A Busy Day - Room Update

For our anniversary, my sweet husband is moving and redoing my office aka my craft room. There is a long list of reason why we are moving it, but one of my greatest needs is funcional furniture. Here's the history of my crafting space:

High School: Thankfully I had a huge room, and I had a desk that was always covered with my scrapbooking.

College: My roommate Kate and I would drag our stuff out onto the coffee table in the middle of our living room. It was probably the worst crafting space I've had.

Our First Apartment: Chase and I had an extra room that we both shared for an office. He was still getting his masters, and I felt like I needed to try to keep my things arranged in the closet. I so badly wish I had a picture of this set up. I made it work!

Current: I now am so fortunate to have a whole room, but currently I'm using an oval kitchen table that I spray painted. You can see pictures of my current setup here. It has been a great setup, but Chase sure knows how to make me smile by offering to build new storage.

So here's where we are at so far:

Paint Change...


Did I mention that there is going to be way more lighting in this room? I'm SO SO SO excited about that!

I'm off to work so more! I hope you're having a great weekend!

Oh I love the cool tone of the room so far. Is that a gray on the wall? How exciting and what a sweetie you've got!! Can't wait to see it when it's all done! :)

This is SOOO exciting!! I am so stinkin' excited for you! And I know just what you mean about lighting- it is more important that I ever realized. I got SO spoiled by my craft room in Morocco- it has gorgeous light and pale walls and it was so inspiring! I cannot wait to see more of your room! Good luck!!

I'm laughing...my current space NOW is a closet! I have a long folding table in there and a dvd storage system turned on its side. I like to kid my husband that we shouldn't think about having more children or extended guests, as I don't want to give up my closet.

Your new room looks amazing!

Oh please share more pics as it gets completed won't ya?! I'm loving the colour on your walls - such a lovely neutral tone!
I'm still in the First Apartment stage - though my guy has now got his masters I still have everything in the closet because we've moved from one apartment to another!
Have a super weekend!
