When we moved to our present home, I told my husband one of the requirements for me to move was to have a craft room in our house. We had lived in our new home about a year before that dream was a reality. I watched craft shows, scrapbooking and stamping shows, and looked in books until I came up with a plan that I felt I could live and work in. I love my room. It is a little smaller than I would like it to be, but have no complaints. The only time it feels small is when I have more than one or two friends over, which is almost never. Seems people here just do not get together very often to craft, stamp, and scrapbook together. I hope by looking at my room, you may gather ideas for your own special room. I like to stand to work. So, one of the requirements was to have countertops on cabinet bases that I could work at. My husband built them from pine boards and plywood. They have shelves underneath with drawers at the top for tons or storage. He wanted to put doors on them, but I said no I want to see everything to make it easier to find things. I like white because they brighten the room and look so clean. There are flourescent lights over the countertops under the upper cabinets for plenty of work light. I decided how much space between the shelves at various spaces to accomodate what I was going to store on each shelf. That way there is no wasted space.
