Operation Tidy Up the Creative Space - Stage One Complete(ish)

The messy brown cupboard (as opposed to the messy built-in) looked like this....


Now, replaced, looks like this...

Thanks to an Ikea bookshelf with glass doors, a dad who went with me to pick it up and bring it home and a hubby, who despite being sick, did a little each day to put it together for me.

The top houses some of my craft books, organised into type and a few little nick-nacks...

Some antique wooden Japanese language tiles... some mini geisha getta, some shadow box pieces of mine...


Some very large Japanese antique cotton reels, that I plan to do something with one day...

And then, behind patterned, frosted glass....


...my Japanese cotton fabric stash as well as a few kimono pieces that I'm using at the moment...

While they were neatly folded, I couldn't resist taking a few photos... I know they won't stay like this for long...


... now, the rest of the room to do...

Nice work Melanie! I do love a good tidy up (sad but true). Ikea is where I started to for extra storage too. And your stash is so neat now... looks great

I so want to raid your fabric stash! I love the new cabinet, the glass doors are perfect for displaying your beautiful fabric.
