My new home!

Well, it's about 90% done. The new 'office'. I've been down in the basement for the past 4 years and my sweet husband agreed to switch spaces with me. A quick trip to IKEA to pick up the pieces I'd been eyeing and a gallon of paint... I now have a new home.

and I LOVE it!

Here are some pictures of the new scraproom. It's not a huge room. About 11x12. There is no closet so I had to make all my storage count. Before you ask... the rug is from target.com. :)

(don't mind the boxes... I am kitting for upcoming classes)

Turning to the right a bit from the door

love this drawer from IKEA. I should have bought it years ago.

bottom 3 drawers

top 3 drawers
I put down drawer liner stuff to keep things from sliding around. 
Drawer organizers from Target

Lazy Susan from IKEA

Unity Stamp Storage
this took me 2 solid days to organize

I think I need a few shelves over the TV and desk that holds my sewing machine and Cricut. Plus I need to pick up 2 more chairs. IKEA was out of them when I went down. 

If you have any questions about the room I will answer them in a post soon.

Anyone want to come scrap?!

Have a good one!

Looks so fabulous! I love the color and your great big desk!!

IKEA has a great shelf...think it is Billy that would be great over your tv area (I soo wish I had a tv in my room!). I have one over my main desk (right above my Cricut) if you want to have a look (http://jamielanedesigns.blogspot.com/2011/01/welcome-to-my-space.html). I also have shelves with jars on them to the right of my desk which are all IKEA and one of my favorite pieces in my room!

I am so envious of your craft room. It is beautiful.

Jenny B in Indy said...

Love it! LOOOOVE your rug!

I have alot of the same IKEA furniture in my room. Only, yours is WAY prettier with your yellow paint and organization.
I discovered the same drawer unit at IKEA last Fall around the time school started. I checked stock online b4 we left Indy and they had 26 in stock but by the time we got down to Cinci, they were ALL gone. I was so bummed. But we ended up getting one a few months later. LOVE IT! Wish it were a bit wider though, layouts and 12x12 paper are a tad bit too wide.

Thanks for sharing your room! I hope you will teach a class at A's sometime this year, I'd love to meet you!

Have fun kitting for your class.

Scrappin' With Kimmy said...

FABULOUS!! So crisp, clean, and organized. I really love the table. Do you remember the name of it? IKEA, right? Also, are those DVD cases for your Unity? I am in complete craft room chaos right now! I have been holding off on buying anything until I have found the perfect storage solutions before I invest in furniture, etc., and then it end up not working. Your space looks exactly like what I am wanting. Think I may hit up IKEA and Tar-jay this weekend! thanks sooooo much for sharing.

erin said...
