So, as I told you in my last post, I found this great coffee table at our local Goodwill. I saw it and new it would be perfect for my new Craft Room. But, I needed to make sure my guy could change the legs for me and make it table height. So, I called him and he said, "Of course! I can do anything!"
I knew that, so it came Home with me!
But, when he saw it, I think these curvy little legs had him at Hello! It then took me a day or two to convince him of my "vision" as I now call it. He wasn't sure that's what we should be doing with it. Then when I thought I had him convinced, he wanted to make it more counter height. I stood my ground and he finally agreed. Thanks Honey! He is a wood lover and he makes furniture, so there was some doubt going on but, he finally relented and .....
My craft table was born! I haven't decided yet if I will paint it or not. I guess I can always decide later on. Right now, I am happy with how it turned out and it is working perfectly for me.
Perfect width and Perfect height!
Then it was on to this hidden treasure!
Can you guess what's behind this door?
May change to a brighter material at some point, but for now this works!
And when the ironing board is folded down, it doesn't even hit the table.
Thanks again Honey!
And when it's up....
No nasty tape going across to hold it on!
Not bad for $7.99!
At this point I'm getting really excited about decorating this room. I have so much craft stuff around the house and in boxes. More then enough to make good use of this new Craft Room!
~What took me so long to come up with this "vision"?~
Now on to my recent trip to IKEA with this girl....
This cute little two step black stool was only $19.99.
And it had to come Home with me!
It's the perfect height for me to put my magazine holders way up there on the top of the cabinets!
I had one more vision for this room that I needed my guys help with! I know a lot of you DIY'ers could've done this on your own, but I needed him to cut it for me. I had it all planned out. He still wasn't quite getting my vision. But, he lovingly did what I asked him to do!
And now I have a peg board to hang stuff on!
I painted it my accent color of turquoise called Palmetto!
So my "vision" is really coming together at this point. I love coming in to this room in the early morning hours, when it's still dark and turning on my teacup night lite my Mom gave me years ago. It's so warm and inviting! I have more to show you and I hope you come back for the next post for a visit! It may be just my vision but I sure think it's a lot better then being an old dirty forgotten storage room. Don't you?
Thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to hear what you think!
