My Aqua and Light Pink Craft Room/Office

Hubby had the most brilliant idea the other day, one that I had been suggesting to him all these years; to turn our guest room into my crafting space. He was wonderful enough to build my Kallax unit from Ikea, and call to order my paper organizer while I was sleeping. He also painted and built my beadboard. I now have an amazing place where my favorite colors can exist together.

Let me take you for a tour...

I hung my mulberry flowers, Prima stamps and Tim Holtz embellishments on the beadboard. To keep it from looking like a store display, I added some of my favorite items on some of the hooks, like the gigantic paperclips and the aqua-colored butterfly that I got from an online swap. I keep my embellishments, lace, Tim Holtz dies, embossing folders, and shimmer sprays in a black dresser from Ashley furniture.

More teal and shades of peacock blue from my table runner and Steampunk hat...

Respect the Raskog cart! It houses more mulberry flowers and some art supplies and pens on top.

Here's my Chinoiserie-style piano desk in black lacquer and mother-of-pearl...Above it is a print that ties all the colors in the room quite nicely.

I keep my Cricut cartridges in an armoire from I placed some 3D papercrafts inside it because they make me smile.

My Kallax cubes from Ikea hold my paper packs, loose paper, some of my stamps and paper punches. The decorative boxes contain my embellishments and more stamps. I have several plastic bins in the closet, but they are kept out of sight.

This is where I plan my day, and dream...

This room is like a love letter from hubby. He knows that this is something that will make me happy, and he made it happen.
