A Pink Room Makeover

Hi all!  Happy Wednesday!  My kids are back to school today after being off for Jewish holidays.  Yesterday was a complete wash out — all the way around — we had awful weather, lots of wind and rain and I was sick.  I plopped on the couch while the kids tried to keep themselves busy.  I’m sure they are very happy to be back in school.  LOL!

Anywho, I have a mini pink room makeover.  I’d been having some issues with my desk — half was taken over by my daughter, I couldn’t find the right chair, we were always walking into it, etc.  So a few weeks ago, my husband made me a new desk. Yup, I’m pretty lucky! Now, I liked my space before, but now I LOVE it!

Here’s the before shot:

Here’s the after & now:

Look how much bigger the room looks!  The desk is made of 2x4s for legs and cabinet quality plywood for the tops.  This is actually two pieces to allow for a better ease of moving.  I painted it black and we topped it with acrylic.  The acrylic was our answer to any potential paint stickiness.  I LOVE it!

This is my “main” work surface.  I now have space for my scoring board, my paper trimmer and all of my tools that I need within reach in a nice clean, organized spot!

The other “half” has my Cuttlebug — another tool that never had a permanent home.  Next to it is my 7 Gypsies Library drawer that now holds my dies.  My tins that I originally stored them in couldn’t handle the weight.  We figure the entire desk, including wood, paint and acrylic cost $140.  The paint and acrylic were the main costs.

Hopefully now that I’m almost organized, the creative mojo will start flowing!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
