New craft space!!!

My new craft room - left & right!!!  I have been away for a month - visited with my sister for her vacation, visited with my daughter and her family - lots of time with my grandchildren and got a chance to spend some time with my son as well.  While I was away my DH has been working hard creating my new craft room from scratch!!  There's a only a few things left to be done so I took some time this morning to restructure my Gracious Living storage carts so they would all be the same height.  While I was at it I nipped the stops a bit on the bottom of the large drawers so they can be easily removed which allows access to the whole drawer!!  Been meaning to do that for a long time. We moved the whole bank of carts to under the window this afternoon and zipped them together with cable ties to make the whole thing very sturdy.  We hope to get the large shelving unit in there tomorrow morning which will leave the dresser and the file cabinet for the afternoon!!
The left hand side of my room will be used for storage but that does mean that I have to start sorting and culling before anything gets brought into my new space!!
I am blessed!!  I am hoping to be creating in there by the weekend!!

I have been crafting in my craft room - refurbishing cards for donating!  You can see them here and here!  It is soooo nice!!!  I took this photo this morning after clearning up my desk from the last few days.  You can see my bookcase on the left which needs to be filled, my bank of plastic carts, my wooden shelving and my file cabinet lined up against the outside walls.  My desk and the dresser are in the middle of the room and create a island.  I love having everything so handy!!  I am finding it so much easier to just put tools and supplies back in their homes!!
Needless to say the other side of the room is still suffering from clutter so I will have to update that later.
