I have been in the process of changing my small third bedroom from the general tip that it was -
|Loads of 'stuff' under the bed|
|Lots of 'stuff' in the cabinet|
Decorating took a few days, especially when I discovered I had forgotten to buy ceiling paint and had to rush out and get some! After that it was just arranging for different people to do different jobs. My wonderful next door neighbour who carried the heavy stuff up and downstairs, another friend who was providing me with some carpet underlay, the fitter who came on the right day to fit the carpet, and finally Mr T without whom none of the drilling would have been done and was quite brilliant, patient and helpful.
So here is the tah dah moment.........
Wait for it ........
So a small 9' x 8' (2.75m x 2.44m) room has been transformed and all my craft stuff is now stored in one place and with some very simple alterations can be turned back into a bedroom when the grandchildren come to stay and will take two beds if necessary.
Everything came from Ikea - the wall storage units are Kallax, the tables are Vaddo and finally Erik
who caused me more problems than everything else put together! However I put all of these items together myself using my trusty cordless screwdriver and I am really pleased with the final effect and best of all, upstairs is now tidy and easy to walk around.
Now to get going with some sewing, the first item being Mini Mania for October, which must be applique and must have some orange in it. I have an idea, the fabric and best of all the right colour sewing thread so lets get going.
