Update on the Scrapbook Room

Here is the most recent picture of the desk. There is more things on it and some other things have been done to the room. This will be the last post about the office until it is completely finished. We have to finish painting the rest of the trim in the room, move in some furniture, put in some shelves and add my accents such as curtains and such. At least I am finally moved in to the office and its officially wonderful!
I love the decorative piece of trim on the edge of the desk. I saw it lying out in the garage because he had trimmed it off of a 2x4 so I had him put it on before we painted. I thought it was a nice little touch to add some pizzazz.

A new card

I made some blank stationary for me to use. I love them! I have a set of 10 of these cards. I plan on making more.

Card Holder

I found this tutorial on Amy's blog. She does some amazing crafts! Thanks for the great inspiration Amy! Her blog is: http://lynnskie3.blogspot.com/

Check it out!

I made two more of them. The others have a baby blue and a light pink flower. One is for mail and the other is for small items and notes that I either need to type or file. I plan on making more! Thank you so much Amy for the wonderful tutorial!

Note: the only items here that were CTMH was the white daisy cs, watermelon marker and silver brad.

Paper Bow

I found the instructions for this on splitcoaststampers.com
It's a great site for tutorials!

I used CTMH's "Silhouette" paper for this bow.

Yet another update on the scrap room....

Tons of progress has been made tonight.

The plexi-glass is in! Trim is being put on!

I've already started to tape off the trim so I can paint it. I'm super stoked!

The other picture is of the shelf that I store my inkpads and other random things on. It used to be wood, but I painted it white to match the decor of the room.

Update on the Scrapbook Room

Another update!
The desk is almost done. Tonight we anchored the cabinets, installed the top and covered the top with brown fabric. We're going to be getting the plexi-glass either tomorrow or Friday. I'm so excited! It's nearing completion!
We still have to add the trim and curtains to the desk, as well as the keyboard tray. (It will be on sliders.) I'm wondering if I should keep all of the pictures on the desk, or if I should cut some things out with my cricut and place them in there instead. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Update on the Scrapbook Room

I am so excited! It's nearly completed. Last night Kevin stayed up until 3 AM to get the floor done. It looks amazing! I have to finish priming the cabinets today and possibly start painting them. Its all coming together! *Keep in mind the base will be white.*
