crafty haven

Remember this...

I am lucky to have a space all to my own. When we bought this house I knew that little room would be the perfect "studio" It worked fine for this last year. But something had to change and when Dave said I could redo it if I spent next to no money I jumped at the chance.. I mean come on I'm a thrifty girl. So here is my new space....





Some details...

Paint - leftover from Jett's room - so we had to buy a paintbrush and roller $13
Blue scrapbooking desk - I already owned (got for $20 at a garage sale a year or so ago)
Old Orange crate - $5 for two off PVO
Clipboards - free! (Thanks Dixie)
New sewing cupboard/desk - a piece that was out on our porch that came with the house.. I gave it a coat of paint we had from our old house. It's awesome it fits so much inside and my cutting board fits nicely on top - much better than cutting fabric kneeled down on the floor.
Blue chairs - Given to me by a friend :)
Light fixture - Lamp I bought last year and never took out of the box.. I made Dave turn it into this. LOVE it.
Total - $18

Yea brilliant.
Everything else was in there...
