Finally! My new (to me) Ikea shelves are in their new home, right in my craft room! My friend Linda and I — and our husbands — went to our friend Shannon’s house this morning to get the shelves. I knew what the dimensions were, but when I walked into the room and saw the actual size of the shelving unit I gasped. Really. And then a big old grin spread across my face and I all but rubbed my hands together in anticipation of filling up the cubbyholes. I even ended up getting another, smaller, unit which will go in the guest bedroom. It was too good a deal to pass up.
What a bitterly cold, windy day it was! We spent quite a bit of time outside loading and unloading the vehicles. My hands were burning by the time we got inside. Dave immediately started putting together the shelves, while I stood around and tried to look helpful.
I was ecstatic when I put the first scrapbook album on a shelf! Dave probably thought I had lost my mind. I am just so happy to have a place to put my albums, where they will fit and look nice without taking up valuable space on the shelves directly above my workspace.
I spent a good while putting albums, paper, picture frames, etc. on the shelves after Violet went to bed. Dave finally came in and asked me to quit so I could come write this (and then go to bed). I was thinking the same thing, but it was just so hard to tear myself away when I was having fun putting things in their place!
Don’t worry, you’ll get more pictures very soon. 🙂
