Hello and happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday!
Last week you saw I was in the middle of reorganizing my crafting space after the hubs finished a pair of new shelves for my room. I promised completion pics and here they are.
Just standing back and looking at all this neatness makes me smile.
Each of the two dozen photo boxes on the left ($1.66 each at Michaels) holds a particular kind of supply, or assorted components for a certain project. It’s so easy to just pull out the box with what’s needed.
The magazine holders on the right are wooden ones from Ikea which I covered with pretty papers. (K and Company’s Que Sera Sera Collection)
Those bottom two somewhat messy looking spaces will soon be covered by doors, hubby promises!
Always a sucker for cool organizers, I picked this up ages ago, only to discover there was nowhere in the room it would fit. Now it has a home. That tidy row of ribbons makes me very happy.
THIS has been a goal for quite some time: to eliminate all the stuff under, around and behind these baskets on the floor. This clear, empty space makes me even happier than the ribbons. Vacuuming is a breeze now, too. And hopefully finding dropped beads will be easier.
The only bummer is that under & around all that stuff is where I would chuck things I wanted to hide. So, gotta find new hiding places. You know, like for chocolate I don’t want to share.
It was nice to get the Sizzix tower up off the floor, but I didn’t care for the look of that large expanse of black plastic on the sides.
My solution? Cut foam core so it just pops into the spaces, then cover that with 1/8-inch cork sheets. Now I have two mini cork boards for tags & such.
To solve the problem of paintbrushes in a jar falling all over each other, I used tin snips to cut 1/2-inch hardware cloth the size of the top of the jar. This piece pops into the top of the ring. The jars were painted with chalk paint (one was tinted with white to make a different color, rather than buying two jars.) After the paint was dry a light sanding brings out the details.
Oh, and the workdesk today has a sewing project, another teaching sample for Joanne’s. I’ll take a pic when it’s done and share that soon.
