My Scrap Room In Progress

I am very excited to finally be getting my own scrapbooking space!  For years, I have been scrapbooking on our kitchen island and it is always a pain to bring out all the scrapbooking supplies and put them all back again after.  I will be so happy once my space is finished!  Here is a pic of the scrap room in progress!  It looks messy, but it was a lot worse just a few days ago!  This was my dh Jeff's woodworking shop (in our basement) but he is building a new workshop this summer, so I get to take over the old one!  Jeff started laying the floor today and I really like it!  I told him he should just leave the peg board that he had all over the walls when it was his shop because I'm sure it will come in handy to hang up tools, embellishments, etc.  He just finished insulating the room too.  Jeff is installing maple cabinets all along the back wall and the left side of the room so there will be tons of storage.  There will be an island in the middle of the room which will be my main scrapping space.  I have the paint picked out for the walls (green) and the countertop will probably be a blackish granite look, but it will be a laminate countertop.  I still haven't picked out the countertop yet, only samples!  
I will be posting pictures of my room's progress, and hopefully the whole room will be finished soon!


  1. Oh you are so lucky. I can't wait to see it all finished.

  2. Oh you are going to love this room when it is all finished and scrap friendly! It is so nice to not have to put everything up. If you want to stop for the night in the middle of a page you can leave it right where it is and come back to it the next day! I am very excited for you!

  3. The mess can’t be helped. But I’m sure the refurbishing didn’t cause you too much trouble. Anyway, the project wasn’t a huge overhaul. How’s the scrapbooking room so far?
