My craft room was becoming a place that I did not enjoy being because it was crowded and confining. My husband and son have their own hobby of painting models, so space was at a premium in our basement. I forgot to take a before picture, but believe me when I say that it was a mess. This is a picture of my renovated space!
All of the cabinets/counters that are against the wall were an island prior to this renovation. There was also a huge 8 foot table against the left wall that is now gone. This new configuration was accomplished by splitting up the island and spreading it out against the walls. The new island is made up of two Ikea Micke desks placed back to back. There is plenty of room to breathe now and our family of four can work on crafts at the same time without touching each other! I love the open feeling of our new space! I predict that I will be busy making layouts this week! Have a wonderful week and Happy April!
