New Craft Room


A good while ago I said I’d post pictures of my craft room when it was finished ... well after a very busy Christmas break decorating ... its not 100% complete but its nearly there!

Before

There really wasn’t much wrong with my room before but it was very dark and I had some serious lighting issues out of daylight hours.

So Christmas Eve, we started stripping ... wallpaper

During

We took the walls back as far as we could, but they were still in terrible condition so we had to re-paper.  Hubby (Mick) did almost all the work ...

The room is so much lighter now and once I get used to the space and move the rest of my stash in (I can’t wait to get organised) I know it will be even more functional than it was before.  We’ve still got some work to do, Mick is going to attach a small shelf going all the way round the room, then build me a new ink storage unit and I’m hoping a ribbon and button one too – then we replace the Ikea 4x4 unit for an Ikea 5x5.

What a fantastic Christmas Present!!!

It looks fantastic. I'm sooo jealous of your work space. Got my dad on the case for building the ink pad storage, knew if I waited for my husband it would take forever!!!!

You are indeed a very lucky lady, I can only dream of having a craft room all to myself, let alone one all sparkly & new & gorgeous! Although, thinking about it, I don't think I have enough supplies these days to fill a whole room lol Enjoy - you deserve it Dawn :D xxx p.s. love you Xmas cards below!
