    Quilt Room Moved From Small Bedroom to Big Bedroom and Reorganized

    I had a very small quilt and craft room and just kept tossing things into it, so small I did not want to work in there except to put things in there, I am sure others understand on where I am coming from for sure!!!!!

    I was in the process of making a den into our larger bedroom and then decided, NO, I needed a bigger room so why not change the rooms, make the small room the den...yes...so that is what I did!!!

    Please enjoy my pictures of the old room and redone room!!! I enjoyed it a lot but a couple months went by and we ended up selling our home and there goes the new room!! Still wanted to share this with all and it meant so much to me......yet, here in our new place...duplex, I am going to make another NEW room in our cellar and will be better and bigger for sure, pictures to follow this winter for sure......so in the meantime, enjoy what I did and maybe can give some of you ideas:

    I had to add more information in a new post here due to only able to post 10 pics. Here is the beginning of using Comic Book Boards I got and reorganized for the NEW room this winter, what a space saver for sure for all of u too:

    Before pics of material:

    Using the boards, thicker ones are 3 yds. and smaller 1 yd., u can wrap up to 8 yds. I believe on one....could not believe this little book shelf is holding so much material.....

    You really had a nice space for your work! I hope your new space works out well. One of these days, I have to start the fabric folding! Kudos to you for all that difficult organizing work!!
