Now that we have settled in to our new house I have finally been able to look at what we will do with the "games room" that we have. In our old house we had a home theatre set up so we had considered having another theatre room here.
However, I am planning on building up my wedding invitation/craft business and maybe doing card classes or some-such, and the spare bedrooms here are quite small - too small for me to set up my craft room properly like I was in the last house. Plus (as I told my hubby) we could use some of the cupboards for other storage as well - books, DVDs, etc.. You can see I was doing my best to sell the idea!
So ... craft room it is then! A bonus is that there is a door to the outside so I could use it as a "business" entry and not have people wandering through my house.
I have spent a while surfing the internet over the past few months and after discovering pinterest I made up a "Dream Craft Room" board. With those ideas in mind I got four quotes from kitchen cabinet makers and four slightly different designs. I then paid my deposit last week on the "winning" plan. So we stripped out the carpet from the room ready to put in wooden-look lino type flooring....

I refuse to get despondent, though. It is a huge room, and I am going to have LOTS of storage and LOTS of bench space to play on. Hopefully the process will not take too long ... I want to play now, now, now! ;)
