my little slice of heaven...

come inside and i'll show you my gorgeous new scrap space. My little slice of heaven! Where i think i could happily live forever and not ever leave. Well at least until the kids need to be feed, or nature calls, or the kids game has turned to tears, or...
well you get the picture!
It's taken a long time to get here but it's finally there with all credit to my dad for installing the bench top, painting and assembling as well as a myriad of other little jobs.
Thanks Dad you really are the best!!!

I bought the bench top from a seconds lot at a kitchen place it's just left over pieces of benchtop
 that are too small for whole kitchen but perfect for me!!

And my Ikea 'Expedit' shelving cubes that i'm am totoally in love with!
I haven't competely figured out what will go where yet and i need some more baskets or
boxes of some sort the put in the shelves.
My husband is a bit jealous of this he now wants one to store his gazzillion economic books.
Sorry buddy but there aint no room for them in here!
The old filing cabinet in the corner got a paint job as well. I can thank mum for that one, well not
for painting it that was Dad AGAIN, but for talking me into painting it rather than pitching
it because it didn't match anymore.  Thanks Mum. :)

When the kids are in bed i can sit and scrap and watch telly. Dad even put in a
new shelf for this tv i bought at Aldi.
He also put in the open cupboard under the bench for the Sewing and Cricut machines .
Thanks again Dad!!

Not too sure what to put on the walls yet. Pictures? Artwork? Maybe a shelf above the desk?
for now it's where i blutack my LO's and photograph them.

If you want to see what it used to look like you can check out this post.
