My sanctuary

Well it's been about a year since I first started redoing my scrapbook room and I just realized I have never shared pictures of it finished. There's actually one more thing I'm waiting on...cabinet doors. But my husband has been so busy with work he hasn't had time to finish them (plus I've changed my mind a few times about what I want). So I decided I'll show it the way it is now then when he finally gets a chance to finish them I'll show the way it looks :)

View from my desk. Overlooking our yard and trees.

 My most favorite part - my Grandpa's dresser (repainted of course)
 For my desk the right side was a piece we had from Ikea so Jeff built open shelves for the left that were the same size. He built the top out of strips of wood milled together then I stained it.
The crown hook it to hold my trash bag :)
 We actually just built the stamp storage the other day. They were overflowing out of the basket I had them in and it was hard to find the one I needed.
 We made the counter top out of concrete. It's supper sparkly! I added a bunch of glass and glitter to the mold then poured the concrete mix on top.  
 One of my favorite pieces...from a church silent auction.
The windows were off one of my dads jobs in Mission Hills.
 Another of my favorite containers (Hobby Lobby I think)
This is my favorite spot to be! Thanks for looking!

Hi Cherie! I absolutely LOVE your space, it's beautiful. Your work space is just perfect and that hot pink dresser that was your Granpa's is amazing. The color really makes it and it's nice that you have a little piece of him in your room. Hey quick question: the 3-tiered tray you have your inks in, do you know what that's called? I've been looking all over for one but haven't been able to find one.

Hi Norma! I'm not sure whats the offical name :) Mine is from a church craft fair. I have seen some like it at Home Goods and even TJ Max. Good luck finding one!
