Wool Barn update . . . . .

I haven't posted a Wool Barn update in quite a while.  I am still not out there full-time because of lack of insulation/temperature issues.  I can tolerate it first thing in the morning until about noon and then in the evening after the sun goes behind the trees until midnight LOL.  Dear Hubby is trying his best to get it done but he has until the end of July to finish his Masters and that is more important right now.  I can work around that.

Here are some pics of what I have added and how messy it is!

This is one half of my cutting table.  Two IKEA kitchen base cabinets without doors.  Love the bins.  Under $5.00 with the lid at IKEA.  They hold kits-in-progress.  I will add the same size cabinets to the back of this when I make more money so I will have a 48" x 72" cutting table!

On the left is the cabinet that I showed a few months ago with two sets of drawers for all my "stuff".  You can see a wall of wool texture samples hanging next to the window.  That's a lot of different textures!  The black dresser behind my Goodwill find chair holds my office and kit supplies.

To the right of my Goodwill chair is 5 frames with 4 baskets each - also from IKEA - filled with my personal stash.  Not all of the baskets are even filled.  Two have kits that I haven't bought  the plastic bins for yet and one has wool.

I hate being this cluttered with stuff sitting on every flat surface but until I can get the rest of the cabinets and shelves in place that I want, there just isn't enough room for all my stuff. And NO I don't have too much stuff.  It will all fit in some day.  I have a plan!

Blessings, Cathi

I love how you are organizing your space. What did you use for the top of your cutting table? I trying to figure out how to arrange a small space in a basement room that we are creating. It is also going to be an entertainment area so I can't have the nice open bins that you are using. Do you also have a desk area?
