Craft Room Progress

Last night the dude and I humped the new project table from the back porch where it was delivered up the stairs and into the craft room. And can I tell you how much I love it? I LOVE IT! I spread myself over it and hugged it. The dude, less impressed, said it will be cluttered in no time. Which, of course, it will. I had even been thinking of moving my crafting mess from the dining room table up to the new craft table. But after a remark like that, it can wait.

So the happy news is that I didn't have to spend $1099 on the Pottery Barn table. Oh, no. Just before I left my mother's beach house, I dug her catalogs out of my car and brought them in. She made me eat breakfast before I went, so I leafed through them. And what do I find in the Grandin Road catalog? Project table; hundreds less. Shipping was still a bitch, but I can only imagine what the PB table would have cost to ship.

I think I'll be doing some decorative painting this weekend. That still leaves the curtains. But we're getting there!

You know you're killing me with the suspense of seeing the room, right?

Kool. In black or white? Extra baskets or just six? I have a huge folding cutting table, but until I get the boxes off the sewing room floor, I can't really open it up. I still use the dining room table to cut fabric and a plastic fold up table for the sewing machine.

Once I have the curtains or some painting, maybe I'll give a sneak peak to resuscitate poor Michelle.

I got it in black and just 6 baskets. I'll be putting my magazines in the bottom cubes.
