Ha ha! That's funny. I don't think those dreams are too big. There is an ikea being built in Winnipeg, which is a five hour drive from us. I think I'll make due until I can go there in person and get help designing what will work for me!

Anyone else have a kids corner in their room? How do your kids use the space?

I would like some upper cabinets and closed drawer storage the same as yours.

I think I'm going to have too many things on my wish list than my budget will allow.

Thanks for sharing!
They are at counter height. We bought the cabinets from Home Depot. We lucked into getting them on a good sale when they were changing models. I got a drafting chair from overstock.com for about $75. We bought the countertops from Lowes.

What you can't see is that DH put outlets into the tops of the counters. He put a hole in the back of the cabinet and ran the power up from the wall. I have 4 plugs for each side.

The wand is my Ott light. I have it hooked onto the pegboard so it shines down from overhead.

Honestly, we did the work ourselves. I primed and painted the cabinets. I primed and painted the pegboard. I was DH's assistant for the install. I love having space to work, but I didn't want to break the bank. DH has half of the 10 foot counter with our computer. We also have a computer desk with the kid's computer and our printer on it. This gives me everything I need.

I hope it goes well ... It really makes it a lot more enjoyable to have the room to work and your things at your fingertips.

The 2 on top of the paper shelf are (Queen of Hearts, Alice House) and also the White Rabbit on the left side of the cabinet. The cheshire cat is a bank, and the large white rabbit is a resin sculpture with a working clock. On the shelves are all sorts of various things, tea pots, figurines, salt & pepper shakers, toys, etc.

I love my room. It was the first room that I did when we bought our house. I just wish it was a touch bigger. It's 9 x 9.5. If it was just a scrap room, or just a room displaying my Alice things it would be big enough. But I get into trouble by having both in the same space. The one thing I really wish was I had room for a bigger table. After building up my "stash" now I'm trying to work in 2012/2013 on using stuff and making it smaller. Then maybe I'll have a bit more room....only that plan doesn't seem to be going too well.

LOL I have all that, all I had to do was take over the dining room!
We have a long living room and like to watch TV while we eat so we put the table in one end of the living room. The dining room was just sitting there being unused so I took it.
The only thing on your list I don't have is a sink but the kitchen is maybe 10 steps from the dining room so I just go there.

Here are a few pics of ours when we finished it a few months ago. We have added a few pictures on the walls and used it so it is a "little" more cluttered now!

Scrapbook room

Here is my scrapbook room.

All of the furniture is from Ikea. Since these pictures were taken, I've moved it into a larger room and add some more furniture but haven't taken pictures yet.

I don't know why I read these threads, because all they serve to do is depress me.

I have a little one bedroom apartment and I managed to carve a corner in my living room for a 4x2 Expedit with a desk from Ikea for my scrapbooking. However, it's a vast improvement over the sewing cart I was using.

Someday I will have at least at 2 bedroom apartment (or maybe even a house!) so I can have my own office/craft room.

Wow! More great rooms.

You all have given me grat ideas. I am going to have to take measurements and figure out what furniture I have and what furniture I need. I think I'll do most of my big furniture from Ikea - definitely the Expedit shelves and likely a desk. I have to wait for the Winnipeg store to open!

Maureen, where did you get the paper holders that sit in the expedit?

I agree, I have a 3 bed house, with 2 kids and no space , I have to use the dining room table but have to clear it before we can eat. I would love to build an extension but no money

I'll just have to keep dreaming

Just wanted to bump this thread instead of starting a new one.

We got carpet back in March and slowly but surely we've created a great space for me to work.

I shared my space on my shutterfly share page, if you wanna see more detail on some of it (but I forgot to include the dresser in the corner that houses a ton of my supplies), feel free to check it out: http://dacky.shutterfly.com/ournewhouse/135

Here's a couple pictures of it if you don't want to stalk my share page





The 4 square papers above the shelves are for some Mickey head wall art that we're making over on the swap boards. I can't wait to hang them!
