Minimalist? Certainly not! It’s not even in my vocabulary! Yet ,as I made the decision to move my craft room ,I sort of wished I was one. No chance.
So, the major effort began….and it’s not over yet.
When I first moved into my original craft room, I picked my favourite room in the house…it’s all sloping ceilings and quaint windows and up on the attic level. Then, I realised how impractical it was. It’s so quaint that with all my ‘stuff’ in there, there wasn’t room to swing a cat. (not that I have one, or would wish to swing one either.) So, I have had to drag what I need downstairs to the kitchen table and then it takes a superhuman effort to take it back (3 floors).
It got me thinking that my son, who lives nearby, doesn’t need his room. You save the children’s rooms forever in case it upsets them, don’t you? But, he actually helped me start moving the craft stuff yesterday into his old, enormous room. It’s so big that I could even have two more Ikea shelf units in there. There’s room for a table so I can do every thing in one room …bliss! People have been admiring the painted drawers. They came completely free from my local post office when it moved to smaller premises. Right place, right time!
If you turn up at my door, please knock VERY LOUDLY because I’ll be three floors up fripperising things!!!
It’s not finished yet, a bit of a work in progress……but from the photos you can see how bad it was, and you can see the one tidy corner I’ve created so far. Long may it last!
