Craft Room Evolution

Since we moved into our cabin i have been working on my craft room. Here is a little evolution of the room.
This is what it looked like when we moved in. i only got one picture, dumb.
Then i painted the walls purple. again. dumb..
This was the other side of the room.
I had this metal shelf to hold all my junk :)
Then i got this guy.
and i replaced the metal shelf with these bookshelves.

I tried putting the table in the middle of the window.
Then we got new couches so i put one of our old couches in my craft room...didn't work. too big.
Then i put the table next to the door.  Are you bored yet?
Then i got the desk
and painted it green
And finally painted the walls flagstone by Martha Stewart.
AND NOW...
I am finally SO SO happy with it!
I have been collecting things to go on the wall above my desk for a while now. (I'll do a more detailed post on that later)
Here are some more pictures of  this side of the room.
Now i've just gotta tackle this...
i've got big plans :) wish me luck!

Alaine- I love the craft room! The hanging lamp and the pictures on the wall and the color of the desk... Everything about it!

P.S. The blog looks great! I need a tutorial as to how to add the top tabs... I've realized this week I would like to do it!

Oh it looks great! I like how you arranged the wall - you have the "eye" for it! Much better paint colour I think...

Oh I LOVE it! The new wall color makes all the difference in the world ... it looks so open and fresh and energizing now!

We used to have a room in our old apt the same color purple, and while I loved the color all by itself, it was a bit cave-like for a smallish room. We painted it grey and I was sooo much happier with it!

I love the cow! I see them around now and again and think "Should I or Shouldn't I?" and never do. Now I am inspired to try one out. Found an wooden owl at a church thrift, sadly another patron found it before me.

Love how the office/craft room turned out, looks like a great place to create!
