A step closer....

...to having my craft room finished, lol..

Ikea delivered my other unit and table that I couldn't fit into my car today, so just had to go straight up and put the unit together, (am getting quite a dab hand of putting the expedit units together, as done 4 already, starting with biggest one for Steven's room which was 25 holes, so the 8 one was so easy, lol)... Then I sat with Steven while Clive went up and put the table together. I do like Ikea stuff, it seems so sturdy and does not take much to put together...

So here a picture of my 20 holes ready to be filled, I've put the 2x2 one on wheels as it's been put in front of the door that goes into the eves, which when sorted will hold my Christmas decorations and bits I buy/make early for peoples birthday and Christmas...


and here is my desk, it's a Galant table (80cm x 160cm) it can have extra lengths and accessories added to it, so will see how I go... I bought the Moses chair and castors suitable for hard floor. This chair was recommended by my auntie who has had hers a few years now and it's fab, comfy with small arm rests if needed, thank Liz... .



I've also got another 4 holes to fill here.



but this 2x2 unit has a piece of melamine put on the top instead of the proper piece of wood, as that was too thick to fit on the base that goes over the stairwell. I felt the space was wasted as too deep just for ordinary shelving... and seeing nothing is going to be placed on top or the unit moved should be fine.




So all is needed now is my stash to be taken up 2 flights of stairs, any volunteers?

...but a word of warning, the front and back door will be locked and you will be searched before you leave, lol...

So any volunteers?

ah ha - but what about the windows?!!! What do you reckon girls, we could pass bits out of the windows - one box upstairs, one out the window etc?!!! And then fight over them later!

It's going to be amazing Maria, makes my Crafty Corner (which I love!) seem tiny in comparison! You're a lucky girl!

Hugs - Carole x

Susan said...

That looks ace, I love those Expedit units. I have one of the 25 hole ones in my craft room but yours look better.

Hi I'm Maria... said...

thanks susan, steven has the 25 one in he's room, but it was too big for my attic...xx

sue-bubbles said...

Maria, Wow look at all that space, drool I want to come and play ...Yep carole I get at the bottom you do the window. lol Sue I reckon I could pick locks lol

Hi I'm Maria... said...

jan said...

wow Maria, well done what a lovely craft room, and great slots to fill with your lovely stash, fab place and fab colours too, am so pleased for you to have your own space. Jan xx

DGgirl said...

Oh Maria

What an absolutely gorgeous room this is going to be - I'm so so envious but you deserve it sooo much. I have a couple of weeks holiday coming up and am in desperate need of exercise so count me in for stash shifting - would definitely be a win/win situation aweetie.

I don't think Sue's hips could cope so she and Gina can help you put it all away once I get it up there - how;s that for a plan?

Hi I'm Maria... said...

thanks jan and gill...

now gill, is this an offer of lugging it UP to the attic for me and NOT into your car? lol...xx

Sall said...

Maria, that depends entirely on whose doing the searching?

I wanted a table like that...couldn't get one, Ikea wouldn't deliver, managed to get something elsewhere...it looks fantastic still in it's box...it would seem nans cupboard and now a wasp nest is higher priority.

Hi I'm Maria... said...

I'm still trying to find bits of stash from round the house sall...xx

sorry to hear your ikea did not deliver I was very lucky mine did, it's a lovely table hope you gets yours sorted soon, and the wasp nest...xx

Hi I'm Maria... said...

thanks jackie, trouble is, I'm not sure if it's enough, lol...xx
