In my garage


This may not seem very exciting just yet, but it's all part of my grand plan....

It's taken a little while to sort out, but I'm finally beginning my mini renovation project. I think you have to actually live in a house for a while before you can decide on any major changes that need to be made.

In this big package are the new overhead cupboards for my craft space. They're just flatpack kitchen cupboards (much more cost effective than custom cabinetry). A friend is coming over this week to help me to put them together.

At last I can see a little progress.....

Have fun. I admire anyone that can assemble a flat pack. Ikea and I have a love/hate relationship. I love everything in their store, but hate putting it together. Can't wait to see the end product.

Its so nice to sense your excitement!
It's very inspiring when other artists make moves to really claim their space.
Of course, no one likes flat pack, but its so satisfying when you start putting your stuff in!
Smart moves on the units too! Why pay more than you need to when that spare cash could go on fabric!

Congrats on the purchase of the flat packs, the shelves will be a real boon in your craft space. Hopefully the instructions will be in English and make sense and you and your friend will have them together and up in a jiffy. If not I suppose we'll hear it on the blog :-)

I actually quite enjoy flat pack assembly - which is just as well, 'cos my husband is a bit of a numpty when it comes to such practical matters....

Just wanted to let you know that I followed your teatowel tote bag tutorial and I'm thrilled with the results :-) I made a little bag for myself and a bigger one which I'm giving away on my blog (I added the link to your list of giveaways) - thanks so much for sharing the instructions! xx
