Gosh, it is 4 days later and I am yet to tell you about the rest of the furniture re-arrangements. You see, I have been too busy actually doing things to write about it.
I had already removed the storage boxes before I took this photo. I had earmarked this storage unit for my sewing room once the TV cabinet was restored and in place (see previous post).
Here it is in the new location in the corner of my sewing room. Not completely organised but a vast improvement on what things were like before.
This meant that I could permanently re-home a couple of my other storage solutions from the sewing room. A set of plastic drawers that I originally had for paperwork and documents when I was in a different job. It was re-purposed for the sewing a few years ago.
Now it has been emptied and has gone to a neighbour who was keen to have some more portable storage.
This small white chest of drawers was also used to store fabric and craft supplies. I bought it a few years ago from Gumtree and painted the bare chipboard with gloss white paint. Thanks to the wonders of Facebook it now has a new home not far from us.
The sewing room more strealined but still needs more work. Most of the other rooms in the house have been decluttered, simplified and generally remain as they should be but the sewing room seems to be the one spot that regularly defeats me. I have works in progress, things I have yet to start and general chaos but one day it will be sorted and mean that it is easier to actually sew rather than tidying. I live in hope and anticipation!
I managed to completely re-organize my sewing room a year or so back, and it has transformed my sewing experience. Just walking into the room when it was newly done gave me boundless energy and creative ideas. Don’t give up; it’s worth it!
Glad to hear your sewing room is working for you. I know mine will one day. I am edging closer to that day!
