Upstairs Furniture Shuffle!

My husband works on averages of 6.5 days out of the week - fortunately a lot of this work is done in our "home office" so he is not an absentee spouse.  I do crafty projects on average of once every one or two weeks (if I am lucky).  In our home I have a craft room... he has a little desk in room that shares space with a guest bed and my bookshelf.  It was not the most balanced situation (although I have been on the benefiting end so I did not mind too much).

I am not the neatest person ever and so my craft room tends to get a bit... cluttered to put it mildly.  After several discussions on the subject, we decided to do the furniture shuffle.  The big desk that I used for sewing and storage moved to the home office.  Also moving to this room is the printer, copier, and various office supplies currently being housed in my craft room.

The bookshelf is undergoing a paint renovation and will be relocated to a new home... (hopefully) to be announced later this week!  (I am pretty excited about it).

I will be adding shelves and rearranging my craft room.  My books (I have WAY too many books) will have to find homes in my craft room (except for a couple collectibles which we will keep on a pretty shelve in the office).

My craft room needs a MAJOR clean up and reorganization.  This is okay - I can handle it.  I know I am super blessed to have a room solely for my projects and it should be a neat workable space so creative juices can flow freely.

Meanwhile, framed pictures were moved to various rooms and minor projects were accomplished.  It was a very productive weekend night!  What do you think?  Any suggestions on good craft room organizational planning?
