Ikea Shelving in my Sewing Room

My helpers worked hard this weekend! Well, more accurately my husband did. The furry ones just watched us and sniffed boxes for the most part. But they did their job in being cute at all times.

I returned home from a successful Ikea trip Friday night with a trunk full of projects to keep us busy for most of Saturday. We installed shelving, put together a drawer unit, and a wire basket on rollers.  I'm using the drawer unit for all of my little packaging items, tissue paper, ribbon, etc.  I want to spend more time arranging the items on my shelves, but just needed to get things in order for now.  I love arranging things by color, just ask anyone who has ever seen my closet, I'm a little bit OCD when it comes to those things. So that's my plan with the items on the shelves, to arrange by color so it's easy for me to see what I have to work with when packing our orders and photographing our items. 

I must say that I really appreciate how patient my husband is with me and my ikea shopping. He stays really calm when assembling everything and doesn't get too grumpy when things don't go together quite as they should :) I think everyone needs a calm partner when assembling furniture. Hope you had a fantastic weekend and your week is off to a great start!
