Good Morning!

Although I am already enjoying spending time in my craft room, I am still trying to finish setting it up.
Every time I have a couple of hours to myself, I am in there tweaking and organizing. 

 Last week I cleaned out the closet in that room. Wow! That was a job that took me all day. 
Since that was our spare room for a long while, it became everybody's "dumping ground". LOL
Well, it is empty and clean now and just waiting to put in some shelves to help me organize my supplies.

Meanwhile, I did a little spray paint project and I have been working on the very empty large wall 
on the left side of the room. Almost finished with it and I will share soon.

Do you remember the little lamp I added on top of my fabric cabinet? It is a very old lamp that we have had for years.

I added to it a burlap flower that I made a while back hoping to change the look of the lamp a little, 
but still not satisfied!

Soooo, this past weekend, I bought a can of my favorite paint, Valspar paint and primer in one.
I used "Cut Ruby" with gloss finish.

And this is what it looks like now.

What do you think?
A very easy 30 minute project. This paint dries very fast!

 Thank you to all who has participated on Tuesdays at Our Home #9
You don't know how much I appreciate you taking the time to come link up every week.
Link party is still going strong! You can find it here.

Enjoy your day!
