Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday once again!
mess desk is one I’ve been looking forward to showing you for a while now. When we moved into this house I did mostly quilting, so I took the large empty wall on one side of my sewing room, covered it with white flannel and used it as my quilt design wall.
It saw a LOT of use. (That’s it on the right.)
Fast forward 16 years and I only make the occasional quilt (still trying to complete a bunch of unfinished tops, though.) The areas under & around my table and along the wall have filled with stuff and I decided that space would be better put to use with a couple of bookcases.
My first plan was to pick up two cheapies at Ikea, but hubby offered to custom make what I needed so that it would fit exactly what I wanted. He designs & builds custom cabinetry for a living and he does it well, so who am I to turn him down?
The downside to this plan is that I could have had those Ikea bookshelves up and running over two years ago. The up side is that these are made to my exact specifications. (Like a space that perfectly fits the press, lower right.) Definitely worth the wait.
So, my workdesk this work is just a pile of mess that shows me in a frenzy of tossing, figuring & rearranging. Check back next week and I’ll show it all sorted.
