Craig and I stayed home this weekend and we made some progress.
We actually had a very productive weekend overall. We:
- cleaned the garage
- put up some Christmas lights (more about that later!)
- watered our trees (it's been such a dry fall- we thought our trees needed a good drink of water)
- washed windows
- dropped off things at Goodwill
- and - we worked on my craft room!
So here's what the room looks like now:
There was room for a bookcase. Hurray!
Here's my dresser! There are 5 nice wide drawers. I might need to add handles to the lower drawers eventually. But don't these two pieces look nice together? I am thinking of adding casters to the little cabinet, so I can move it over by my new work top when I am using it.
Isn't this cool? I am so excited! The next step will be to finish off these surfaces. The sides and the toe kicks are just made out of pressed board, so we are going to cover it up with beadboard paneling. I plan to paint the base cabinets black, and stain and seal the top using a light colored wood stain.
I also need to go shopping for a stool, since this surface is higher than a desk. And I will need a work light - maybe on that mounts on the wall.
I am loving the new look of my craft room, and can't wait to start being creative in there!
