Hi, everyone! 
We have been up to our ears in home projects and remodeling for the last month.
We have moved rooms around, built walls, enclosed our game room upstairs with french doors, painted, added crown molding and new baseboards and the list goes on and on...

My husband had three weeks off during the holidays, so we took the opportunity to get a lot of things done. I have to tell you, I think he was glad to go back to work! LOL
There has been a lot of changes around this house in the last few weeks and I will share those with you all soon, not quite ready yet, but, all those wonderful changes have brought me very close to achieving my final goal. Now, I have the space to make my dream come true.
My own craft room!!! 
Oh, yes! I am very, very excited!
No more standing in the garage using my husband's workbench!
I think he will be glad also to get me out of his space! LOL

I have researched and looked at hundreds of pictures for ideas and inspiration and I have finally decided on a design, but at the same time, I am taking different ideas from several other pictures.
This is my inspiration picture.
I found it at Google images.
The top shelf all around the room was the first thing I saw!
And the red pops of color here and there are just so pretty!
I love it all! 
Here is a picture of my very empty room, but not for long!
The dark blue wall has to go!
It used to be my son's room, which we have recently relocated to a bigger room.
Everybody wins!

Painted back to original color and ready to start!
I am already looking for the right pieces for this room.
The white floor cabinets and countertops and the gift wrap center on the wall.
A ribbon holder

   Shelving for craft paints

My own workbench

What do you all think? Can I do this? 
I am sure going to give it my best try! LOL
I don't know how long is going to take me to put it all together, but I am going to take my time to find all the right pieces.
I will keep you all posted as the project goes along and I will also love to hear any suggestions you may have.
I hope you are all having a great week!
