Craft Room Dream Come True!.....Well almost.

Pin It
The minute my 18 month old climbed out of his crib I immediately found him a toddler bed, on Craigslist, and moved him into our 3 1/2 year old son's room. (You will find throughout my post how thrifty I am, but only to splurge in other areas)

Well I settled for a craft/guest room until my boys turned 3 and 5 in Oct 2011, I envisioned bunk beds for what seemed like years. Summer 2011 I began planning, the guest bed would become a bottom bunk and the room would be MINE!

AND THEN..... I found myself crying over the beautiful things at the Stampin' Up! convention, over eating and being exhausted. These were clearly signs of having a great time. About a week later I found they were also signs we would be welcoming baby boy #3 March 2012.

I wasn't about to let my dreams go to the wayside again. I am all about compromise. So here is what I have come up with.

My husband built the desk. (I painted it Chocolate)

Ink Pad Holder: Tape cassette holder $3 thrift store.
Ribbon/embossing folders holder: Baskets $3 IKEA, fits in slat wall.
Shelving (Home Depot) is on paint grade slat wall (4ft square $25) which I painted Baja Breeze (Home Depot color matched the card stock...Love it!) to match the room.
Spice Rack Turner: Holds brads, buttons, beads.

White drawer: IKEA Reg. $120, Craigslist $30 each (sooo excited about this score. I had been looking for 6 months) Worth the wait! Punch holders (new/old, big/small): IKEA $2 for small, $3 big. They also hold those ribbon baskets!
I originally found the shelving (on the right) that holds my stamps at a yard sale for $1. Then my stamp collection increased. I found out later it was a shoe holder at Target, made by Closet Maid $25. (The large sets go on top)
So in the end...did you imagine the other half of the room would look like this?
I truly believe in the saying "Good things come to those who wait". So while I wait for this little one to arrive. I am enjoying every minute in this room.
