{ Room Updates }

I thought I would update you a bit on my craft room re-do. I have found TONS of great decorating pieces at a local thrift store, Home Goods, Michaels and TJ Maxx. I think that I just may be set in that department ... well, for now! I found 2 great decorative vintage trunks at Michaels - 40% off, too! One is perfect for holding all my Big Shot accessories (dies, Nestabilities, embossing folders, etc) . I also found an apothecary style drawer cabinet at Home Goods. It is a perfect distressed green that I know will be a focus in my room. Home Goods also had a beautifully antique looking globe that even my Hubby loved! AND - an olive colander! Yes! I can wait to fill it with stamps or acrylic blocks or some other really fun thing like I have seen so many other people do (see links near the bottom of my sidebar) and they had this awesome glass and metal star candle holder thing. It looks just like this one, except the glass in mine is Plum and the metal part is a sort of rusty brown. SO perfect! The thrift store I went to had some awesome olive green vases that I just snatched up immediately - they are the *perfect* color for my room. I also found 2 different open boxes that had white pickets round them - just too cute! TJ Maxx had a sort-of rusted iron looking CD/DVD rack that is so perfect for a small space between my entrance door and closet door. I LOVE it when things just "fit" - like they were meant to be!

Another great find: I found a Target Madison Trestle Desk on CRAIGS LIST!!!! Woo hoo! I have an appointment to pick it up Friday night! It sure is a good thing my Hubby has a pickup truck! Actually, I'm the one that drives it most, but he bought prior to knowing me, so I still call it his. Anyway, it is Antique Black, not the Antique White I had originally envisioned, but I tell ya, I think I'm more excited about the black! I think if I had gone with the all white furniture, everything may have been too matchy-matchy (thats the technical term, I'm sure *wink*). Now I'm thinking black desk, white ladder shelves, white chair and then some other piece (the armoire or buffet hutch or whatever) in maybe another color? Dare I hope for olive? I did find a potential piece on Craigs List, but I don't want to discuss it in detail here and jinx it. Anyway, I'll try to update with pictures soon!

I'm way excited!
