Finally- My Revised, Revised again CRAFT ROOM!

Ok friends!
I am so behind in showing you these photos!
As you know I redid my room after our floors flooded. 
We got another set of new hardwoods but this time the darker, hand scraped ones. 
Since the plumber knocked huge holes in my wall, I got to chose a new color. This is Restrained Gold by Sherwin Williams. It is so similar to the White Raisin I had before but toned down a bit.
Ok here goes the tour! 
It took me forever to put this room back together!
Not a thing was damaged but we had to pack up the entire first floor of our house so they could redo it.

Come on in for the tour!

Ok, we are walking in from the Living Room through the French Doors. This is actually my Dining Room!

 This area is directly to the left when you come in.
I keep my Big Shot Dies and just a few stamps and carts here on the shelves. The puppies love the Ottoman or customers can sit there and browse through catalogs and booklets of cards

Same wall- more Jetmax Cubes but I took away the tall shelf I used to have on the right side

The right side of that wall - but with the tall shelf removed and a little working area for me, to keep track of my Clubs, etc
I put a bit of the pre-school art but not all of it.

This is the section in the middle of the bulletin board and the tall shelves. I took the drawings my kids had made in pre-school down and now I have a display of some of the cards we will make at the next workshop

This is a little island I made for my daughter. She can open it up and put the stools underneath. My husband shortened the stools and painted them. We got them at Steinmart.

 More of the island with my work tools that I can not do without!
Big Shot, Table Top Trimmer. Grid Paper Pad, and my Simply Scoring Tool! 

Other side has my daughter's papers and things

Next comes my desk. It is opposite of the French Doors in the Bay Window. Do you see something funny in this photo!! 
Comment if you do please!

I can't forget my favorite wall with the self portrait my son did of himself and me many years ago!

Ok, across from that is my desk. It is the opposite wall of the shelf and row of jetmax cubes. To the right are the French Doors into the Living Room.
This is actually neat. I am a messy worker!

Ribbons and Inks and Punches Oh My!
Everyone asks so I may as well say now, I got the holder the inks are on several years ago. They had cloth drawers in them. I can not find anymore but have searched! 

Here is another holder on the left and I covered the cloth drawers with "Chalkboard" Contact Paper
I keep my ink refills in the drawers and punches and embellies on the top

 Punches and more stamp setsThe rods are from Ikea and the Stamp holder is from a Garage Craft Sale!
I got another rack but honestly use it for a toilet paper holder!  
I will show that one day on my Simply Sunday Posts!

Close Up

There is a little slide show over on the right but it was a few revised times ago! Here is a video from a past remodel last summer. My room is not like those now!
 Feel free to watch!
