New use for discarded furniture.
One glass door cabinet filled up neatly with art and calligraphy stuff - paints, inks and pencils in the bottom four shelves, and sketchbooks, brushes and other stuff in the top shelves.
On the right can be seen part of a trolly thing on casters, which holds more craft stuff, and all my sewing machine threads in boxes. I bought this gadget from the Innovations mail order catalogue because it was cheaper than buying a similar product at Office Works or Howards Storage. Of course cheap means cheap and nasty and made You Know Where, so when I came to assemble it from the pack, the sides were all skewiff because the bottom screw holes had been placed 4 centimetres out of alignment with the top holes. I was going to throw the whole thing out in disgust, but ended up making do with it the best I could, simply because I did need those extra shelves.
One corner of my craft room/library - the new unit is up against the wardrobe door, but as it and the other trolley are on castors, they are easy to move away if I need to get into the wardrobe to retrieve fabrics or other sewing stuff.
The next corner with desk and another bookcase, with my craft magazines on most shelves. On the left of those are some more shelves built into the corner and I've got art books and paper craft supplies there.
In front of the curtained window is the table where I do my sewing. Under that is two large wire baskets full of fabrics and batting.
On the other side of the same window is this corner with two more bookshelves. The black rooster is a little blackboard - pressie from my friend Sharon! On the left of the shelves is the filing cabinet that Ken and I keep all our 'official stuff' in - paid accounts, tax records, warranties, vehicle registrations, and all that stuff.
Oh yes, there is still stuff on the floor, but as I have now covered all the available wall space around the room, it will have to stay there.
