My Scrap Room Is Done

I have had my own scrap room/work space for years. I swapped room with oldest son some years ago and really, the Thomas The tank Engine didn't bother me to much.

Slowly my space was invided by the rest of the family: DS9's creative stuff, hubby's old computer stuff etc etc. And this is what it looked like late this fall:


Mess, mess, mess...

I decided to kick everybody out and to renovate the room. The desks have been following us through a number of houses and moves over the past years, customized every time to fit the new room and they were really in a bad condition. I decided to keep the shelves, picked out the wall papers I wanted and moved all this mess out in our living room. Then I started tearing down the old wall papers.


Horrible, isn't it



I'm no fan of renovating - I hate the mess that follows. But I was happy when it was done.
I'm home officing in periodes and it's great to have a desk so big that there are room for both scrapping and having an extra computer in there. Right now I have an out of home office, and I'm happy all the space can be used for creative activities only.


Desks from IKEA

I just couldn't resist this wall paper

The old shelves didn't work out with the new colors and furniture, so I headed back to IKEA to by new, deeper ones. I deceided to put up doors on the shelves to make the room have a more uniform look.


I kept the black chair - it's my dog's favourite place

I admit it, I'm spoiled.

And the rest of the family? They have equaly sized rooms, even the hubby, so I don't feel much sorry for them...


Are you as spoiled as I am?
