Finally! Organized...
Hi!

Well I spent 7 hours last Saturday tearing up my Art Studio to include my knitting stuff with a semblance of organization! The north wall of my art studio is now dedicated to my books, magazines, binders, and small knitted items, such as my hats and scarves!

I bought these 4 bookcases at Fred Meyer. No assembly.
Not too expensive. They will fold flat for storage or transporting.

Far left bookcase:


Middle two bookcases:


Far right bookcase:


I shoulda taken a "Before" photo! But it would have been embarrassing!

organized
I like it!! I am in the process of doing the same but I think it will take me longer because I have textbooks(math) as well as my knitting/crochet/sewing( all kinds), desk, and more. My room is an office as well as a craft/sewing and more. I figure I will be done sometime this summer, lol!

I also have a Coleman camp chair in there (it has a side table that pops up).
So I can sit with a cup of coffee, and rummage my books, binders and magazines in peace!


It's not gorgeous, but it folds up, AND it is really comfortable. It supports my back just right! I got mine at Fred Meyer when they run their camping equipment sales! But it is also for sale at Amazon.com!

Mine is tan canvas, not gray.

I esp. love all the scarfs. I have so many and eveyone keeps asking why I make so many. I think they're a great project.

WOW! Right now I am going through my book cases and putting books I've got on my Kindle into boxes for the local library. I don't dare put up a picture of my desk right now. The stacks of books, magazines, and yarn are mind boggling from just a physics standpoint.
