New craft room!

So finally I have some piccies of my new craft room!! Firstly I have some before shots- if you look by the window, you can see where I've been testing different colours of blue paint! Can you guess what colour I went for?! I wanted to go for a blue colour scheme because I think it's a calming, relaxing colour and the blinds that were left by the previous owner reminded me of deck chair material so I got the idea of a whole beachy type atmosphere with the carpet being the sand. Are you with me or am I just mad?!

This is the back wall- with the same tester pot colours!! And a big pile of shelving for my hubbie to build!!

And ta da!!!! Here is my craft room painted and finished!! I chose the really pastel blue in the end but I've just realised in this piccie, it looks REALLY pale! Lol. In this piccie, you can see my new desk from Ikea. Those of you with good memories will remember my shelving (Ikea) from my old room which had a desk attached to it but we decided to keep the shelving and ditch the desk because I wanted a desk in the middle of the room because this room has such an amazing view (see later pic!) The room had a fitted wardrobe in it which has been brilliant as I've stored my painting gear in there and the other half has office paperwork in but is kept out of view, nice and tidy for once! On the right hand you can see my stamp drawer from Ikea from my old room and on top is my little photographic studio from Amazon so that it's near all the natural light of the room.

This is the back wall - hopefully you can see the pastel blue of the walls a bit better!- with my fabbie shelving. I'll show you this in more detail on my next post as I've changed things round a bit since last time.

This is a piccie from the other side of my craft desk and you can see my other desk on the left.

Here you can see how much natural light I get in here plus you can see my other craft desk and chair better. The desk and chair don't exactly go but they were my beloved Dad's from his office so I had to have them. Also I wanted another desk so that I could have my sewing machine and guillotine out all the time so that I would actually use them!!! You can also see above the desk is a little flat screen tv that hubbie bought me- lucky me!!

Here, look how much light comes in!!

And finally this shows you the view from my craft desk, overlooking our garden which backs onto a golf course!!! Will nosy me get distracted?!! Course, I will!!!!

So, what do you think? Am I spoilt or what? I'm going to start crafting again hopefully in the next week or so. Don't forget to pop by soon and I'll have some more shots of how I've organised things. Do leave me your comments as I'd like to know what you think. Take care for now xx

Wow Steph your room is awesome! I've just moved into the bathroom...sounds mental I know but we have a bathroom & a shower room in the caravan & up to now the bathroom has been constantly full of stuff so I decided to move into it properly. Can't have a bath now just showers but it'll do till we move out..which is hopefully soon!!
Hope you are well. We've all had that nasty bug too. I was so ill hubby had to hold me up on the loo!! I was barely conscious!
Hope you are ok now.
