I have finally mostly escaped the self-destructive habit of playing the ArcheAge game all day and I'm working on my sewing room again. I've packed up all of the hanging and stacked fabrics and most of the stuff in the bookshelf. I didn't really want to declare any progress on the blog again until I had made a lot of progress packing, lest it get derailed like it did last time. :)
I'm hoping to get the room packed up entirely in the next week and get started right away on paint stripping before our weather gets too hot. I'd really like to finish restaining the wood and repainting the walls by the end of summer. I'll also plan on having the floors refinished before I move back into the room.
Right now all the packed boxes are being stuffed into the other bedrooms on the second floor, so it's going to be pretty cluttered and unphotogenic for the near future. It's probably going to be pretty crazy when we have to move all the furniture out of the room for the floor refinishing. (I predict the bed in the guest bedroom will get unassembled.)
It was a little painful to start packing up the stacked fabric as I spent so long making those piles just as I liked them. Ultimately, I ended up buying boxes that were just the right size to fit two piles side-by-side without having to reshift the piles. It should be fairly straightforward to put the fabric right back on the shelves mostly the way they were before.
