New look craft room

Well here it is on my WOYWW this week I mentioned that is was going to be painting the craft room on Thursday, well here it is all done, this is going to be a long post so grab yourself a cuppa.

This is the view looking at the craft room from the window, I could not decide what colour to paint, greens, pinks, lilac were all on my mind but went for plain old white, it does make the room a lot brighter.
I will give you a detail photo and description of each area as we go around the room

 This is the original desk it was over on the other wall, but I moved over to the door out of the way while painting and liked it there so that's it new home, it does give me a lot more floor space
Well I love this carousel from making memories you can get so much stuff in it.this holds all my marvy pens allso scissors etc
This is where I do most of my painting and colouring so I have left all these types of medium over here handy to use

 In these photos you can see all my colouring mediums, You can also see me taking a photo, I have put some mirror tiles to reflect the light from the window as this area can get a bit dark
I these little drawers I keep all my promarkers, I have labels on with the colours in each drawer

 These are my distressed inks called  inkadinks , I love these you can get almost any colour just by mixing them together on a white tile

On the wall next to this table I have some Ikea rods with some punches and the basket holds stickles, glimmer mists, cosmic shimmer sprays, glues , glamour dust
over to the other side of the room .
These were a bargain from our local kitchen trade suppliers, they had a job lot of kitchen cabinets, that had scratches etc that they could not sell, I had all of theses and a few others that I did not need for £20, the work top was left over from our kitchen .
so pop down to you local trade supplies and pick up a great bargain

As you can see the one cabinet was missing a door, put fine for my needs .

 Here I have a few more longer Ikea rails with more punches the basket hold smaller ones
on the end I have my Martha Stewart score board, and fiskars cutter

The jars are also ikea and they hold ribbon and flowers as does the tin at the back it has all my roses in

 This flip down box contains more flowers, lace and small rolls double sided tape

more ribbon in this white basket

 This is where I keep all my beads and findings

This is for all my cuttlebug, I keep all my folders in the blue file , dies in the box also my nessties are stored here, even though I now prefer to use the cricut to cut these using Penny Duncan SVG files
These are on the back wall and here I have all my card and scrapbook papers, the files have pearlescemt card and paper that will go through the printer, they also have my basic white paper, phot papers etc


This one has more card and scrapping paper and the pretty12x12 green and brown  file near the bottom is full of all my SU card and paper.
The coloured pull out boxes on the bottom are full of stamps, ink pads,  heat gun, pwders etc

last thing here is my new chair hubby got it for my this morning as we needed two in the room, LOVE the colour and flowers on it
I am going to have a play with the cricut and cut out some letters and add then to the walls, will show you later what i come up with.
thanks for looking

And here it is cut the letters out of vinyl on the cricut
