    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.....

    Ordered online at www.bcwsupplies.com and cost me $11 for 100 boards, bought 300 and lots still to use

    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!!

    Yes, this is what I said when I finally finished the room, took me a week to figure out what and where of things but using a focal point was great by setting the bookcase up first and working around that, it all seemed to come together for sure.......now when I redo my NEW CELLAR ROOM, that will b fun.....lots of room.....thanks for your comment.

    I love the hanging bookshelves that flank the window! I would love to know where I can find some please?
    Lots of work there but so worth the effort.

    You did an amazing job of sorting it all out. It must have made moving day a lot easier too. I hope you'll post photos of your NEW space.

    What size are your comic boards? After seeing all the rooms with fabric on the storage boards, I want to do that with my stash also. I didn't realize there were different sizes of boards. How do you know what size to use?

    I totally give you a ton of credit for the changes you made. So, the part that I liked the best was that there was room for the dogs to enter. Now it is right.....One more question? What have you made lately to show us after all the work you did to get things rearrainged? Have a great day.

    I am so sorry, thought I wrte u back.........got them @ Michaels, $10/each, u r suppose to stand them up or turn them over with shelf on top but I looked at them and said, no will turn them the other way to store my books....worked out nice as u can see......better than putting them in those book holders....
