I never thought I would consider moving from a three-bedroom house with walk-in closets and a two-car garage to a one-bedroom, 1.5 bath condo but I am so glad I did. This is my new view from my living room.
In the past few years, my husband and I lost our parents. The painful task of sorting through your parent’s possessions really makes you evaluate how much stuff you own.
My house was full of fabric I had collected over the past 40+ years as well as five sewing machines and who knows how many dolls. I also had shelves of books and cabinets full of dishes I no longer used.
I was like the children of Israel described in the Bible “For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.” Exodus 36:7 King James Version.
One of the first things we did, was to make the dining room space into an office/sewing area. We drove to the nearest Ikea (about 2.5 hours away in Tampa) and purchased shelving and desks.
The cost of this setup was about $1000 but it’s very functional. The fabric inserts were purchased at Wal-Mart. They will hold as much fabric and supplies as an under-the-bed plastic storage container.
It’s still a work in progress but I am happy with the results so far. (Glad I got my husband that new cordless drill with attachments for Christmas)
We recently had one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen!
Looking forward to more dolly fun! Stay tuned……
