my work space

I love my office/craft room. I didn't even realize how much until I was editing the photos. Seriously swooning over here.

Recognize the pillow? I love having it in here.
And I love love love my chair.

I need to fill my thread 'stand' with more colors!

The leaning shelf... no longer leaning.
I had it hanging in my bedroom before and a pen would have rolled right off. This time I wedged some foam core in, and it is perfectly level. For now anyway... : )

My letterpress number 7, antique molding, and antique wooden spool.

My sewing machine can tuck between the shelving and the wall when I don't need it.
I have the 5 locker baskets and one other random wire basket that I found at antique stores.

The shelving is made up of a whole bunch of random parts, topped off with a 16 inch deep, 90 inch long pre-made laminate shelf from Home Depot. I have a couple little shelving units and a plastic three drawer 'dresser' holding most of my supplies. I just sewed a simple, randomly pleated, curtain to cover my mess of baskets.

I used sticky velcro to attach it, that way I can change the curtain whenever I want.
I didn't even bother sewing the velcro to the curtain, it stuck well enough.

There is more work to be done... I still need to get some stuff up on the walls, finish 'styling' the floating shelf, re-paint my desk/table, and get completely organized. (You may notice that the baskets still have some random things in them.) My curtains are hilariously short too, but I was using what I had! I think I'll sew some new ones soon. I'll show you any progress I make. And FYI: the other side of the room belongs to the boyfriend... I didn't feel like picking up his side. : )

Now that things are almost complete I can actually get back to sewing and crafting and painting. : )
