A peek at my new craft area (A work in progress)

So this is the project I am currently working on. This is the family room before we bought the house. (This is all the old owners furniture and such). You can see a little nook off the family room that the old owners used as a computer area. This is what we are doing to that little nook:

The laundry area is in a closet just off this area, The washer and dryer have been pulled out of that area so we can tile underneath them. Once the grout is all done we will move them back and will finish off this area you see. We ripped out the makeshift closet that was in the corner and put wall to wall cabinets and a counter top. This will be my craft area. I am painting the cabinets a creamy bone white. the walls will be a Golden Crust color (that's the name of the Dutch Boy color) and the countertops are a pretty Granite look.

A close up of the cabinet area. After we are done painting these we will install new laminate (wood) floors (we already ripped out the carpet in this area). I have some fold up tables that will go in the corner and be pulled out when I am ready to work on stamp projects.
A close up on the cabinet color. You can see the countertops as well.

We hope to be done with all this in another couple of days. As soon as we're done I'll post pictures, and then I can start stamping again! YAY!!

Wow! This is looking really good!

Ripped out a closet, eh? You guys are so good to see what can be done and how it will benefit you!

Wow you've done a beautiful job planning and executing your craft area *and it's WAYYYY to big to be called a little nook ;-) It will soon be the perfect little creative spot!

O.k. yes, it is too big to be a nook. It's actually almost 11 feet (10 feet of dabinets) wide. I think like 7 feet or something like that is the other measurement. So ya, more then a little nook. ;-)
