Working on my room

I haven't made anything lately because I've been doing some work in my craft room. We (Steve and I) extended the table back to the wall, I painted it, and I got a couple of new organizing things. Here is the before pic. Note that my desk was VERY messy when I took this picture. This is how it looks most of the time because I tend to wait until it's so bad I can't do anything before I start putting stuff away. I'm working on this because I like it better not messy. Now my desk will always look somewhat messy because I have a lot of stuff and I like it to be around me. Which means it's all over my desk. But this was pretty darn bad and I can't believe I'm even showing it. I took this picture a few months ago and didn't save it in a big size so it's hard to see the detail but trust me, it's bad. By the way that paper is over my lamp because the bulb sticks out and blinds me so I had to make a makeshift shade for it. I'm shopping for a new lamp.

This is after SOME of what I'm doing. I still need to install new pegboards on the back and I'll replace that magnet board with a smaller one that I can hang. The one I have is just resting on my table and when I go to take something off of it, it falls over. Anyway so far I think it's better. It couldn't get any worse. Like I mentioned I added about 6" to the back of it (it was about that far from the wall and everything always fell down the back. But I couldn't get it closer because...well it's complicated. I just couldn't.) I painted it all white and the pegboard will be white as well. I'll be painting that ledge and maybe decorating it with something-probably Hello Kitty. I bought some Hello Kitty fabric to make a chair cushion too. I love Hello Kitty.

So anyway I will update as I go. I'm planning to paint my other furniture (chair, rest of the desk (it's an L shape), sewing desk) white also and then use pink and green decorations. Then maybe I can actually get something done.

Your desk looks nice. I scrap on a table that is in the middle of the room so it would be nice to be able to put some peg board up like yours. Your before table looks like mine most of the time!

Great progress on your stamp space! I wish I could make some progress at my place. I don't have an actual dedicated space and my stuff is extremely disorganized. Good job. Oh, and I'm enjoying exploring your blog. Cute dog, too!

Your desk looks awesome - I had to do a retake on the two photos - it didn't look like the same desk at first.... I too Love Hello Kitty - since I was a young girl - my dad was in the military and I spent a few years growing up in Japan - - that is where my love of HK started...
