au revoir, plastic bins

*


i scrubbed the cubby unit, & had people who could lift things heavier than a flea move it into my studio. it needs to be painted sooner than i'd planned, because i wasn't able to get most of the marks & stains off. still! clean is good enough for holding stacks of fabric!

that one cubby; with the dinky pile; now holds a large square basket of scraps. it's so much nicer than digging through bins to find them. i've more to do yet, but no time at the moment. that's ok, unlike other projects, this one makes me giddy enough to motivate me to get it done.

happily, i think i'll have enough room on the top two rows to house the remainder of my fabric. that leaves the whole bottom for bins of craft supplies. hoorah! oh! plus the top of the unit itself. hmm. perhaps my baskets of files, markers, glues, fabric paints...

~peace.

sweet! i need to organize very, very much. i have to find something that fits neatly under a 100 year old oak square table that i use for working downstairs in our creative space / living area, something that doesn't involve stacking unwieldy baskets :)

I like it! It looks good. But how do you keep the dust out? I thought about adding more shelves above my desk but I am afraid to get my precious Japanese fabric dusty on open shelving...
