My husband and I talked about the best way to organize room, but I was hesitant to dump a bunch of money into some elaborate system. I searched Ikea, re-sale stores, and Craigslist. One day, we happened by the Container Store and I went in-- just to look.
Well on that particular day, it turned out to be the BIG Elfa Sale. Oh joy!!
It took almost an entire day to get my craft room under control. I pulled everything out of the room and started over. Lots of things went to Goodwill, the recycling bin and even the trash can.
I moved around some furniture and went through every scrap of fabric. (Which made me realize I was saving way too many little tiny scraps of fabric!)
Jeff re-designed and re-painted my ribbon holder so it would be more useful. (The pink version was too hard to use when it came to removing old spools and adding new ones.)
And my Elfa. Oh my Elfa! A crafty girl's dream.
The other side of the room has the vintage school desk and my inspiration board with a tv mounted above it.
I can definitely say the investment of time and money to get the room under control was worth it. I can find everything and anything easily. I am more efficient when working-and a bit happier too! Perhaps the biggest change has been in my habits. I now make myself clean up before I leave the room, I take the time to pick it up!
So do you have any 'embarrassing' organization disasters like me? A drawer, a closet, an entire room? I hope I am not alone!
