A new room in the making. :)

So it is FINALLY going to happen! Yea!!  I guess looking pitiful finally worked. LOL! 

My DH has started redoing my scrap room for me. I am super duper excited.

This has to be done in stages, of course, which will be hard, but it will be so worth the wait. For starters he is building my storage unit. It will be 8 feet tall x 6 feet wide. It will sit in front of a window, so I won't have the full size for storage.

The room measures 13 x 12 feet. I want cabinets, shelves and a counter also. I know how I want it to look, just hope it can be done. The room has a fireplace and two small closets on either side of it. The other wall has a window, then the other wall has a window and the other wall has the door. So it has some challenges on each wall. 

I am leaning toward a shabby look for it. I like soft pink and green. The cabinets will be white and the counter will probably be a tan or travertine (SP?) color. I have real hardwoods and want a nice area rug also. I am going to make Lacie her own scrap area. This way I could spend some daylight hours in there. Right now I keep her out of there because she is into everything. LOL! 

Once the storage unit is up, I will post a picture. I am so excited this is happening now. It is a real dream come true!
