Craft Room Update (Video)

Hi Everyone,
Lots has been done in the craft room, but it's a total mess.
I've been working on painting and organizing the past week or so and have made some progress, but I  still have a ways to go.

I have a video update for you today, but before we get to that I wanted to share with you my plan for the room. Only you, my blog followers will get to see this...

This is the original plan we first came up with, but I have made a small change to the island.
The cabinets will be done in a painted grey finish and the counter is a quartz top that is mostly white with streaks of grey in it.

I had planned on doing both sides of the work island as drawers, but after a little thought I decided to go with drawers on one side and a door on the other. The new island space gives me plenty of work room and lots of storage. I have it designed so I can work from either side of the island.

This next photo is just a side view of the room. It shows how I have seating on both sides of the work space. 

I have a few weeks to wait for the cabinets to come and then I'll have another week or more for the counter to be templated and then installed. I think waiting for cabinets is worse than waiting for them in your kitchen. I don't remember feeling like it was going to take forever when my kitchen was torn apart.

So now for the video: It's short and sweet, but stay tuned. I'll have more to come with organizing.

 Have a great day and I'll see you back here soon.
