As promised I am posting pictures of my new craftroom. I think I would have been too overwhelmed to get it done if it weren't for Carmen! When I did move she said I would have it all set up before she got here and I told her "I ain't touchin that damn thing until you get here!" and I was true to my word. We actually had to empty it out before we could set it up.
This is what you see when you first walk in the room and let me tell ya I am loving the color!! I think it is called Cajun Spice or something like that. The room was already painted this olor when I moved in. Carmen and I tried a 6 foot table but then decided an 8 foot was better and would give me more room *okie thinks we always want more room* for my machines, work space and spinners, which you can't see in this photo. As you can see I still use my Napa Valley Cassette organizer for my stamp pads...totally love that thing! I had found another one at Goodwill a few months back and snatched it up for Carmen and she was able to take it home with her *okie wonders if Carmen got hers hung up yet*. The black drawer units hold different embellishments, tools, etc. I think I need to relabel the drawers now though since they are no longer correct.
When you look to the right at the door this is what you see, my workspace table that Carmen brought to me and before anyone asks it is from Ikea *okie so wishes she had an Ikea close* and my big Expedit unit that holds the majority of my 12x12 paper. On the right hand side of the picture you can see some of the shelves I have on the wall and there is a better picture of them further in this post. There will eventually be a doorway put in to the right of the blue office chair that will go directly into the dining kitchen area. This will be convenient for when I am cooking and crafting...because we all know how much I LOOOVEEE to cook *okie wonders if people will pick up on that sarcasm*. The white drawer units under my work table has my themed paper in them. I wasn't sure how I would like the TV up that high but it doesn't seem to be too bad and doesn't hurt my neck looking at it, which is what I was concerned about.
Here is a better picture of my work area. I have my 8.5 x 11" cardstock behind my work area and with the huge closet I have I was able to free up the 6 cube unit and right now I have my Cuttlebug in one slot and then various items in the other cubes. I opted to put my Bygel bars for my punches above the cube units because it seemd the best place for them. Obviously I can't buy any more punches since I am out of space...oh wait I do see space for maybe two more on the top rod on the far right hand side!
This is the view from the corner by the Ikea unit. I was able to fit the white shelves I used in my old craftroom next to the door and then under it I have my sewing cabinet with my heat press on top of that. Never mind the tools on that table right now, I am keeping those handy while I am still trying to arrange things. To the left of the shelves is the door to the closet. The closet measures approximately 4x8 feet so it has a lot of room for storage and I will post pictures of it AFTER I get it organized a bit more. Carmen and I put up a Closetmaid wire shelving unit in there so I could have good storage space and it is going to work nicely.
Oh and BTW, the leather black curtains were already in the house and I decided to keep them for two reasons...first it will help block out sun from fading my paper and secondly it make people wonder what kinda kinky shit is going on in my craftroom! *okie falls out chair laughing* So there ya go...that is my craftroom now and I am loving it! I will make sure to post pictures of the closet once I get it arrange in a half way decent manner.
