That sounds kind of ominous doesn’t it? It’s not really. This week I was hoping to get off to a really good start and I almost made it. I had big plans for New Year’s Day to get some work done in my craft room and I did spend some time in there, it just wasn’t exactly crafting. I was able to move some things around and discovered that I have another set of drawers that are almost empty and with a little more work could come out of my room. After all, that is the goal or at least part of it. The more UFO’s I complete not only will I feel free, I will also free up some space in my craft area. A good portion of my storage is housing my individual UFO’s. I probably should count them so you can see how deep in I am. It’s pretty bad… There always something new that catches my attention and I need to just get in there and get things finished.
We always say, “I’ll get to it when the kids are older/when I retire/when I find the magic formula”. Mine has been when the kids get older. The smallest in now in preschool and I’m trying to take advantage of the time that he is actually in school to be in my room. I have to say that I really am enjoying that and I want to take advantage of that as much as possible.
Anyway, I have two sets of these rainbow drawers. You may have seen them. They look like this:
I have 2, one I had gotten from Joann’s on a Black Friday sale. The problem was that I had though the drawers were big enough for 12×12 paper for my small scrapbooking habit only they were not big enough for that. So, of course, I then had to get another one where the drawers were 12×12.
Remember when I got my awesome Ikea closet system? All my papers and scrapbook stuff moved onto a shelf and I was able to move one of those drawers out of my room. Now I’m about to move things around (probably for the millionth time) and I’ll be able to move the second one out of my room!
Now for the bad part – I will have 2 rainbow drawer sets and I don’t know what to do with them. I’ve been trying to think of ways to repurpose them but I haven’t been able to come up with anything. The drawers are cool although not very deep, but either the frame isn’t that sturdy or I did something wrong when putting it together. I’m not sure which. I’m hoping that I can get them a little sturdier and either sell them or find another way to use them. Any suggestions?
Tomorrow opens up a great opportunity for me to get back in there and either get some things put away or perhaps to get some binding made for the teal and brown quilt that just needs binding before it can be sent off to its new home. At least that would be one UFO that would be complete!
