I've made a bit of headway. I am replacing my old ugly shelves with the nice white Billy Bookcases from the yarn shop. These are much sturdier and are also nice looking. Here are my spinning, weaving and dyeing magazines, after being placed on the new shelves.
And a reminder of what that corner looked like, before.
And look what I found during my excavations. I was wondering where my natural dyestuffs and essential oils had gone.
