For the last two months, our family’s basement has been under construction. If you have ever had any work like this on your home, you know that it is a mixture of chaos and anticipation. Since I started stamping, I have been working on my dining room table and my things have been stored in the office area. Needless to say, that meant that the dining room was always a mess with half-finished projects. My husband gets the patience award for putting up with that for so long! So when we decided to finish the basement this fall, we agreed that a craft room was needed. YEA FOR ME!!! So, here is our progression:
We started with a basement that was completely unfinished. This is a picture of the area that was to become a small bathroom and the craft room. The “wall” on the right was removed.
When they got to this stage, I started to get really excited because I could visualize where it was going.
And this the the finished result!! As you can see, I’m still in the process of moving in. I’m figuring out what storage I need and I’m sure I’ll be moving some of the shelves around to accommodate that. Once I get everything in its proper place, I’ll take another picture to show you what I came up with.
I have to say that I always like seeing people’s craft rooms and ideas so I am really excited to share mine with you. For my local stampers, we’ll have classes here from now on! This space make me so happy and all of my January projects have been created here already (and I just moved in last week). Starting next week, I should have lots to show you. The two teams will be back and I have all the work that I did back in November that I can show you soon too! Lots and lots of inspiration for the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs!
I hope that you have a happy and safe new year celebration! See you next year!
LUCKY YOU! What a gorgeous spot…you’ll be even more creative in this serene area! TFS! Happy New Year! I might just have to drive to VA to see this myself!
Wow. love it. Is it ok if I post pictures of your room around my house to give my hubby ideas. So far he thinks the basement should be his man cave not my craft space. MEN
