My dream workspace, is complete!

My brother Al thought of this for my paint. We attached little plastic crates to the wall and stacked them in there, cool huh.

My husband made this cool holder for my butcher paper to go on so I can just pull off what I want and cut it, it works great for putting down under things when I paint.

A peek inside the drawers. Some of them are really wide and some are more narrow.

I put plastic bins in each cupboard to put material in so I can just pull them out to look through them. I hate just having material loose on a shelf. This drawer works perfect for my patterns.

I can't believe it is finally done! Wow, what a job that was but well worth it! Now I can't wait to start working in there. I tried to organize it so I would be able to keep it neat. I sure hope I can. My son just came in to look at it an asked me "How long do you think it will look neat and organized like this?" I'm not sure but hopefully I will be able to straighten up everyday for a little bit and try to keep in nice. We'll see! I couldn't fit all my stuff in the room, bulky stuff like fur, felt, wool sweaters, wool shirts etc. so I put it in plastic bins and will have to stack them in the other room in the basement. My craft room is in the basement, it's a walkout basement so it's on the walkout side which gives it more light. Now it's bright and cheery in there isn't it! Thanks so much to my wonderful husband, my great brothers Al and Bruce for all of your amazing talent and help! I wouldn't have this awesome space without them! Just in case you forgot how bad it was before here are a couple pictures.

Amazing huh! I know, I can't believe it is the same room.
We're supposed to get a huge winter storm here tomorrow, 6-10 of snow, YUCK! I feels like spring will never come! Hope you all have a GREAT week!
