So here are a few before pictures:
My closet just had too much stuff in it. This picture was taken after I had cleaned out the bottom portion of the closet. I stacked my file drawers and moved all the clothing that needs to be sewn over to the far left. I then condensed down our games and the amount of totes I had.
Here is everything that was brought out from the closet or that was on that white shelf. Much of it is on the floor under the table. That white shelf, from Ikea, was on the other side of my room next to my computer desk. I got rid of a lot of what was on the table. If I didn't get rid of it, I found it a proper home.
So now here are the after pictures:
As you can see, I pared down our games. Many of our games were meant for adults or teenagers and well, we have young children.
My computer desk moved just a bit closer to the door and I added, to the left, another desk and the drawer system. The whiteboard is going to be where I put my stats and goals and ideas, and I now have a dedicated photo space for photographing my product. The desk area still needs a lot of work, but that will come. I need some inspiration. And for the record, I hate...no....loathe cream white walls. I really want to paint but we are in a rental and I don't want to paint it back.
Here is the view from the doorway. I moved my ironing station right up here just to add a bit of air flow. It was over where the white shelf is now. The cutting table stayed the same and I just moved the sewing table over to be flush up against the shelf.
It is such an awkward and small room so I didn't gain moving around room but I did gain some more space in terms of working which was what I was looking for.
And anytime you are able to donate and fill up trash bags, it is a very liberating feeling.
