A peek inside my Drawers!

I wrote and edited this post, went to preview it and all the writing had disappeared! No idea what happened there! Blogger on the blink? Anyways have a peek inside my world :) This pic is the computer area before: This is after: Yesterday Mal finished my final worktop for making art on, and then decided to varnish it, which takes 24 hours to dry! so no art today in my new area.. patience is not a virtue of mine! propped these two on her for the pic of the work surface:So if you are interested here are pics of my new drawers of the wooden and wire kind in my studio/workshop. We found all the components in Ikea on sale, the drawers were a bargain at a fiver each, apart from the little one with compartments and the baskets, but the top and sides were a bargain too. He is so clever just putting it all together with not a lot of help from Klutzy me, who managed to drop herself down the stairs and drop everything else in sight too! I have filled them up and I am sure that the surfaces will get cluttered again very soon, with more going in the drawers as I find all the stash which was put in boxes while the work was being done. All I need now is inspiration! A BIG thank you to Mal, for being such a star for creating such a great area for me to clutter up again!
I have a little idea in my head for publication tomorrow.. so watch this space!
Happy Creating

Those drawers look like a fantastic buy.

I bought some new ones today and now my craft room looks like it exploded. I guess I'll be doing a bit of organising tomorrow...

How nice to have a husband who can DIY! Once you settle into the new area, you'll wonder how you ever managed... Great storage, even better that it was a bargain. Congratulations and ENJOY.

Hmmmm...I wonder how long it will remain so organised lol

Mine looks like I've been raided.

I've never been to Ikea. Looks like it was well worth the trip. Mal did a great job.
