Getting organised

Okay here we go.  It’s got to be at least two years that I’ve been waffling on about my ‘spare/sewing/craft’ room and how I’m going to tidy and organise it.  Well 2010 is the year it’s going to happen. There’s going to be less talk and more action!!

I found some lovely pics to inspire me and today I braved the icy roads to make a trip to B&Q (I’ve just about given up on every getting to Ikea) and got some shelving and other bits and bobs.

First thing tomorrow morning the room is getting a serious makeover.  (I’m hoping that writing this on my blog is going to give me the kick up the bum I need, otherwise I’ll feel a right sausage).

Here’s some of the pics I found to give me ideas … 

I’ve had this saved on my hard drive for a long long time so I’m afraid at this stage I can’t even credit the lovely owner (if anyone recognises it please let me know).

Then there’s these fab images I found on Better Homes & Gardens website.

Spot the trouser hangers in the picture below – genius!

In the meantime here are some free downloadable labels I’ve found that you might like for your own organising :o)
These are from Poppytalk available to download for free from here
And these are from Creature Comforts available to download for free from here
I’d love to hear about or see some of your craft spaces. Leave me a comment and a link or let me know if you’ve seen some good ones online.  Likewise if you’ve found some lovely labels let me know.  I am a stationary junkie !!

Wish me luck! 

The room really is a mess, in fact it’s gotten worse since this post.

    I shall be watching what you do with that space with interest. We are hoping to move house soon and hopefully I will have a nice craft space so I need lots of ideas.

    Good luck with the big tidy up Michelle.
    I've been threatening to do my spare room for ages too. I do little semi clean ups, but it still looks like it belongs to a chronic hoarder who can't get rid of anything and just keeps piling stuff on top of things until said pile reaches the top of the door.
    I keep thinking it's because I don't have enough storage, but if truth be known, it's simply because I have TOO MUCH STUFF!
    I look forward to seeing your results, It might spur me on, fingers crossed.
