My Craft Room!

So like I said, I've been very busy working on my scrapbook room....above you can see where I started at, which isn't much lol!  Just bare walls and a couple tables.  So after quite a bit of work on my dad's part (I helped a bit) I now have walls up and electrical installed :)

So now this is what you see from the same view.  I left a window on the right side because the basement window is right there and I like having as much natural light as possible.  Now for the good stuff :)!

This is the left side of my room.  For the desk I used a $20 shelf from Walmart and the top is pre-made from Menards for about $22.  We anchored it to the wall w/ 2x4's and L shaped brackets.  The and green baskets are the perfect size for close to my heart stamps.  I got those at the dollar store.  The green baskets on the wall shelf I got on clearance at Joann's for about $1.50 each.  The awesome ladder shelf that I have my pinter and my cricket on was a gift from my in-laws.  As you can see, I still have a lot of work ahead of me, the ceiling needs to be finished, I have to do something w/ the back wall and the other side of the room.

So far the peg board is my fav!!!!!  I saw this idea on pinterest and fortunately for me the previous owners had left this when we bought the house...score!!!  I put 1/2" thick wood between the holes on the back to attach the hangers to and to also have space between the board and the wall for the pegs.  Then of course I had to embellish it w/ some ribbon.  I hot glued the ribbon to the back and also where the ribbon intersected, otherwise the ribbon would sag.  I bought the smallest diameter round curtain rod that I could find to hang my ribbon.  The buckets I found a Target in the dollar bin.  I still have so much room to hang things!!  I am in love :)!
