Just in time for world card making day!

My craft area is almost done! Minus the curtains it is done. :D I love it! It was a lot of hard work, but sooo worth it! Here is a reminder of what the area looked like before we bought the house. (This is all the old owners stuff) . Now here is what it looks like: (ignore the mess in the family room, that room isn't done yet)
Let's take a closer look at the craft area: On the side of the counter there is about 9 inches where I store my tables and ironing board (and my step stool because I'm short and can't reach the top shelves in the cabinets LOL! When I want to work I can just take those out and stamp and then put them back when I'm done.
When we installed the cabinets, we installed the upper ones with a bridge cabinet in the center so that it would fit my marker and ink storage unit that hubby made me.
The cabinets were originally an Oak color, I sanded them, painted them, sanded some more, painted some more, installed them, installed the counter top, installed the hardware, installed the new flooring (it had been carpeting but we pulled that out and put in hardwood laminate). (My mom helped me with the installation of everything, THANKS MOM!!)
I absolutely love, love, LOVE it! And it's just in time for World Card Making day tomorrow! Join me on SCS for lots and lots of challenges! Just what I need to get my creative juices flowing!
