I have an Office/Craft room/desk

Kelly's Corner hosts a new room every Friday. I have admired all the craft rooms and I will admire I have longed for one for a long time. With 2 teenagers and a 5 year old son there is no room for a craft area. I have been saving magazine articles, pictures, and storage containers hopping one day I would have a craft room as cool as the bloggers in blogland! WELL...I was inspired to figure out a way and work with what I have. I found a desk for $20. This isn't the actual desk but I forgot to take a before pic! Lovely....huh?????
















Remember my bedroom before? It has been in this spot for 3 years!! Hubby wasn't thrilled with changing it. (Furniture was HeAvY!!!) WEll....I needed an area for my new office/craft room/desk so I rearranged. (As I sit on the heating pad!!!)














Here's our bedroom after....




























As you can see, I now have room for a desk and the room still feels roomy!!!










































I painted the desk black and then destressed it! Meg at ,whatever, has the black tiered basket full of ribbon and since I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her blog I have been on the lookout for one! (Forgive the Star Wars toy and chapstick....Zak was helping!) The containers were on clearance at Walmart for $5. I have glue and markers in 2 of them and the third is empty (for now). I need to label them but haven't decided how. I found the lamp shade at a garage sale for $.50 and already had the white compartment thingy.
Notice the chair???? I know...stealing from a child. BUT I needed a chair!!!! I will find another one!!! I am so excited!!! I can pay bills, make crafts, or just play!!! I am adding a quote to the top of the desk but I will have to show that another day (It isn't finished.)

To the bloggers that I have mentioned...I give you full credit but I have no idea how to put your link in the text! So sorry!!! You are welcome to tell me how.... :-$

I'm glad you have a place you can enjoy now. Creativity can be found anywhere...but it's easier when it can be found in the same place much of the time. Enjoyed your blog. Please feel free to visit with me and register for my giveaway this week celebrating my first 6 months in blogland.

Word to the wise: husbands never like ANYTHING moved someplace else. It's somehow in their genetic makeup. Just as it's in ours to want to move things! It looks wonderful and the bedroom so inviting. I love the end of the bed. Maybe you could use a labeler to label your things? Just a thought. Very nice job!

I love your craft corner. May I suggest a chair? I recently put together a craft room and bought a black leather slipper chair at TJ Maxx for under a hundred dollars. It is SO COMFY cause the seat is padded under the leather. I love my chair as I spend lots of hours scrapbooking in it! Check out my blog if you'd like to see it....
