but I wanted to share with you what I've been working on this week! I got this idea while I was out in San Diego, but it took me awhile to find the perfect paper - and then - FIFTY FOUR sheets of it! LOL! My favorite color is turquoise and I love swirls, so when I saw this piece of Heidi Swapp paper, I knew it was just what I wanted.
I cut off the bottom strip - it fit perfectly in the fronts of the 12" wide drawers that are behind my work table. I have 54 of these drawers.
The next 2 1/2" up on the paper became the liner for my 10" wide drawers. And then the next 6 1/2" was used to line the drawers of the larger bins at the bottom. Is this just not wonderful to look at? And the fun thing - when I get tired of turquoise, I can just change it out!
I covered the spines of my magazine holders and a few binders.
Here is a close-up of the smaller drawers. I do not have the labels on them, that will be next week. I think I will use Nestabilities, but I might use the paisley nesties - just not sure yet!
Here's a close up of the larger narrow bins - 11 1/2" x 6 1/2" so I could use the upper part of the paper here.
On the right are some new ribbon keepers from Craft Mates. On the left are some binders, just slid the paper down inside the clear cover.
And finally, the largest drawers. This took 2 pieces of the top of the paper and I inverted one, so the swirls are in opposite corners.
For me, this is just so much better than having drawers where you can see inside to all that clutter. I can hardly wait to get the labels done and I'll post more photos when I get the whole thing complete. I've spent the last 3 weeks sorting and cleaning out my studio - must be time for the annual neighborhood garage sale? Dare I take photos and post that? LOL!
