Craft Room Makeover

Hi all,well this has been my project for the last two days and now i am worn out but very pleased with the end result. I painted the walls green and all the wooden storage that i have been collecting from car boot sales white to compliment and match.
The most i paid for a unit is £4 and thats the tall one to the right of the picture. They all took between 2 and 3 coats of paint though!
My faves are the ink pad storage.

Got these most recently,the one on the left cost me £2 and was a awful purply red colour and the one on the right was todays car boot find and cost me £1,fiddly painting them.

Got this one at the Axmouth flower and craft show for the amazing price of £1 and i even fixed it to the wall myself. You can just see to the right a spice tray which now holds brads.

keep all my card scraps now in the metal drawers and use coloured brads to show which colour goes in which drawer. Hubby gave me the bell for xmas so i can get his attention....lol.

This is my dresser which i love and has all my bigshot stuff,bind itall etc inside along with extra craft stash and my photos for scrapbooking,hope you are not bored yet....lol.you can see my beloved cricut behind my big shot and drawers have nesties,card,scrapboard etc.

This is where i store my stamps and they are all in groups ie animals,mens,floral etc. Got this at the exeter craft show Well hope you enjoyed your little tour around my craft area aka the kitchen. Now i really need to make something there especially as i have some new gorjuss girl stamps awaiting me,x
UPDATE - have noticed if you click on pics to enlarge they are a bit blurry sorry not used to sons fancy camera with lots of buttons....lol and the top pic is the best one to show the green walls,x
