I feel a wee bit slow in getting my craft room set up and organized. I know I showed you the photos of about half of it on this post. So here is the rest...warts and all.
You may recall my story of the soaring costs of getting in painters for the top two floors. So keeping to my miniscule budget, I used Craigslist again and also repurposed some pieces, to finish off this half.
Here are some shots of the inside of the closet. Sadly, I have to store DH's books in here. Luckily, the shelving unit I keep my punches and extra long border dies in, had a matching slim shelving unit...just the right size for paperbacks!
That is the door to the walk in closet that you see just to your left. Here is the view as you walk in to it. I managed to find another of the matching oak trimmed bookcases. It holds photo albums we got from DH's Dad. Lots of very old and very wonderful photos in there! As you can see, I have to share this bookcase with DH's books. Just after I took this photo, he went down to the basement to check out my progress here. Took one look and said he must have another box or two of hardcover books that he has not given me to shelve yet! Sound like he may be getting the whole bookcase space after all...lol
The blank bit of wall on the right is where I plan to hang a couple rows of 3M hooks for my ribbon rings. I have the ribbon on the ribbon ring tags and then have those tags on shower curtain rings...sorted by colour.
Just to the left, outside the walk in closet, there is a very ugly looking dresser and a hutch type topper that does not match at the moment. I hate the look of them at the moment, but they were free and will look fine once I take the time to paint them white. The dark dresser holds boxes of envelopes, card blanks, and assorted other odds and ends. My cricut, cricut supplies and cartridges all live on top of the dresser.
There is an alcove across from this dresser that will eventually hold my computer, printer, the cricut and gypsy...but for now, they have to live here. I need a table or countertop to set up the computer and have not found one as of yet. Well, not found one for free, that is!
Here is a snapshot of the alcove...with some assorted boxes of pictures that need to be hung, a few organizing containers, and other assorted junk!!! The closet door is at the left edge of the photo. The bookcases I showed you on my other scraproom post, are showing to the right side of the photo.
