This project began May 12th, 2008 and the most recent photos were taken in Late June.  My husband and I did it all ourselves.  If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them.  This is my first post to Craftster!!! Newbie in the house!

HERE IS A MUCH NEEDED BEFORE PICTURE:


These two pics are of the very beginning of the project.  It was a blue room with a floral border.  Upon taking down the wall paper we found out that the ENTIRE room (including the ceiling) had originally been pepto bismol pink!







These next two pics are post-painting.  We painted everything except the trim and then we ripped up the carpet in order to lay down laminate flooring.







This photo is after we put down sub-flooring so that the laminate flooring would be even.




This photo is after we laid the laminate flooring. It came out looking even better than I'd hoped. Also, in the photo, you can see that we have a lot more remodeling than just this room going on.





This set of photos is the preliminary "finished" set.  We installed most of the shelving. We assembled the desk. We moved a good number of my crafts into the  space.







Then it took about 3 weeks to get all of my crafting supplies into the room, and have them organized into their respective places.  We picked up 3 more book shelves and put up 2 more cabinets.  I made all the curtains myself.  The art on the walls are a collection of prints from various (and talented) Etsy artists.

That's it!!


UPDATE (7-22-08):  Wow!!! Everybody is so so pretty for commenting!!  Y'all have made my day!  I'm incredibly flattered.  Thank you!

UPDATE (7-23-08): I feel completely overwhelmed with the response to this post!!! I have (and will continue to) read all of the comments and have loved every single one!!!  I would invite you all over for coffee, mario kart, and crafty goodness if I could!!

In response to one comment requesting a recent 'in action' photo, and asking whether or not I am this neat all the time:

I happen to be schizophrenic when it comes to neatness.  My bedroom is a disaster area, my craft room a haven.  My studio DOES have it's moments of crisis, but all in all it needs to be organized and neat for me to be able to craft without feeling guilty for ignoring the mess.

HERE is a photo that my husband took of me one week ago.  While trying to get a good "Crafter's Portrait".... We had a black out!!! So we lit some candles and I got out a bag of goodies I'd just bought from a treasure of a place called "PA Fabric Warehouse".  I wound up the trim until the lights came back on.
