My Crafty Space

Hope you are all well on this Friday evening and looking forward to the weekend.  My youngest daughter came home from uni today for a week.  It is so good to have the family back together for a little while.

I have had a busy week this week decorating bedrooms and having new carpets fitted.  I have been without a craft room this week as one of the bedrooms we have been doing is my crafty room.  It is now all finished and I love it.  So I thought I would show you a few pictures,

This is obviously my work space desk.  It is right next to the window so during the day lots of lovely daylight.


A close up of my desk.


Some of my storage which is another desk I had and an old wardrobe with the doors removed.


And another view looking up the room from my desk.


These are two wall units that I bought about a year ago for my ink pads, embossing powders, glitters etc.


And now for the best part of the room.  I wanted a way to store my dies.  We had a couple of large pictures stored in our garage.  I really didn't like the pictures in them so I decided to recycle them.  I found some magnetic sheet on a roll on ebay so I bought 3 metres.  Hubby then removed the glass from the picture frames and attached the magnetic sheet to the backboard.  I now have the perfect storage and they are fully accessible.




Apologies if some of the photos are a bit blurry.  I now can't wait to get a bit of time to start crafting in there.
I hope you have enjoyed your little tour of my crafty space.

It looks awesome Mags. I love the use of all the wall space with the shelves and think that is such a great idea for use of magnets.
