My scrap/craft room is finished!

I came home on Wednesday, and Chad had moved all the stuff out of the larger guest room and painted and installed the new ceiling fan. The yellow turned out AWESOME! It's so warm! I started moving some things in on Thursday, and on Friday Chad put together the big storage cabinet and put up the shelves. Friday night and yesterday I finished moving in, and we got the guest room set up in the smaller room. I'm so happy with both rooms! I think the guest room is actually cuter and cozier in the smaller room

View from the entrance. Computer area, small printer (the big one is in the cabinet), and all my scrap supplies. On the top shelf is all my embossing powders and cans of craft spray paint. On the bottom shelf are my bottles of Primas and tins holding ribbon. The picture over the shelf is a painting of the sun rising over a green hill that my sister did for me when she was little...I've displayed it ever since she gave it to me.


Sitting area and sewing table. The baskets in the window hold layers of silk flowers. The chair goes to our living room set, but we didn't have room for it in the living room when we moved to this house. It's so comfy, and I love having a reading area!


Closet and storage cabinet. We put daylight flourescent bulbs in the ceiling fan, so it is nice and bright at night. No desk lamp needed! Lighting was a big problem in the other room. I was able to stack all my mounted photos (for shows) on top pf the cabinet. I had to put them in their boxes under the table in the other room and I was kicking them all the time. I was determined not to have ANYTHING under the tables in this room.


Sewing table and entrance. I used the top shelf over the sewing table to display artwork, and I have my patterns and some fabric on the lower shelf. I had Chad leave the door off the room. I just like it without it, and it gives me an extra wall to put up some artwork.


I still have a few finishing touches that I need to add. I want to get cute curtain valances for the windows, or make something to add some color over those blinds. I have a big paper rack that stands on the floor ordered...that should be here around Wednesday or Thursday. Then I'll put my foam stamps in jars and put them in the place where I have my paper trays now. I also saw a cute wall-mounted magazine rack at Jo-Ann that I'd like to put up next to the chair. I'd like to get a couple 12x12 clipboard to put on the doors of the storage cabinets to display my latest pages, too. I just love being in this room! It's so much bigger and happier.

We're having a cookout/party tomorrow and having friends over for my birthday, then Chad said he'd take me out on Tuesday, which is my actual birthday. It should be fun! I love entertaining, and we don't get to do it that often during this time of year. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!
