A Fine Mess

It was such a simple plan: I’d move some of the stuff off the shelves so I could brush the feather duster over the top layer or two of grime. Then drag the fabric bins out into the hall and run the vacuum around. A good couple of hours and I’d be done, with a nice clean room.

That was Tuesday morning.


This was the situation by Wednesday afternoon:
 
My simple plan did not include allowances for investigating the contents of each and every container, deciding I didn’t want half of it, then deciding whether I wanted to throw it away, give it away, or sell it, and then reorganizing the remaining half.
 

The good news is that as of Friday night I had all of the to-go stuff out of the room, and it’s looking pretty clean, open, and conducive to creativity again.
 

The bad news is that all of the stuff I took out hasn’t really gone anywhere, it’s just sitting in the hall. I guess that’s some sort of progress?

  1. All I can say is that your space in chaos looks better than my creative slum any day of the week.
    Well done for being organized and even thinking of cleaning!

  2. I love cleaning out my sewing room. It is like fabric shopping all over again.

  3. I would never show my sewing work area. Your floor is actually visible.
