What a great idea! Going through old magazine clippings and found this. I decided it was blog worthy!

Working on my attic craft space
It Beats Dyeing Easter Eggs!
I decided to tackle a little organizing as my Saturday before Easter project. This is the right corner adjacent to my new desk in the bonus room over the garage. I’ve been calling it my craft space, but actually, much to my husband’s dismay, I have craft spaces all over our house. This one is going to be my jewelry making and scrapbooking space.
The container holders are Jetmax, and I found them at Tuesday Morning about a year ago. This is all very white. I will photograph it again when I get those shelves and containers filled. And, of course, that table won’t be bare for long!
A new desk for my craft space
I ordered this from the Container Store. There’s one in Charlotte, but I didn’t want to load it, lug it 90 miles, and unload it. I had it shipped. I did have to maneuver the top up the attic stairs to the bonus room. I was really proud of myself until I opened the carton and found damage. My stairs are thickly carpeted so I think this happened during shipping. It wasn’t too bad, and I surely wasn’t going to wrestle it back downstairs. Gravity would’ve helped, but still… I sealed it with some white glue the best I could and left it to dry.
I decided to tackle assembly on Friday. The online video was very helpful.
The second set was a drawer frame. It was a little bit harder, but I got to pound it together with a rubber mallet. This would’ve been a great afterschool activity when I was teaching!
I had to wait till yesterday for Kent to help me set it upright. It’s very heavy.
While we’re talking trash…
<I love these rectangular Gerber Baby Food containers for bead storage. Peter James is eating all table food these days, but I managed to save and wash several while he was in the baby food stage. (It’s also interesting that http://www.monarchwatch.org/ likes to use these containers for housing caterpillars and hatching their butterflies!) I’ve been doing a little organizing of my primary craft space, today, and I am also glad I purchased this umbrella-photo-keeper-thingy at the Container Store. I couldn’t find it on their website, but here’s one at Amazon: www.amazon.com/Umbra-Fotofalls-Metal-Desktop-Holder/ It’s great for clipping up parts of an upcoming jewelry project!
