It is done and I'm in heaven. I love my new space. It just makes me feel so happy and inspired.
I still have a few things that I need to go through and organize but this is how it turned out
My friend Tammy joined me at Ikea to pick up all my fun furniture. Yeah, you probably would have been cracking up if you saw us trying to figure everything out. Thanks Tammy for tagging along with me. Then I got it all home and put it together all by myself. I only needed Daren to help me fit one piece together and give me his engineering expertise in if I should add extra legs because of weight issues.
I choose the Expedite cube shelves and added the feet. We were debating on the size I should get and I think the size I bought ended up just right
I really wanted my work space to be in the center of the room and I wanted counter height so I could stand or sit. I usually find myself standing while working on most of my projects. I fell in love with this table top and really wanted the base but thought I was going to have to settle for something else until Tammy pointed out that I could add the extender legs to give it more height. I love the idea.
On the other side of the room I have a bookshelf and I am looking for a nice comfy chair that you can sit and read in. The kids have already told me that they can lay on the floor and do homework while I scrapbook.
