Craft Room Reshuffle

We got some "new" furniture yesterday thanks to some neighbours who are moving house.

Our new oh-so-practical sofa bed is positively crying out for some new handmade cushions...
Did someone say "summer project"? I think they did. (Note the curtainless window on the right, the curtain rail fell down yesterday! oops)

Most exciting of all our new bits of kit: some new shelves for my crafty gubbins! My old shelves looked like this, though they were starting to overflow a little with recent acquisitions so it will be awesome to have all this space...

Lovely deep wooden shelves that *just* squeezed into the room:And a little white shelf unit which technically is supposed to be being used for utility room stuff - washing powder, vases, that sort of thing - but which is totally getting co-opted to the crafty cause:A mountain of homeless crafting supplies has appeared on the kitchen table:
All other tidying and chores have now been put on hold while I sort out my lovely shelves!

Always nice to get "new" things and ones that fit perfectly and lend themselves to future projects. Some really nice bright cushion would look great :)

love the *new* shelves! i'm in the middle of a gigantic organizing overhaul around here. being a crafter is worse than being a shopper. erm. maybe its the same thing. bottles of glitter instead of shoes though...

Excitement! I love getting new-old stuff, as it means newness without breaking the bank!
Have fun organizing it all, 'm sure your supplies will all be very happy in their new home
