New Furniture!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you may remember that just about a year ago, I cleaned up and reorganized my creative space.  I had a serious case of the "wanties" for the Martha Stewart craft furniture pictured above, but managed to get pretty neat and organized with what I had.  Well, on Mother's Day, we were visiting with my sister-in-law on Long Island who has a lovely and spacious ranch-style home with a HUGE finished basement.  She had recently purchased TWO of the craft tables shown above as well as the storage piece behind it with the wrapping paper hutch.  My DH must've seen the longing (bordering on jealousy!) in my eyes and decided he wanted me to have some smart new craft furniture.  He found it on sale with free shipping, and the next thing I knew, it had arrived!  This past week he spent a good bit of time assembling it all and now HERE IT IS!

It looks clean and sharp, even in my small work space!

The table has two shallow drawers that are perfect for some of the flatter items I have to store, like bead organizers, wire tools, and shrink film supplies.  The larger piece has two shallow drawers, the top one with all these adjustable dividers!  Wow, I can't wait to start filling it up!

Here's how the room looks now.  I'll need to get a stool, since the table is much higher than the previous folding table I was using.  And I think I'd better get cracking and straighten up the sewing area again - next to those two clean, white spaces, it looks pretty messy!  I'll get to that later this week.

Meanwhile, thanks a million, honey!  What a fantastic gift!
