You know what is working? My bedroom closet...which is completely NOT working, which is why I'm excited about the sewing room. Confused yet? Me, too.

Which brings us back to the sewing room, because that's where this shelf is right now, holding up some dangerously unstable cardboard boxes full of crap. Yay, crap!
