A Sneak Peek...

Here's a sneak peek of my new Scrapbook area. I inherited the smallest space in the house for my scrapping area. It's just off of the kitchen and used to be a mudroom before the previous owners added another room to the back of the house. It has some funky hard wall covering that isn't paintable (probably from the 1950's or so), but the girls and I have discovered that you can write on it with a dry erase marker and it will come off. VERY COOL! I am going to use the far wall as a message board and cut out some vinyl to outline it. I bought 4 new Jetmax cubes and set them up in the closet with the other 2 that I had and put my expression on top.
This is the other side of the area... The cabinets were already there. I am going to sand and paint the cabinets, the woodwork trim, and the coat hook white.

Tomorrow we are going to get a piece of counter top and install it on the wall and get a stool for me to work at. I am so excited to have my own craft area again. It's been a couple of years and I miss it. Before I had to lug everything out and work on the dining room table and put it all away when I was done. I will post again of the finished project once we are done. Just thought you'd like to see my new scrap area.
