Before we moved to this house I tried to sell my old pine china cabinet and table and chairs, but there were no takers. Same with my old Sears Kenmore sewing machine table. At first I was really disappointed and was on the brink of giving them away but lucky for me when we found this place all that furniture could be put to good use in my craft room. The hutch has become a display cabinet and storage area, the table and chairs take care of seating and work space and my old sewing cabinet has become my Big Shot Work Station. Here are some views of the large space.

One of my many projects planned for this year
is to paint this room and I've got my Color
Caddy out trying to choose the perfect match. Hmmm, will it be Old Olive with Very Vanilla trim? Cajun Craze? I know one thing is for sure I will be using a couple of the Definitely Decorative Wall applications, as I absolutely love them. If u haven't had a chance to take a look at the new cattie check it out here, it's really inspiring.
The smaller room which I call my prep room, holds all my supplies and has a small table that acts as my prep station. I can cut my cardstock, use my scorepal, emboss and clean my stamps in this area, which keeps my classroom area neat and tidy. I love all the shelving as I can find everything at a glance. On my Wish List for this room are a large bulletin board above the prep table so I can put all my bits and pieces that inspire me; a new paint job; and a better filing cabinet. What do you think, isn't this a great little room?
I still have lots of organizing to do in this room to get the best fit and at some point will put in a nice two drawer lateral file cabinet to hold my card stock, but for now it works for me.
