No, before you ask, this is not sponsored by ikea lol. It just so happens that I am incredibly poor all the time so that is where I buy my furniture :p So this is a peak into my wee crafty shelves in the craft room or 'The Wee Sweat Shop' as my boyfriend calls it!
These are my two brand new Spontan Magnetic boards beside my expedit. I will show you a picture now of before spontan arrived... you may be able to see the bare walls beside the expedit. The room is coming along nicely!
See... On the left here as a view from the sofa Ive set up a permanent sewing table (so to speak) which I haven't shown you but I will eventually :p to the right of the expedit I have moved that bin of papers and now the table top ironing board hangs on the nail below the green next bag. that was my bin :p above there then Ive now got a bag full of plastic bags to use as bins etc. The iron goes ontop of the wardrobe and slipped into the side... basically that bottom corner down there is my ironing on the floor space.
These are just above the sewing table so theres a little clip that can hold documents and printed out sewing tutorials! My to do list and to buy lists are up there too! Here, you can just about see my permanent sewing table fixtures and down to the right is the cats tent.. fashioned out of a box lid and another box.
Ok now obviously the sewing machine lives on the table... Collipe as I have so named her. Those of you are into your greek mythology may get that one!
The top shelf there holds all my sewing books but they were all the floor when I shot this because I was working on some project organization! I promise that once I get back to ikea and get myself a large rug and maybe sorted out my wee sewing space a little better I will show you! If i refer to the second image from the bottom showing the sewing table... Its actually a fold away picnic table thats great if there are guests over because we can fold it up and save space but I might get a fold down table set up under the magnetic boards because the picnic table is an awful height. Its too short for ordinary chairs and my back is starting to suffer. Perhaps I could just cope with the little table I have and Use some bricks or wooden blocks to prop it up taller and invest in a back brace maybe?! Who knows...
Who loves the Cath Kidston decoupaged bread bin?! That currently stores printer ink, small tool sets, and diy bits and bobs every crafter needs ^_^
Lots of love Claire xo
