Moving My Craft Room.

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!

    Ohhh, I love the drawers and the light in your craft room!!! I def need more light and better storage in mine…although, crafting is in most rooms of my house! LOL

    First I must say I truly envy your craft room – I have a craft corner of the dinig table/sofa, a cupboard, a plastic chest of drawers and numerous bags and boxes scattered about the place! That said what you’ve done so far looks great and I can’t wait to see the rest of your new craft room 🙂 (even if I AM a wee bit jealous 😉 )
