I really have window issues. I wish we had daylight windows in the basement. Alas, we only have one tiny egress window, and it's not in my craft space.
A more pressing matter is organization. A few weeks ago, I was trying to prepare a shipment to drop off at the post office on my way to work and I couldn't find the packing tape. I ran through three levels of the house searching for it.
Blast it! I'm not doing that again! What I need is a pegboard.
I picked up the largest scrap pegboard at ReStore I could fit in my car for only a dollar (never mind the tear and broken corners - I can cut it down). One more dollar got me a small bag of various pegboard hooks. In keeping with my February plan to deal with unfinished projects, I employed some shutters that have been gathering dust in the garage.
I gave the pegboard a coat of craft paint and sealed it with Mod Podge.
No more hunting for scissors. A co-worker had cleaned out her own craft room and passed along her thread rack.
The pegboard had slightly ragged edges after cutting it, but the shutters concealed the sides. I added a piece of scrap trim to cover the bottom edge. Rather than add trim to the top, I sewed an old valance into a ruffled and pinned it along the top.
A place for everything and everything in its place, Mr. Packing Tape!
