot of cleaning to do along the way as all my boxes got pretty dirty and beat up while being in storage. I just can't believe how fast it all came together. I have to give Paul most of the credit. I would say "I need" and he would say "No problem" He did an awesome job reworking shelving, running wires and making my new work space exactly like I wanted. Thanks Paul, you get the husband of the year award for sure!! So I really need to go back to the beginning and show you pics of a few things. Here is a picture of a shelving unit that I saw in the ABC Distributing Catalog. I loved it the minute I saw it.
Next I started to work on the paper storage. I have been trying to organize it in between opening up boxes and unpacking things. Here is a before and after picture of the Ikea Billy bookcases.
I didn't want any curtains in this room but the window moulding is shot. There are paint splatters all over so I thought I would add some curtains. I bought sheer curtain scarfs from the SwagsGalore website for $15.00 each. The panels were 40 X 216 inches. I had them draped and swaged and just didn't like it. So not to waste the fabrics or have them live in my linen closet I decided to run them across the top of the window and across the top of the closet. I cut them in half at the width and used 40 X 108 inches on each. All I did was hang cheap hook from Lowes, pulled the fabric through rubber bands, gave the fabric a twist and there you have it, my 2 treatments for $30.00. Here's the pictures:
Before I go here is my before and after picture of the room from the same angle. I just love how it is coming together.
Thanks as always for visiting and hopefully my next post will be a crafty one!
