Okay, thanks! I'm thinking I want a bright craft room with light earthy tones. Since right now it's kind of cold, dark, and it smells like dust. xD I need to prettify it. I just searched the IKEA website. I went to the site once before and they had some nice things. I'll check out the Home Depot's website and then Lowe's after that.

You mentioned the word "IKEA" and I drooled a little.  LOL  love that store.  A 'nifty tip' whenever possible shopping there use your debit card, at the bottom of your reciept you'll get a 'certificate' good towards your next purchase that equals 1% of your current purchase.  It may not sound like much, but with small purchases 'here and there' I racked up enough certificates that I saved $15 (which was 2 sets of DVD sized storage boxes to hold 60 of our movies)

You'll find the best deals in home depot by going in and wandering around.  I was in ours earlier and in the clearance 'endcaps' they had 3 sets of cabinets (like you'd put under a sink) for $32.50 each, they were normally $198 each, I also bought a bunch of those rubbermaid wire shelves in there under the same kind of deal for $2.25 each (normally $22 each)  so it's always a good idea to wander in and just look around to see what you could use for different projects Smiley

I sense that you love IKEA? XD The nearest one where I live is almost 5 hours away though. =( So I'm forced to order online with their stupid shipping and handling prices. x3

Mhm. I looked at the actual Home Depot site and was like, WOAH EXPENSIVE. x) At least compared to IKEA it is. I can't wait to get shopping and working on the room! For now We'll probably just shove all the boxes that are in the room in the coal shaft. I don't really NEED that area for now. I've also got to start earning more money... Darn, that mean work! x) Thanks for the tips and the effort that went into the pictures. Everything makes sense when you make a picture of it. xD

i wish i had that much free space for a craft room! right now i think my free space consists of about 5 by 12 feet, and the rest gets spread out on the kitchen table and everywhere else you can imagine. btw, gothchics, i'm sooo coming to you when i get a place of my own and letting you design the craft room!

I know! We've got some super designers here on Craftster! I love both of the layouts that they came up with. I'm going to combine them both. And I like the idea of a shelf to display my future Poppets.  Grin

Say, I don't have a yard stick or any thing that I can measure with. Anyone have any ideas for things I can use to measure with? Like maybe a baseball bat is # of feet? I could use that or soemthing. =3

Well a piece of paper is 11" long.
It might take awhile to measure.
But it'd be  funny to say "My wall is 22 pages long." lol
