After carefully maneuvering over and around the stacks of tubs and projects on the floor and looking for fabrics I knew I owned but couldn’t find, I decided that I’d come to the last straw; the end of my rope. This room had become a stress point instead of a DE-STRESS area. Some things HAD to change.
Number one – I have decided that I HATE STORAGE TUBS. At least – I greatly dislike storing things I need to find again in them. It requires – removing said tub(s) from the closet, going through them and then replacing the tubs – which are often heavy and stacked on each other. All of this to find some fabric that I may or may not use and thus may or may not have to replace into the tubs again to put away. So I have been brainstorming some solutions – to keep my fabrics and often used items handy and visible but neatly stored. My room, at this writing, is still a work in progress but I am sharing “the journey” ! Enjoy!
|I organized all of my one-yard + lengths of fabric onto 7.5 x 11.5 pieces of cardboard that I cut from boxes and then stored them on the bookshelf. Between the Bookshelf and the closet I hung a hanging shoe rack on a dowel I installed and all my half yard cuts are stacked here.|
|This is a CD storage rack I ordered online and then we mounted a shelf to hold it on the wall. I LOVE this! It easly holds about 850 fat quarters!|
