My lovely Craft Room

I finished cleaning and organizing the craft room today and of course it is a dark, dreary day! So the pictures didn't turn out the best, but that's ok! I thought I'd show you a before picture...but if you have seen all the other transformations in the house I bet you can guess what it looked like! Floral wallpaper, big bad curtains, and fuzzy carpet?! Yes! You got it!
 (I was a little scared when Mike showed it to me the first time! hahahah)
 Anyway, here it is now
 ( I just noticed that pompom, and now it is going to drive me crazy!)
 Clipboard inspiration wall, pompoms made with tissue paper, and my new and improved pinboard. Remember it used to look like this?
new pinboard!
 I covered it in burlap, added vinyl letters and numbers, and attached a piece of rope for a little clothesline.
 I wanted a little shelf but didn't have any brackets. So, I remembed what I saw on the Martha Stewart Website, and used some ribbon to hold it up! It worked great! I also bought some dollarstore salt and pepper shakers for my glitter, and spray painted a creamer for my pens. (I can't find the before picture but it was floral!) And have some of my free jars holding buttons, scrabble pieces and rocks.
Here's the other side with my new bookcases and boxes. I also have my sewing box sitting on a stool incase some friends come over to craft and they need somewhere to sit!

For the boxes on the top shelves I added some twine and labels so I didn't mark up the box.
easy!
 The left bookcase is dedicated to the scrapbook stuff (which I haven't used in so long!) and the other is for my craft and decor books. (I want to cover those binders)
The other side is clean and boring. hahah
 So, what do you think?!
