Craft Room Make-Over

Warning - Photo intensive post...

So this is what I started with, two tables that were very sturdy and only $25 each, ok amount of space, but NO storage, I had my TV, and clutter everywhere. It was really hard to work because I couldn't find anything. Plus, there was no inspiration that made me say... oh I want to be in here. Let's just say it isn't that way now.

Before #1

Before #2

Here are the in progress pictures.

First with the painting:
During #1

Then with building the unit:
During #2

Then with the finished product (ok, fine almost finished - I still have some stuff to do and will post with those updates later):
This one is a little messy at the bottom because I wasn't quite finished, but it had the good view of the room:
After #1

From the other angle, and as you can tell I am already using the room:
After #2

The ribbon holder (still needs to be finished with the black rods), Laci's Mother's Day painting that she gave to me, and then one of the mirrors I made:

After #3

The fourth wall which this is all you will see of it until I finish it up, it is still a little cluttered after scoring that major stash of scrapbooking goodies:
After #4

Inside my closet with a small (the rest of the closet is a disaster) view of some (not all) of the stuff I got from the scrapbooking goodies:
After #7

My TV stand with a picture of my hubby when he was little and my little Laci when she was a baby:
After #5

A view at the movies that are on constant replay in my craft room and I never get sick of them (they are listed out below the picture so that you don't have to squint to see them):
After #6
* Her Best Move
* Sleepover
* Stripes
* Stick It
* She's The Man
* Private Valentine
* A Cinderella Story
* Bring it On Fight to the Finish
* Legally Blonde 1&2
* Can't Buy Me Love
* Ever After
* The Trouble with Angels
* Sydney White
* One of the Cinderella Movies (with Whoppi as the Godmother)
* What A Girl Wants

Anyways, I hope that you like it. I LOVE it, and am so thrilled with the space and storage that I have in there.
