The Decrapification Project - Part One - The Arrangement

Decrapification (de-crap-if-ic-a-tion) The term coined by Rosamaria on Ravelry Thrifty Knitters group meaning to declutter a LOT of stuff (from a room or area.)

I liked it so much that I decided to use it for a blog post (or 2 or 10!)  Used with her permission.

Would YOU like to know what's going on in my sewing room?

Well, suffice it to say, there is a TON of stuff in there (as you might have guessed from the title of this post.)  A few of the Ravelry Quilters  and some of my other quilting friends know that I went a little crazy during the middle of April.  One decision got the ball rolling on a MAJOR clean-out of my studio.  More about that in a later post!!  For now, all you need to know is that some reorganization is taking place and this post (and others to follow) will share the process with you.  Because it will DEFINITELY be a process!!

Step One - Lose the bed.

HERE is the bed (because the space used to double as a guest room):

This sewing machine cabinet is sitting where the bed USED to be:

Here's a wider view:

Step Two - Find the floor.

LOOK!!  There really IS a floor under there:

Step Three - Move the tables.

But FIRST...

Step Four - Clear the tables.

Otherwise, the trip across the room could prove to be problematic:

The tables made it safely across the room (with only minor incident.)  Once moved, the farm table in the foreground needed to be tightened up, as it was wobbling from end to end.  Not so good when you have expensive sewing equipment sitting on said table!  Enter, Mr. Fix-it.  Thanks, DH!!

Until next time...
Plan carefully!!!


  1. I've been going through much the same. It always requires relocating one thing in order to put the next thing away. Good luck on your progress!

  2. Oh, I see some good things happening with this effort (de-crapification is a great word, too).

  3. I'm going to be following your Decrapification Project closely because that needs to happen in my house, too!
