Last week I started a job that foolishly I thought would only take 3 days to complete...oh how wrong I was!
My workroom has been in desperate need of a coat of paint and a massive sort out for ages, I finally snapped a couple of weeks ago when I pulled a magazine from a huge pile of clutter and the whole lot came crashing to the floor hitting my leg in the process. Something had to be done...and fast.
So I booked two weeks off work to get on with it and other stuff. This is the room cleared of all my crap. You can see why it needed to be done.
So where had all my crap gone you ask...into another room is the answer! My bed was in this state for about 3 days and so I was sleeping on the living room floor (it was a bit like camping out).
The plan for the workroom was:
1. To have a huge black board for jotting down ideas and 'to do's'.
2. Create more storage space.
3. Have areas for Drop the Weasel stock, packaging materials and equipment.
4. Have a flow to the room with easy movement and not to over stack the shelves.
I drafted in my brother in law to drill the holes for the shelves as I'm rubbish with a drill and take way too long.
Baby kept an eye on the redecorating (and yes, he did get covered in paint again!)
Painting brackets and shelves has to be the most boring job in the world. Each one needed so many coats of paint. I had to really push myself to get them done.
So this is how it's all looking now, bright, clean, organised, and streamlined, it feels great. I've taken bags of stuff to the charity shops, bags of rubbish to the tip and loads of paper to the recycling bin.
I'm loving my black board.
It all looks so neat, it doesn't look like my room!
I can see the floor!!
I've even got a little space for a display table.
It's not all done yet though. I ran out of brackets and shelves so I've had to order more which won't be here for another week, and then the painting starts again...GROAN.
But that said I love it and already I feel motivated to get more done so that's a good thing. Having a sort out is definitely good for the soul I reckon
and Baby seems to like it too (can you just see his painted whiskers).
