Ok it's not completely done, but I have my space ready to use! The only thing left is to add a chandelier over the table, and we just painted the floor for now. I am also going to put the SU *Create Definition* decal on the empty wall above my counter. It's been over 4 months since I have had all my stuff unpacked, and I can't wait to get creating, but I thought I better do the photos now, since it won't be this tidy again for a while!
This is my end of the basement family room, the photo below is the view from my *work* space. I love that we can all be in the same room together, each doing our own thing. I will do most of my creating at the counter, but if
I need more space or have friends over to scrap, we can use the table. And then if we have company I can stash my tools away and use the counter for a buffet and the table for kids to eat at or play games.
I found the set of cabinets on craigslist for just $100 for both, and the 12' countertop was a stock item at Menards for $50. The left cabinet was placed away from the side wall to cover a poorly placed pipe in the floor, we cut out the back to fit over it and it's all hidden away now, plus it left a handy space that just happened to fit my punch drawers! I had the bookcases before, but they are from Ikea as well as the baskets and worklamp. The dining set was another craigslist find for $150 with 8 chairs! Overall a few super deals made this a great stamping area! Our entire house has a cabin-y decor going on, so I wanted to make this area fit in, but still be functional...I think it works well!
Anyway, we leave for vacation Monday and I will be back in the stamping world like crazy soon after! I can't wait to dive into my new space and start sharing creations again!
