The Next Domino, The Desk

I blogged last week about the crafting domino effect.  I needed a desk and figured I could use the scrapbooking storage cubes I had, but I had to free them from their current station in the bathroom.  I found an armoire that is working out splendidly, so now I'm on to the desk.

This was pretty simple... I had four scrapbooking storage cubes (I bought them so many years ago, I can't even remember when) that were being used in different rooms for different purposes.  I gathered them up, stacked them, and bought a small sheet of wood for the top.  After covering the wood with some pretty fabric, I had myself a desk.

I was watching "The Tudors" on Netflix.

 There is no outlet on this wall, so the hubbeldy-bubbelty found a power strip to give me some juice.  I'm still making peace with the cords.

 So, as you can see, there are four cubes and they're all working as a team.  Before, they were quite divided and bickering constantly.  This is better.

This is my high-tech method for storing my fabric.  It's dowels cut to fit the drawer.  Totally high-tech.  I have so much more fabric, but I have to move slowly or I get cranky.  That's just how I roll.

This is such an improvement for my workspace: previously I was working at the kitchen table.  Which is fine and all, but when gravy is getting all over your keyboard, you need to re-evaluate.  Mostly about why every meal has gravy on it.

The next step in the domino is the make-shift pantry.  Stay tuned!


  1. Tee, hee...
    This looks great. Why is there never an outlet where we want them? My house is 100+ years old, so I guess that would be why, in my case, sigh. Looking forward to the next project!


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
