I hope everyone is having a great Sunday!
Ours is going to be very busy, so I am putting together this post really early in the morning and setting it up to publish by itself later on today when we are all a little more awake. LOL

It has taken me a while to be able to show you all the new cabinets my husband built for me for the craft room.
We had to special order the hardware and that took some time and while we waited, 
I painted, painted, painted :) but they are finally finished!!!
I fell in love with the ones from PB, but at almost $300 a piece and needing at least four of them, 
there was no way I was going to spend that much on setting up the craft room.

I am happy to say, he was able to build me all four cabinets plus counters 
for the  same price of one of the original cabinets. Big savings! 

I am almost done setting up the room, so meanwhile, here is a little preview of my new cabinets. 

And these are the PB cabinets.

Pottery Barn 
 Pretty close, right? 
He did an excellent job and worked so hard on building them! 

 I will be adding some labels this coming week.

 What do you think? 
Thank you to my husband for all the hard work he put into building these cabinets for me. 
I will put them to good use for many years to come! 


By the way, one of my friends and blogger emailed to let me know my blog doesn't look right on her screen.
She told me about an inch is cut off from my side bar.
Would you guys please let me know if anyone else is having this problem?
It shows fine on my computer screen, so I don't know what can be causing this problem. Thanks in advanced!

Tuesdays at Our Home link party will be live tomorrow night (Monday) at 8:00PM Central Time. 

Hope to see you all there!

Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
