My Craft Room

This room use to be our sons playroom. It was adorable...I painted two walls with green chalkboard paint and made rolling hills, painted a blue sky with clouds, a big bright sun until you turned off the light then it would glow in the dark and become the moon. One wall was the ocean in magnetic paint. I thought it was darling, but at 12 he no longer thought it was cute, so I moved his things out and repainted everything. We've lived in this house 12 years and this is the 5Th time I have moved it, but I think I'm finally satisfied. I have more room and I'm better organized.

This is the view from the door:

My husband built these bookcases, which I adore because they provide a ton of storage. They were stained a medium oak color, so it took a lot of primer and a lot of paint.

I purchased this desk at Ikea and using it as a sewing table and the small cabinet next to it holds quite a bit of fabric and sewing supplies.

This area still needs to be cleaned up and organized better.

The overhead cabinets provide a home for all my wood mount stamp sets and the clear, plastic trays are perfect for storing / organizing SU card stock.

Yeppers, I think I'm finally satisfied in my new room.
