Busy Working on my New Craft Room

{UPDATE: Click Here to see the finished room}

Sorry I've been MIA from my blog this past week as I have been putting the finishing touches on my new craft room and working on a few projects. I actually have been super crafty but I can't post it yet cause I dont want the recipient to see it prior to me giving it to her.  :)

As for my new room..... awwwww my new favorite spot in the house! My previous and still existent craft room is upstairs in our loft. It is a large loft that I shared with my hubby (home office). I started taking over the space by adding more and more pieces of furniture and storage for my endless craft supply. We decided it was time I need to take over one of the extra bedrooms in the house and have an actual craft ROOM. It has been hard for me since I LOVE being in the same room as my hubby all the time. Even Brooklyn (our 4 year old) has her own art/craft desk in the loft. Having my own room means I'm away from him, not Brooklyn cause she'll join me. :) We ended up deciding the extra room downstairs would work out best if I have ladies over to join me in my new room or have a Close To My Heart workshop at the house.  

So then the journey began.... we put in new wood floors (actually laminate wood floors), we painted (1 dark aqua wall the other 3 light aqua), white 4" base boards, new wall unit cube storage, large table/workspace and a ton of new decor. I'm soooooo happy with my new room. The only remaining task is the wall decor. I am waiting for my wall vinyl to be finished. I sent it off to the printing company last week. It's actually the exact font and wording I use in my blog/email signature (see below) which is live love craft. I just love it and thought it was so fitting for the room. That will be placed on the side with the cubes. The other wall will have thick large letters that are being covered and decorated by me! :) Its a project I have been working on.... Hopefully I'll have that completed soon. I have to head to San Diego this weekend for a baby shower so I will have to run in ikea and grab a few things. I am on a mission for the dignitet curtain wire and ring clips to showcase my recent projects.

OHHHH and my entire room is in black and white damask print. *love it* It's been a favorite print of mine for a while now I just didnt know if it would work in the room.  I think I'm addicted to shopping for anything damask now. I'm sure you can tell from the recent projects I've posted but I now have a ton. It took me a while to come to the conclusion to do the black and white damask. I was set on my wall color and the dark wood floors before I picked the decor. So then it was tough decided if the black and white would work well with the floors and wall colors. I bought a ton of bright fun colored decor one weekend, got home set it all out (before furniture was in) and said "uh uh" and took it all back the next day. So then I bought a few damask things and did the same thing and said "that's perfect", then the shopping mission began.

Be sure to check back soon ... I'll be posting pics.
