Organizational {Friday} Update to Posts

Well, I wanted to let you know that I am in the middle of moving my crafting space. It is a HUGE undertaking! I currently have an office downstairs, and then my crafting space is upstairs in our media room. I love being in there with family; however, I also would love for my husband to have his own space. So, I decided to turn my office into our formal dining room. It is a smaller room thus it would not fit all of my office and crafting furniture but it would be perfect for the dining room. So the original formal dining room will now become my office/crafting space. It seems small to swap two rooms and incorporate a third space into one of them but it has been more than I ever anticipated. I started last Saturday, and I still have a long way to go.

Here is my desk being moved out of the old office with EVERYTHING piled on top of it! Then I already have moved the china cabinet in. And see my little step stool? Yes, us 5 feet "tall" people need a stool wherever we go! LOL!And here is a unit my Mom just bought for my new room yesterday at an antique store:
Isn't it cute? It's an old spice cabinet. The outside dimensions are: 25" wide x 13 1/2" high x 12" deep. Each drawer measures 9" x 2 2/3" wide. I am SO excited to add this to my room. It will be perfect. Thanks Mom for shopping for me!!!

So I may be slow in posting until I get this move done. It is turning out to be a much larger task than I imagined! I can't wait to have it done, and I will share pictures of everything when I have finished. For today, you are welcome to look at my "old crafting space" posts found here and here. And I did finally get the dining room at least finished. Here is what it looks like now:
Enjoy, and thanks for hanging in there with me while I complete the move! Blessings,

Hi Patter--

You are on an adventure! You will find it so exciting after you get it all set. That piece your Mom gave you is wonderful! At first I thought it was the size of a couch! I'm glad I read on. It is beautiful.

When Josh, my son, moved out last March, I waited about 6 or 8 months, and I did what you are doing. I gave Dave the formal living room for his computer and office, I moved my art supplies from 4 different rooms and more closets. I had to put Josh's furniture we donated what he didn't want. But what took so long...was I wanted to see each piece of everything.
I would OOOHHHHH! And AAAHHHHH! everything. Spare yourself from will save you a month of so!

Make sure you lift safely! Be well, My Friend.

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Your dining room looks wonderful. I can just imagine the work but won't it be well worth it? I would like to change the floor covering in my crafting room but I look around and think? What?? I am 71 and just don't have the get up and go that I used to have!!

I can't imagine having a house that has rooms can be changed. I do have a formal diningroom that could be a den or craft room, but then I wouldn't have a room that I could make the formal dining area. I have lived in 5 houses since I've been married and none of them had changable rooms. LOL the first two had 4 rooms, not much to change when you have 2 bedrooms, a kitchen & a living room. The last two have been large houses, but couln't switch anything. You are very fortunate.
