My Scrap Room

So my scrap office (cause it's not really big enough to be a whole room!) used to be a run-down sun porch off our upstairs bed room that my husband remodeled for me. He started in October of 2007 and finished in November of 2008!
He literally gutted it, tore down all the walls and started with the bare bones.

Crazy, huh? But it really needed to be done because it was a falling down wreck.

To get to this point, he reframed it, put up drywall, installed new energy efficient window, wired the whole thing with lots of outlets, primed it and installed a new cork floor.

My friends call it my scrap tree house because it literally looks like I am up in tree there :0)

Once the new cabinets and counter were installed, I moved in!

I love my drawers because they have "secret storage" underneath. This is my stamp and ink drawer.


I saw this idea to use a pull out pots and pans shelf for paper storage in BHG an example of Poly Maly's scrap room. It works perfectly.

My American Crafts Thickers drawer!

And the right corner of my room. The counter wraps all the way around the other side. It's a small space but perfect for me! And it only took my husband an entire year, but I am so grateful!!!
