I'm sure I'll edit this as I do more and more to my craft room.

My husband and I bought our first house when he was on R&R from his second deployment to Iraq.. *Well, More like we picked it out and he had to return and I had to buy it and move in by myself!*

So, I quickly set up my craft room, and it turned in to this pretty fast!

*I'll say sorry now for the blurry cellphone pics, I didn't feel like getting the DSLR out*

Well, That was 1/4th into it.

Now, For the finished clean slate!

My sewing area.

Shelf that has my zippers, paint brushes, elastic, and buttons in cute jars. Among other tools. Trunk (that is over 80 yr old mind you) that has extra linen for the guest room. tall plastic shelf has scrap booking supplies and the other has misc sewing stuff.

Both boxes has fabric, then cabinet has fabric as well.

Not even half of my fabric neatly organized. *rest is in the boring closet on boring plastic shelves*

And that's my clean slate!!

So, I was at walmart and walked down the school supplies isle. Remembering I'd been meaning to get some cork board for my notes..

It came with 4 of these.

Covered w/ some cute fabric I found at walmart!

Now, It's cute and functional wall art!

I plan on painting the wall's a pale yellow or a light grey, putting up things for my tools and threads.. etc etc.. Just gotta get around to making it!

Thank's for looking, There will be more to come soon!

Heh... kudos for getting BAH = mortgage. I never had the chance when my husband was in... stupid OCONUS deployment *grumble grumble*

But anyway... nice improvement! I <3 that trunk. And the corkboards are so cute and snazzy. What did you use to hang them? Just a nail in the wall?

It came with adhesive pads to hang it, but woke up this AM and 2 had fallen off so I might have to get a little more creative if they don't stay back up.

Love what you did with the cork board!  I have some of those pieces, and I'm going to copy your idea.  Thanks for sharing!
