My craft room is a mess in these pictures, and you can still see piles of stuff to be put away in the above picture. But I love it! Here is what we did. The play room and my craft room switched rooms. The smaller room that is now the playroom is awaiting it's own transformation. Hopefully in a couple of months I will be able to show you those before and afters.

We took down the panelling and put up sheetrock. We ripped out the old icky carpet and put down laminate wood flooring. My father and brother in law built the craft island and the bookshelf. There is also a ribbon rack that they built, but I still need to prime, paint and get it installed. (BTW... if you live near Kansas City.. Dad and Billy are willing to sell custom pieces...)

We still need to install the baseboards and get doors for the "new" playroom and the bathroom ordered. That will have to wait until after we have paid Uncle Sam though...

Ok.. Project 365. I really have been taking the pictures, I have just not taken the time to post them. So here is what I am going to do. If you want to see my Project 365 pictures just click on the Project 365 album (on the right) and you can see them there. I will keep that updated!

Great Job! The new yellow wall color and the new flooring makes the room look larger.

Ok, gor-geous!!! I can do a lot of damage in that room with scrapbooking, tablescaping layout designs, crafting with my memo boards... Great room for creative minds!
