New workspace for the craftroom today!!!!

I picked up some wonderfulfloral wall panels in "Annies" yesterday and noticed that a work counter/desk that I had been looking at was now GONE! I'd been vacillating between THAT one and a handmade piece I'd seen in an Antique store in Monroe. The piece Mary had had in Annies was Stainless-but it lacked any storage space. I liked the thought of a stainless top-for glue gun/paint, etc. because it would be easy to clean....BUT I loved the one I had seen out at M&M Antiques in Monroe because it had a bazillion drawers, was handmade and had a drop leaf feature on one side.

Well, since Mary sold her piece at Annies, I called M&M and the other piece I was looking at had been reduced to HALF what they wanted for it originally!!! Score!!!I gave them my CC# and Andrew, Chelsea and I headed there late this afternoon to pick it up in his Explorer. (aka the Exploder)

I'll show some pictures soon-it is NOT a gorgeous piece of furniture, but as mentioned, was handmade out of hardwoods on casters and is PERFECT for holding tons of supplies with a large tabletop!

My New Years resolution/vision is to get that craft room so G-Darn cute I can invite ANY and all of you (Y'all) to partake in creative endeavors there!!!

Exciting new addition,,,,,now, how do I partition or curtain off the OTHER half of the unfinished basement????????

Happy New Year and happy Crafting!


  1. Dont u love when that piece u have been eyeing finally is affordable. Good for u. Can't wait to see it and the drapes. mishelle

  2. Have a big heap of fun styling and organizing your creative space. I am always tweaking my studio as my interests shift, so I keep the supplies I love the most closest to me. I look forward to seeing a picture.

    Thanks for your warm and supportive comments on our blog. The address for the new Goodwill Outlet is 2208 West Casino Road, right by Boeing. It is easy to find, even if it doesn't seem a logical location.

    Happy New Year wishes to you!
