Check out my new crafting area! I recently moved in with my boyfriend into an old house he's renting from his parents, and our first project together was redoing the office.




Shelves with various containers holding various craft supplies:

I know they aren't labeled, but I know what goes where.

Under the Ikea desk, you can see the plastic Ikea bins that I originally intended to install below one of the shelves, but then the brackets that make them slide in and out like drawers, which looked like they would fit when we were at the store, magically decided to be too big once we got home. I think I like them under the desk even better. They're holding all the supplies I use the most often, and the stuff my boyfriend is most likely to need to borrow, like scissors, staplers, pens, etc. You can also see my wastebasket and the awesome light box my boyfriend made me for Christmas.


Unfortunately, we both neglected to take "before" pics, but here's a "during":



To get a good idea of what it looked like before we started, imagine disgusting carpet that was soaked with cat pee in one corner from the previous renters (how my boyfriend managed to work in there for a whole year is beyond me) and imagine the bottom third of the wall in very dark blue with a train border separating it from the top part of the wall, and imagine that the train border is already half coming down, and under it you can see another border with soccer balls.  Oh, and the ceiling, which you can't see in these pics anyway, was stained from cigarette smoke.  So, yeah, lots of stripping paper, spackling, sanding, priming, painting, ripping out carpet, installing laminate floor and base moulding.  Whee!  But I'm so happy I have a pretty space now. 

His side of the room, well, that's gonna be a whole 'nother project  Smiley :



Thanks for looking!

That looks great!  The rooms sounds a bit atrocious before you started, so you really turned it around.  I would think the bins under the desk would be really convenient, so I'm sure that would work well.

I love your side..I have an unhealthy obsession for Ikea..and have the same chair as you but mine is turquoise. I also like the drawers mounted below. Do they get in the way of your legs when you are working in that area at the desk? And, those vinyl's are very cute too! I think that he should definatly get them.
