It has been SEVEN WEEKS! Go-Go Kim and I have been overhauling our craft rooms for SEVEN WEEKS! I’ve been seeing some folx progress on instagram and others have left me some great tips on how they keep organized. These last few weeks though I’ve been so focused on working on this huge Craft Room Overhaul undertaking I’ve been a bit MIA from things. I have followed our outline pretty well … I have to admit I did the books in complete random order. I have no idea why but that spot was stressing me out and I avoided as long as possible. Now that it’s done I have no idea what I was so nervous about!
Before I talk about the final steps of this whole overhaul feel free to look back on where we started:
- Craft Room Overhaul
- Patterns & Books
- Fabric – Oh Scrap!
- Fabric – All that Yardage
- Fabric – Other
Now that I have gone through EVERYTHING – every cupboard, every piece of fabric, every shelf, every tote, every nook and cranny – it is time to get everything all put back together.
I had to find a spot for all the random fat quarters of fabric that I found in those final days of sorting.
My thread stash is overflowing – but it’s in rainbow order so that’s all that really matters.
Get all those bins of scraps and WIPs set up on the shelf in a way that will work.
Fit the organizers in the drawers so you can easily find your supplies. Yes – I have random things from ribbon, mirrors, buttons, and glitter. I even found my stash of “Shot Glass Jars” (#ad) as I was doing this clean up – very important.
All my die cutters (#ad) now have a proper home where they are stored vertically which a lovely follower made me aware was the proper way to store them. Jared created me a little shelf which I’m not 100% on board with the cardboard he used for one edge but I’m going to let it slide until I find something else I want to put there.
My book shelf is looking fly. The top shelf is books more about art theory, print making, and other non-specific-to-quilting books. Quilting books are on the second shelf and books for sewing “other” things is on the bottom. Do you see my fabulous elephant book end?! (#ad) That guy is making me happy. His brother is on my fabric shelf.
I also now have to get my label maker going to finalize labels for different containers. I waited until the end in case things had to be moved around.
The hardest part at this point it to not just randomly put those random little things you find into a spot to just be done. Make sure as you’re putting it all away it’s going to its home. One week. Seven Day. You Can Do This. We Can Do This.
Stop back next week to see all the before and after pictures. You will be shocked!
