Well, I spent some time yesterday laying out my work spaces for both of my work areas and I have to say, if they turn out the way I have envisioned they will be very satisfactory and useable! I did get a little carried away and started moving some things around. My plans call for a new work table in the metal/glass/clay room that will have to be built. Other than a few easy shelves, that will be the only new purchase! And there are some rather large pieces of storage that need to be moved. Waiting to move everything until all the new builds and big storage is moved would probably have been wise but this will work because I have to empty some spaces before they can be refilled with other stuff.
I am thinking the sewing/paper room can be all rearranged and set up before the other room gets its final arrangement. So I guess after I move the rest of the metal working supplies out of there that I will attempt to move the tables and storage units around to their new locations and then concentrate on that room to get it presentable. I can't really do the new work station in the metal room by myself so it will probably have to wait for help, so I will probably just set up 2 small tables to use in place of the new work table, until it can be created and installed. I should be able to almost finish that room, too, will just have to move the new table stuff again when it is installed.
I am very positive about how I think it will work out! Trying to purge a little as I go, also. After last night, moving stuff around, it looks like a bomb went off in the dungeon! Now that it has begun, it has to be presentable by the end of the evening on July 15th (not the new work table necessarily but everything in place)! We are having a party on the 18th and I need time to prepare for that so the deadline has been set! The frenzy begins.
And I have decided that the base cabinets will be a soft aqua and that I am running that color through the den and into the laundry room, also painting the cabinets there the same color. With white counter tops and white walls. All cabinets will be aqua, walls and counter white, shelves aqua and at least one table in the family room will be aqua. So, the whole job involves most of the basement, really. I am hoping for a nice clean, fresh, coastal look. Taking pics today to show the mess. Not exactly before and afters but almost, since I went wild last night and tore everything apart!
Can you tell I am excited?
