Craft room WOW NOW!

Hi there,
Have you all been just so shocked at what chaos was in the post before...
well, take at look at how the room turned out with guidance from my friend Yvonne ! I am still in awe room!

The pic on the left is walking into the room and looking on the left wall. My SU ink pads and refills Classic and Craft, ribbon lengths in the orange metal containers, (I plan on leaving the drawers open to see the colours and to remind me of what I have)the wooden tea box has my little lace collection.

Here is a face on pic.

Here is the corner unit (in the corner ;)
I have my pretty Primas housed here and a couple of little vases that I have owned for over 30 years.

Notice the free space on the carpeted floor!

To the right of this wall is the windowed wall. Under the window ledges I have two wooden displays that I am housing my rhinestones, Verve Stamps, Magenta Stamps, fancy larger brads, wooden embellishments, etc.

Here is the other corner. It has the other copper corner shelving unit. On this, I have my background stamps, a few photos, my wooden sheep and my big wooden scissors that I had to have from Pottery Barn a few years ago!

The basket is quite special too, not a Longaberger, but made in the same style by another very talented friend. The lid flips up, like a mini pic nic basket.

This is the next wall. It use to have the plastic craft table piled with all kinds of things. Now, I have my 50 year old end table and it houses my heat embossing stuff. I love this little end table and relish the fact that my husband grew up with this table in his family living room.

I also have a few clay pots underneath on the shelf. I am never too far away from some items in my gardening background.

The third usable corner has my little sewing station set-up.
My sewing machine is old, but she still works and I will be having to oil her up, give her a little tune-up! She is going to be seeing paper, lots of it I hope!

This is the little sewing stuff area. It sits on the floor, backing the rectangular copper Baker's garden rack. My tape measure that you see is as old as the sewing machine!

Here is another pic of the whole wall where my embossing station is set up.

Here are some more pics of the baker's rack with my bird house on top of it. I have some ceramic birds situated there too.

In the wooden/acrylic fronted cabinet are my glitter, Lumiere, powders, pencils, chalks, x-acto knife kit, paint brushes etc.

Here is another pic and you can see my buttons!
Some are hanging in test tubes (they are actually rain gauge tubes, so fatter) some are in jars...

I have a whole bunch of brads there too!

Here is my spinner card rack that I bought from Pottery Barn a few years ago.

Here is the front of my desk where I have my 12 X 12 papers organized by company. They are in the Iris storage cases. I also have my SU In Colours grouped a year per box. They are labelled too! Yvonne brought her labeller over!

The little yellow and white trays are for projects in process. Yvonne and I came up with some rules regarding unfinished projects. I am not to buy more trays....;)

Here is a pic from an angle of my desk.

Here is another
awesome !

Thanks Yvonne! I really don't think that this would have happened with out YOU! I am tickled pink with it!!! Thanks from the bottom of my heart. What a true friend you are!

I am in awe with my room. If anyone has an untidy room out there...don't despair, see what you can do!

Thanks for taking a peek at my big mess and the beautiful outcome.
