Default check out my new craft space!

Hi!
After 3 years of sitting on the fence, I finally took the plunge and had someone design and build me a workspace that I can store my craft stuff in & create. It has a pull-out table so that if I have to stop my work, I can immediately shove the desk part in, close the drawers shut, and attend to my kids (4 of them, all young). I'm so excited! This gives me plenty of storage and confines everything to one space (important b/c we have a smaller sized home). It's similar to some armoires being sold out there, except that mine is a bit larger and has gliders on each shelf, so that shelves slide easily.

Just thought I'd share....thanks for looking!

WOW! The pull out table is such a good idea and great to have all your stuff in the one place ... speaking as someone who crafts in the kitchen and has clobber all over the house!!!
BTW, I don't have any but I read on another post that you should store your markers horizontally so they don't dry up.
Happy Crafting and TFS

That's neat! That will work perfect for me in our huge bedroom in our next house. Right now, I'm upstairs and I feel so isolated at times.
