I actually laughed out loud when I wrote “finale”. As most crafters probably know from experience, your craft room will never be clean. It’s kind of like laundry in a way…..
If it is clean, it probably stays that way for only a few hours or days before the next creative endeavour. And it’s hard to even call it “clean”. I like to refer to it as “organized chaos”, since you still see a lot of “stuff”. All of it has purpose though, I promise you. lol.
Anyhoo, for those who didn’t read my first post on cleaning the craft room, here is a before picture;
And here is what it looks like
now for now;
Organized chaos at it’s best? I suppose, lol.
I still need to go through a few more buckets and drawers and find some permanent homes for some things, but I’m happy I can see my floor and walk through the room (which is very small if you can’t tell from these pictures!). That cart you see above, was actually a wine cart/chopping board my neighbour gave to me at our old apartment. It has turned out great for storage, especially when I save my old Pringle’s tins, which I have filled with wooden craft sticks of various sizes, and placed on the wine holder grooves. The bottom shelf is flat, so its great for storing things, and the top is a nice work surface (which has grooves that are great for catching all sorts of things when working in 1:48 scale! :))
Now let’s see how long this will last. I have no “next project” in sight, so it might be a while! Maybe the clean work space will give me a clearer frame of mind. 🙂
I’ll let you all know what happens next!
