I was very concerned that adding a craft table was going to make my room impossibly small and that would defeat the purpose of my even wanting to be in this room. But, insanity won out, as usual, and I went with the change.
We don't have an IKEA close by, but my husband goes to Salt Lake City frequently (nearly 6 hours away) and so I gave him my shopping list and he bought the items and brought them home. It took me about a week to shovel through, sort and throw old stuff out. I also did some purging of things I haven't used in the last couple years, let alone the last 15 years and this was the result. It's kind of crowded in here, but it still has a fun and creative vibe...and this extra work space allows me to get kind of messy without becoming overcome with mess.

|This is my old work area. As you can see, it wasn't much to work with but now is a great place for my die cutting. It just worked out great for a swap I did where I had to cut everything in multiples of 30!|
|We bought a few additional IKEA crates to slide into the cubes as drawers. I splurged as well and bought this lock down punch shelf that fits right in there,|
