Craft Room

Well I've made it to the end of the week and achieved almost everything I'd set out to do at the start. The decorating of the conservatory came together brilliantly despite a few hiccups with the tables. I ordered and paid for them a month ago and was told they would be delivered on Monday. Did that happen?? No! Straight on the phone to them on Tuesday morning to be told they'd be with me by lunchtime. 2.30pm came and went and they still had not arrived so back on the phone. They were eventually delivered at 3.50pm just as I was on the way out the door to take Jake to his swimming lesson...phew! It wasn't until I opened them later that I found one of the tables damaged. Nothing to serious but the top surface was cracked. The company have been really good tho and are making another for me. I'm keeping this one till the new one arrives...another relief. Then, when I put the tables up I suddenly realised that there is one big factor I hadn't taken into consideration.......we have flagstone flooring! It's been ok though and as long as I get the tables in the right position there's no wobble....thank goodness. :) So, here's a few pics of the set up.

It's not that big so there isn't much to see however it isn't my main craft room, this is purely for classes. When there isn't a class everything folds up neatly and gets stored in the garage and back comes the dining table and chairs. The storage unit in the corner will hold all my essentials for classes so I haven't got to keep running up and down the stairs. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.

I had a training session today with my downline and we were all very comfy (they were my guinea pigs). The conservatory's adjacent to the kitchen so it's handy for cups of tea and a nice bit of lunch too. Oh and my them! We've lived in our house for almost 7 years now and I've always wanted blinds in this room. How sad am I getting all excited about blinds eh??? lol

So there you have it. My new craft area. Must get these classes sorted now eh?!?!

Thanks for poppin in and have a great weekend. I'll be back soon to show some lovely things one of my downline has made.
