Work in progress...

You may have read here that I'm redecorating/reorganising my scraproom...well, I wanted to show you part of the room that is finished so far. My kids just love coming into my scraproom when I'm creating, so I decided to dedicate a space just for them. Hopefully this will help them stop touching all my stuff! lol. We picked up these little lift top desks and chairs from Seth's school for the bargain price of $2 each!! They've put their colouring-in books and scrap paper inside the desks. I love watching them sitting there creating. Every afternoon the kids have asked if they can go in there...well the rest of the room is a disgrace, so NO, not at the moment.
There are little touch lights attached to the underside of the book shelf to give the kids extra light when they're working. I have also placed the red mats under their desks to help stop damage to the carpet when they drop textas and inks and paints etc. Andrew installed the rail and pots underneath the book shelves so that we could house the kids pencils, textas and decorative scissors up off the desks. Its nice to have a clear work surface! There is also a new red bin to go under the desk. I'm doing well buying within my room elements of red, tan, chocolate and white. lol.
Well, that's it so far. My rug is being delivered tomorrow, and I really need to cull some stuff before it goes on the floor. So far I've half filled the large recycling bin! The chair I bought recently just needs a sand and stain, then that can go in place. I've also decided what size desk I want...so looks like another trip to Ikea is on the cards soon. I can't wait to show you the finished room! Hopefully soon!! What does your scraproom look like? Leave me a link so I can check it out.

Well, you've seen the pics of mine already! Love that you've set up an area for the kids too. :) I'm sure they will create lots of scrappy goodness too.
