And more hooks!

So, in the previous house, I had a craft room and a laundry room.  In my new house, I have a combination laundry/craft room.

It isn't completely set up yet, but I emptied two boxes tonight and got the gift wrapping station set up so I thought I would show you some before/after shots.

I was hoping to slide my sewing machine table under that counter- it was about two inches too high.  My dad cut the legs and replaced the wheels and now the sewing machine and some rolling carts with drawers of fabric all fit under the counter! 

after
The wrapping paper/gift bag pegboard.
Those mailboxes have great hooks- perfect for rolls of wrap and for hanging gift bags!
The three-tiered corner tower was a Goodwill find.  I plan to use it for scrapbooking supplies.  There are still lots of crafty things that need to come into the room- scrapbook paper, cutters, doo-dads, and general fol-de-rol, but overall it is looking pretty good and I think it will fit my needs.  I will need to purge some things and really think about what I want to keep and what I just don't need, but at least the pegboard is up and the room looks like I could be creative in it!

    1. Thank you dahling. You should see the damage I inflicted on the wall behind the pegboard. Not so peaceful, but not as bad as septic problems!
