I rearranged my room over a year ago but it took me this long to take a final video of it. It has taken a year to purge and sort and rearrange to get things the way I want them. It's never-ending, isn't it? We decide we like the way stuff is arranged and then you buy something new or you start doing something different or the season changes so the lighting changes and now you have to rearrange again. It drives my husband and kids crazy so now I know if I want to rearrange, I am gonna have to do the bulk of the work myself. They're on strike from rearranging the scrapbook room. And from assembling Ikea furniture. I'll own it – I did overdo requests for both of those things in the past!
This latest iteration of my room is the third version in this space. I moved everything around last year, out of my previous “scrap room” and into the formal living room. I had been using that formal living room area for crops and to prep class kits. I found that my previous space, with the tables lining the walls, had started to feel cramped was really challenging for sewing. In the new space, I moved my 4 farmhouse style tables together to make one large space that is great for cutting fabric and sewing but also good for several smaller projects going at one time. And, I don't have to bring in tables for crops – we can just use these tables.
The main changes I made this time are:
- Moved the 4 tables together in a different configuration
- Moved where I sit and film to another table, with better light
I also moved the Alex rolling cart from Ikea and moved some of the items I had on top of them to my tabletop for easier access. I got rid of alot of clutter and excess supplies over the last few months as well, donating a good portion of those items to the Charity Wings Art Center.
To see how I set up this room in the very beginning, check out this video I made HERE, from last year.
And without further ado, here is this year's tour:
