Craft Room: Complete!

For a while now I've wanted to add storage to the craft room.  I found a couple of ideas I liked on this blog and was leaning toward the repurposed china hutch but never found one that was cheap enough to make over.  I went with the bookcase idea instead--three particle board bookcases side-by-side and brought together with a piece of crown moulding for a cohesive look.  My sweet dad offered to help me but I kinda jumped ahead and did it on my own. 



Check out the moulding!  Isn't it pretty?  There are little roses and vines all the way across.  (On a side note:  If I ever hear a kid ask "when will ever use this stuff?" when talking about geometry I will have an example ready! Angles were pretty important when cutting the moulding.)

As you can see I've already put this thing to good use.  It's also serving as some storage space for my business stuff, too!

While we're at it, here are some pictures of the rest of the room.  It's changed a little over the years.

I've also got a big mirror I repainted, too.  It's big and heavy and I'm not sure if I'm going to put it in here.  Still thinking about that one.
