Working on the new Craft Room

So I'm finally in my new craft room. It's still a work in progress, but at least it's mostly done. This first picture is of my old space in the study. Very cramped!
Here's hubby installing my Bygel rails from Ikea for my punches. Our daughter lives in New Jersey and Ikea is only an hour away, so you know where we went when we visited her last month.
This table is Ikea as well. It was given to our daughter by a friend when she graduated college. He was moving into a tiny apartment and didn't have room. So guess who got to store it until she found a place of her own? Since she was given an antique dining room table and didn't need it, we made her a deal she couldn't refuse....We kept the table and chairs and in turn we gave her money towards her new sofa.
I found these Jetmax Cubes at AC Moore on sale. You know me, I can't refuse a good deal.
I re-purposed white shelving from our kid's closets for my storage. It's not like the kids are using them. The table is a garage sale find. The totes under the table store my card stock and I had hubby mount a shelf just above the table for my stamps. It works perfect because I'm able to use the shelf brackets as bookends for my stamps. I unmounted most of my stamps this summer and it was the best thing I could have done. The boxes, also from Ikea, on the white shelf hold various papers, envelopes and cards I've completed.
The closet houses wood mounted stamps, 12 X 12 paper and will hold a bunch of other I said, it's a work in progress.
And this corner? This is the pile of stuff I have yet to sort through and store. Eventually I want to have some comfy seating here and a place for hubby's guitar. I also want to find a black and white print of Audrey Hepburn to hang on this wall as well. So thanks for stopping by and seeing my new space.

So cute--thanks for sharing. Love your space--it looks serene and super organized. Someday, I too will have a beautiful place like yours to create in! Nice nice nice!

Very nice space! And if you have a local Target, check for an Audrey Hepburn there. My granddaughter found one at out local target (not sure the price)and it was very big - poster sized, in a black frame. It did have an acrylic cover and not glass, but that may not matter much.
Have fun finishing the details!

This looks so good. I wish I had a corner like that to put some comfy chairs in. I think I'll try to clear something out of my room so I can have that.
