Confessions from a Craft Room- part 2

After our trip to Ikea yesterday, I stowed away so much stash into the new boxes and finished off another side of my craft room today.
I am owning up to the "before" picture of my mess and I am overwhelmed with the result. I keep walking into the room for just another look! What a transformation, I'm sure you'll agree.
Last night I made the 4 note holders for the cupboard doors from pieces of old cartons and a  metre of red fabric for £3.99 from a certain Swedish store. I fixed the tapes with large gold brads. 
This was a fabulous idea from Jayne and brings the room together. The large boxes on top of the cupboards were a bargain... reduced to £2.99 from £10.99, and no prizes for guessing from where! The whole room is being done on a tight budget but it just evolved into the red colour scheme due to some key items already there. 
As my dear late Mother would have said " and how long will it stay like that?" but I'll do my best to keep it straight, I promise, as it has taken Jayne and me so much work to do it. Couldn't have done it without her help and enthusiasm.
Well, still two walls to complete but we're getting there... watch this space............


PS Neet's blog candy offer finishes tomorrow (midnight) but there is still  time to wing it under the wire before it's drawn on her blog... hickydorums.
