Phase 1 of my mission to organize
Getting my sewing and fabric room organized has been my
biggest wish list thing to for quite some time.
But it has been pushed into to action now because a week ago
this past Friday I was at a thift store (Savers) and saw this nice
L-shaped desk that I wanted.
Well knowing how things can get sold fast at this store I didn't waste
any time I marched up to the cashier told them I wanted to purchase
the big desk and I would return the next day to pick it up.
I told my husband about this desk and he asked how big was it. I told
him that it will fit where my current desk is blah blah blah. I HONESTLY
did think it would fit.
So we get to Savers hubs pulled out the measuring tape and OH MY
GOODNESS! that desk was 7-1/2 feet long on one side. He said there
was no way it was going to fit anywhere in our small condo. Telling me
that was like waving a red flag in front of a bull! I was determined to
prove him wrong.
So I proceeded to load the desk up piece by piece into my little car
and come home. I measure my space in my sewing room and oh no
the desk is to big to fit in there the same way I have the current sewing
machine desk (my old L-shaped desk).
Well to make this long story shorter I devised a plan that will allow me
to use the new desk, but it means moving EVERYTHING in my sewing
room out so that I can have room to set up the new desk.
So I moved ALL my bins of fabric to the fabric room, but this is what my
(UNorganized) stash looks like at this present time.
To start with this is the desk I was determined to make fit.
This is the "upper" section of my youngest daughters platform
bed that her and her dad made many years ago. There is enough
room to hold 18 bins 58qt size on the upper section. Right now I
only have 12 bins in place.
This photo show the lower section of the platform bed. I can
put 24 bins 58qt size here. Right now there is only 20 bins plus
1 shorter bin (hidden) in here.
Here are 4 more bins plus 1 shorter bin.
This is the largest bin I have not sure the size but it is full of
Once I get everything cleaned and organized I plan to sort
through the fabric and start selling and donating some of it
so that I can downsize.
These bins do NOT show ALL my fabric I have a lot more which
is on bolts.
Hopefully this week I can get the desk moved in and set up so that\
I can get things set up again.
