Whats On Your Work Wednesday 160......New Desk!!!


Well, its done! Here's my new crafty space, bigger desk better to work on & defiantly brighter! It was 4 days of very hard work. I really didn't think there was as much "stuff" squirreld away in this small corner? However, It filled my bedroom & the hallway upstairs as well as the place behind the sofa in the front room?...Mad! I did have a bit of a chuck out too & filled a bin bag with things that were just not worth hanging on to, old bags, folded up card-bored boxes, you always think they will come in for something! But alas they dont..

I used 3 Expedia Cubes from Ikea, one on each end to support the work-surface & one in the middle. So there is 12 cubbys now for storage, loads more room! It was well worth sorting it out & I am really chuffed with the end result. Mr Lavinia has done a sterling job, as well as making 2 trips to Ikea to exchange something that I wanted to incorporate, but just didn't fit!

I want to thank everyone last last week for the visit. And hope I got back to all of you & to the ones I didn't, I will this week!!! :) No card to show this week as tonight is my first making evening making anything!
Hope you have all had a crafty week & making the best of the rubbish weather! Its my Birthday on Thursday so I hope its NOT raining, but hey even if it is I have my lovely new desk to craft the day away on! :)
Hope you all have a crafty week!
Lavinia

Hi Lavinia,

I sent you an email to verify your mailing address. If you haven't gotten my ATC yet I will be more than happy to make one and mail it to you.

Your new desk looks GREAT! Definitely worth putting up with the crowds at IKEA.

Hugs,

How long do you give it before the desk is covered in inks, papers and card? If it was me it would be half a day. Supremely jealous of your new space - it's wonderful.

Helen said...

Fab Job Lavinia. I love Ikea storage - did you get your wooden boxes recently? The reason I asked is because I tried to get more and they head stopped doing them. I am hoping they might be back! I bet you are sitting enjoying the ambience! WOYWW Hugs from Helen 89

Belinda said...

Lavinia,

I love your new space. I redid my space last year but I still need to purge. Don't you find that to be the hardest thing? Between purging and defining where everything goes, I ended up stuffing some stuff in drawers, cabinets and closets. So your workspace is very encouraging. I may have to take one section at a time and pace myself. I see some of the bins you use look like they are from IKEA. If so, I love that place.

I hope you have a great Birthday. My birthday was on the 16th so a big hello from your Gemini sister!!

Have a great day and have fun playing on that amazing space.

Come play on my desk when you are free.

Can't believe the transformation from last week! You must be knackered from sorting all that lot out! Hope you enjoy some crafting time soon, but don't go getting ink on that sparkling new desk, lol! Happy birthday for tomorrow, enjoy it whatever you get up to.

Your workspace looks fabulous! Love it. I am a bit late visiting this week, but the exams are finally marked, so now life can start again.

Redanne said...

Hi Lavinia, Thank you for your visit. I am so sorry to hear that you have RA, you are so young! At least it waited until I was 59. I can understand partly why it takes so long to get the right drugs, if the cheap option eg. Methotrexate will work then they won't consider anyone for the expensive ones. Just tried Cimzia (Certolizumab), expensive but didn't work so next it is Retuximab. Fingers crossed. Take care! Crafty hugs, Anne x

Redanne said...

Sorry! Meant to say your room is absolutely gorgeous! So much storage and lovely things on the wall cupboard. A x
