Once dubbed "craft room", now "design room" revealed, part 2

In light of my hatred for the word craft, this room will be referred to from now on as my design room.  Much better.  And thank you Lisa for your help with that. ;)

So today I've got pictures of my armoire.  I love this piece of furniture.  If you don't have a Hobby Lobby near you, I am so sad for you.  I got this baby there for about $600.  It's HUGE.  Like 8 ft. tall.  And solid as a rock.  And gorgeous!  I love black distressed furniture.  Anyway, it once housed my china, because this room used to be my dining room.  Now it houses my computer and is where I do all my photo editing.




Eventually I will have a shelf built in above the Mac, but for now - on one side I've got a mini bulletin board housing some cool business cards of friends and fellow photographers...



I also have on either side these galvanized bins a la IKEA that keep some of my supplies organized.



Pssst, see?  I am not very organized.  The drawers on bottom of the armoire hold more creative stuff - paint brushes, ribbon, various types of glue (lol), and some wrapping supplies.




And a cute little hook for my scissors - out of reach and always where I can find them.



Next up?  All the decorative details.  I left nary a knook unturned.  But first, you gotta see what I did with this cool candle holder.



Do you love it?  Yeah, so do I!  And so does my cat, unfortunately.  She eats every plant I bring into this house!



Today I am linking up...

That is a very cool candle holder! My cats eat all of my plants (and flowers and moss and twig wreaths...) as well. The armoire looks like it offers some great storage and style as well.

Oh my goodness, so organized! I have small space, and since the Christmas rush, I haven't had the time or energy to re-organize it. I need to!

Please feel free to link them up at Talented Tuesday on My Frugal Family!
