Vacation is in air quotes because I didn’t really take a vacation, my hubs was off of work all last week which meant we tried to knock out any large projects that had been looming. Of course they all took longer than expected lol. But one project we did get done was rearranging my office/studio! I needed a larger table to pack orders and things but without a major shift had no room for it. Its done now! Mostly at least as I still have some things to sort down further 🙂 Want to see piccys? There’s alot lol. Here we go! First the Before…
And now the After…
And the office side of the space…
The tool basket and monitor can easily go to the floor if I need more space but the table is 4′ x 4′ so should be plenty big without doing it 🙂 The shelving for all my crafty stuff is the Rubbermaid Closet System.
The best thing is its all adjustable shelving so I can tweak and play everytime the whim takes me! I opted for alot of shelves with 4 basket drawers. These drawers have my rub ons, 12 x 12 sticker sheets and sketch books then my camera stuff in the bottom.
This drawer has all my Thickers and label stickers
And this one has all the embellishments that couldn’t hang like chipboard, flowers and journaling spots
Everything that could hang is up on my pegboard
Then all my buttons and brads and such are in the magnetic tins below the pegboard
On the shelves next to that are my inks, paints and scraps sorted into a hanging file box, then my ribbons and dymo, next a basket of spooled ribbon and card bases. My cuttle bug, embossing folders and dies are in easy reach though I need to find something to put the Nesties in.
I also made a home for my sewing machine in the shelves so it can stay set up for easy use 🙂
Across the top is all photoboxes with packing supplies, finished cards, printed pics and extra sewing things. All my paper is stored in cubes under the table top. First has my newest papers and cutters then my cardstock below.
This one has all my patterned paper. I’m going to sort those out into single colors in the Cropper Hopper Paper holders and expand it into the ones below, hence the mostly empty bottom cube. I did a little decorating with our stamps. It will keep growing as our line does, like a visual reminder.
Over on the office side, I decorated with embroidery hoops
Our school cubby unit I bought from the antique fair holds all our stock of stamps, my wee bundles (they’ll be moving to the shelves soon), wrap and mini albums.
Even my Momiji dolls found a new home on the window sill.
I totally recommend the Rubbermaid! The site has one of those handy online designers that you can play with to get an idea of what you’d like. It will even print out a parts list to recreate it. Thanks for taking a look at my space! I love how it turned out! Even though it was a big 2 day project. I can use a real vacation now lol though I am happy to be getting back to a regular schedule this week. It was all wonky last week with DH home all day too, I already miss him though. 🙂 Has anyone else done any re-organizing? I’d love to see links!
