So after getting the living room, sitting room and dining room painted, I went to to work on my favorite room!    (My scraproom or Happy Place as I like to call it).  This room is right off the living room, and I painted it a color called Tropical Bay, which is on the same paint chip as the Sparkling Lake color of the living and sitting rooms. The photo above shows the extra desk I have against the main wall and I display four of my fave pages, which I can change out, between the shelves.

This is a closeup of two of the shelves I added to the room.  I got them for $30 each at Big Lots. The desk I paid $5 for at a garage sale and painted it white.

This is a view of the wall where most of my embellishments, etc are stored.  The little white wood box with the butterfly on it holds my 'blingy' embellishments (like Basic Grey bling pieces for example). The baskets hold brads and Initial 3D stickers. I bought white photo boxes on sale at Michaels for $1.50 and they hold my photos (I have WAY to many photos...I have about 10 of these boxes stuffed FULL of pics). 

This is a rack that was purchased years ago by my sister at a garage sale ($5).  I love being able to get to my paper pads so easily.

This is my main workspace. My tv is here (it will eventually be mounted to the wall) and I have a DVD player and my Direct TV box is on a small table under the tv.  The silver board on the wall is magnetic and the little metal containers will hold small brads, buttons, etc. (I purchased them at Michaels as well).

When you turn around from my main workspace, this is what you find...another table which olds my paper trimmer and a spice rack which I altered to hold buttons and flower centers plus my scissors. It was perfect for this and I purchased it for $2 at a garage sale! great find! 

This is my rubber stamp storage...again I purchaased the shelf unit at a garage sale for $2! and painted it white.  PERFECT!

This is my Cricut station...

And my computer/printer station.

I bought about ten of these iron hangers at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $1.20 each and I will be using them to display favorite pages  across a blank wall.

Here is my latest Stickles and Alcohol Ink storage.  I bought a Scrapbook plastic case at Michaels for $8.99 and an insert that fit perfectly in the case (the inserts are meant for the white block storage drawers sold at M's) was only $3.99~oops! Looks like I need anothe one!

That's most of my room. There are a few other things haven't shown you but when I get pics taken, I'll post! Thanks for looking!
