There was definitely a bit more progress in there this week than last week, when NOTHING got accomplished.
**Before I start with the before and after pictures, I'd like to remind you of the warning I gave out yesterday about the nature of these photos. If you are prone to anxiety over lack of organization and neatness, please look away. This may be disturbing to many blog visitors. If you ARE interested in a better look at these images, you should be able to click on the photos to make them larger.
This week, I focused on the are where I do most of my work. In the first post about the redesign, I only showed you a bit of it. It looked something like this
Let me take you deeper into my realm and expose what those sections REALLY looked like and what I've done to improve them.
First is my craft desk. It started off in total and complete chaos.
These cubes of wire shelving are against the wall behind me when I work at my craft table. I store a ton of supplies, materials, and tools in and on this unit. Here's how it started off.
And, here's how it looks now. I'll admit that this section really isn't done either. I'd like to get some large containers (preferably decorative) to slip into each of the cubbies and hide the jumbled mess. However, another option I'm considering is a long dresser in place of the wire cubbies altogether. That way, all the mess is hidden inside drawers. I just have to find one. . .Like I said yesterday, the thrift stores are just not doing me right presently.
Next to the wire unit is a three-drawer plastic storage unit that was just PILED with miscellanea.
Now for the most drastic improvement.
This is my side table and yet another plastic drawer system. Both of these areas were simply exploding with materials.
Well, that's the latest tour of the changes in the craft room. I'm anxious to get it done so I can get back to creating rather than just sorting. Hopefully soon! I'm aware that since I cannot find the furniture pieces I desire, I might just have to hold off on the re-design for a little bit while I continue to search for the perfect accent pieces. At least there'll be some organization to it. Please bear with me as the search continues. I will have another update next week as I would like some opinions on paint colors for some items.
OH! A simple pair of earrings were placed in the shop this morning.

Have a fantastic weekend and remember to celebrate and honor your mother.
I plan on spending some special time with two of the most spectacular and strong women I know, my mother and my grandmother. I hope you get to do the same.
