Fabulous February – 2020 – #SoCS (Un)pack

For our Stream of Consciousness Saturday Linda has given us (un)pack to play with.

By far the biggest thing I have had to unpack is my ScrapBox Workbox.  I was so excited to get it and when it was delivered it was on a pallet which they left in our driveway.  We had to wait until our daughter went away to college for the room to be empty enough for us to assemble it so for a few days all the boxes were in the living room! 

So many parts!
Once Rachel left, we were able to unpack all the pieces and sort them out.

It took two days for my husband and I to put it together, but that is because his back is tricky.  I did most of the down on the ground work and he held pieces together and made sure everything was in the right place.  It was easy to follow the directions and we had everything we needed.  

I was really lucky to get this model on sale.  They don’t make them in this style anymore.  They’ve changed the name from Workbox to Dreambox but I’m perfectly content with mine. 

Almost done.  The last step was to put all the shelves in.

And then to pack it full with all my craft supplies!

But you know, when we built the studio in the backyard, I had to unpack the whole thing, take the doors off and carefully move it, reassemble it and pack it full again!  Here it is in its new home. 

In between the original set up and the move to the studio, I changed bedrooms so actually it has been unpacked twice since we put it together!  I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.

What’s your biggest pack or unpack project?

    Wow! That was a lot of work. It looks great! You must be happy to have all your supplies so well-organized. Our biggest pack/unpack project was when we moved into our house. That was in 1996 and we sure have accumulated a lot of junk. πŸ˜›

      We moved into our house in 1996 too! I was 4 months pregnant at the time so I couldn’t really do much lifting. I would definitely hate to have to move the whole house again. Purge for sure!

  5. Amazing pack. I could do with a “pack” like this. I’ve got heaps of scrapbook stuff and no place to store it neatly.

    Janet, Your scrapbox workbox is amazing! Perfect for organizing! I am on a constant purge of stuff around here. Between daughters and friends we often trade items and shop in each other’s closets. Progress, not perfection πŸ™‚
