Where it gets done.

I don't have a new card to show today,but thought I would show where I sit do make my cards. I love seeing where everyone else makes theres and wanted to share my spot too!
This is actually a work area my husband built with a friend when they did my studio. It still needs to be painted/stained but is functional. The top is a homemade counter top made of furniture grade plywood and trim. I absolutely love it!! It is nice and big so I can spread out...as you can see in the photo.
The counter top is built on top of two kitchen draw units that he found on clearance at Home Depot on one side(the side you are seeing) and on the other side there are four Ikea Trofast units that have there "cubbie draws" in it filled with tons of card/scrap booking supplies. On top of it I have all my current Stampin' Up! pads in the SU! ink pad holder that spins. On the wall is an old wooden cassette tape holder that I got at a yard sale years ago. My DH mounted it and trimmed it out on the wall. Above it he put in peg board so I can hang things and above that are small crates I got at Walmart that he also nailed to the wall and trimmed out. I have my new unmounted Stampin' Up! sets in them. They fit perfect and are easy to get to from where I am sitting. I will take a picture and post that another time.
I will take more pictures and share all the other parts of my new studio another day. I was hoping to wait until it is all painted and totally finished...BUT that may be awhile so I might have to show it before then.
Hope you like what you have seen so far....and here's to more in the future!
Happy crafting,
Gail

Wow. That is simply amazing. Your craft bench looks similar to the one that my husband built for me for Christmas. How funny is that? I knew there was a reason I was visiting your blog. :o)
