Today, I am sharing with you some updates on what I hope it will be my craft room very soon.
This project has taken us a while since we have made many changes in this room.
I did start with an inspiration picture from Pottery barn.
I fell in love with this room from the moment I saw it and since the layout is very similar to my space,
I knew this was the way to go.

The space I am using used to be my son's old room.
Since then, we have moved his whole bedroom to a bigger room and, although he is not living at home any longer,
he sure enjoys more space when he comes home on leave.
We did start with doing some painting.
Even back then, he favored the Navy colors. :)
And when that was done, we replaced the carpet with hardwood floors.
Since then, there has been a lot of building going on in this room.
First, my husband built the top shelf and brackets that wraps around the room, just like the PB picture.
I painted the white cabinet that we used for so many years to store the kids Disney movies.
This used to be an Army filling cabinet that my husband brought home about 30 years ago.
They were throwing it away, but he had a vision! :)
He cleaned it, added molding to it and built a door and it sure served us well all these years.
Now I am using it to store all my craft paper and supplies.
You can still see in the inside what it used to look like.
I have also redone a $5.00 chandelier that I found at the Habitat store.
Made a new balance for the window
Little by little I am organizing my supplies with some wonderful items that my husband bought me for Christmas.
And I used another white shelf I had to store my fabric stash.
But the best part is, my cabinets and counters are almost finished!
My sweet husband has built them for me just like my inspiration picture.
Now they just need to be painted, add the hardware on and they will be ready to be installed in the craft room
Meanwhile, I keep organizing all my supplies and adding little touches to the room.
Can't wait to be finished and start enjoying this space!
I will be back tomorrow with the most viewed post of Tuesday's link party.
Until then, I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Thank you for stopping by!
