As a new years resolution, the boyfriend and I decided we were gonna try and be super organized this year to keep out pack rack's nest of an apartment clean. So, you can imagine my excitement planning the trip to IKEA and laying out the whole apartment. Which also meant - much needed storage for the craft room!

We made the desk in August ($20 project!  -- an old door and six legs from Home Depot.) We painted the craft room in September and this is the first time it has been workable since.... I am super excited!

Take a look! The rest of the apartment will be posted when I get all the rooms clean... UGH!

Very cool. I love the look of it. I wish my craft room looked as nice.

I love the colors, it is the same colors I am going for in my space!  Although, my space is not as nice as yours!  Great job, can't wait to see the rest of your apartment!

It looks great!  I have almost the same color on the walls in my craft room.  I also have the same ikea bookcase and I just love it!  It holds so much!  I like the towel-holder thing, is that also from Ikea?

I love the colors, I'd never be brave enough to paint a room like that, but it looks fantastic! With all the little pictures it looks really cozy.

I love your uber-long door table - what a brilliant idea!

I am so, so jealous right now. That is nigh on the BEST CRAFT ROOM, heck, room, ever.

Did I mention how jealous I am?

Because I am.
