So anyway, I decided to splurge on some proper storage. I measured up carefully, drew up a plan on squared paper and worked out where everything could go. I bought a couple of cheap extra-deep shelving units from Sainsburys Online which were delivered in less than a week - those will do to house the tubs and some other bulky items. But the best bit is the purpose-built craft storage units from Storage 4 Crafts - it was very hard to choose which combos to go for, but I settled on a mixture of 1", 2" and 3.5" shallow drawers, 12" sloping paper shelves, a desk and a couple of other items which I hope will allow me to make an organised creative space. After a bit of a hiccup due to some parts not arriving from Canada, they finally phoned yesterday to arrange a delivery time and I'm SO excited!!!
Now the really hard work starts - clearing the space and putting the units together. The fun part will be putting it all back - can't wait! Watch this space :o)
