My Creative Space

As all of you probably know, we moved into our new home about 2 months ago. We are still buried in boxes, but I am so happy to say that we've actually made a dent in "The Wall" (the boys named it that because our front room was nothing more than a wall of boxes). We still have a long ways to go until it's finished, but here's a sneak peek at what we've gotten done so far.

"Before" picture of "The Wall"
Before we started, you couldn't even get into the room. There were two bookshelves and a dresser blocking the doorway totally. Where did they go? Keep looking and find out!

What's Still Left To Do
Ack! These are just some of the boxes (well, all the ones in here) that still need to be tackled and dealt with. It may be a while before this room reaches completion!

Bookshelves & Drawers in place!
Ah ha! Here is one of the bookshelves. It's up against the front wall of the room and now actually has all of the shelves on it and books slowly starting to fill it in. I'm still not sure where the missing drawer is to my plastic drawers but it has to be in a box somewhere!

Drawers & Other Bookshelf
You found them! There is the second bookshelf and the dresser that used to block the doorway. I got them into the room and into place and now they're slowly filling up. The two "missing" drawers are actually out in the living room on the couch. When I moved this in, there wasn't room to actually put the drawers back in. The top drawer is broken (yes mom, I know you fixed it but it broke again..I'm thinking duct tape) so nothing is being stored in it until I can find a way to fix it.

Paper Sorter
Just another angle. You can see how I got the paper sorter up on top and all of the papers organized into it by color. The two drawers that aren't broken and are in are storing my stamp sets. I'm going to have one more drawer for that, as soon as I get it into the dresser and emptied out of other things.

So, that's my progress! It's slow but it's coming along. Other things keep getting in the way of unpacking! Darned life!
