Something a Little Different



Promised to post these photos ages ago when I completed the room, however, better late than never!

This used to be my dining room and it used to be terracotta! I saw some ideas in Ideal Home magazine a while back and immediately liked it but thought "ooh, this is going to be expensive", however, then saw the magic word "Ikea" and off I went!

The wallpaper I got in the sale at Laura Ashley a few years back and all the furniture apart from the tall book shelf, is Ikea - got the tall book shelf from a local pine shop. All the other bits and pieces I've collected over the last 12/18 months. The larger drawers are absolutely ideal for storing wooden rubber stamps and punches and the tall CD/DVD units are perfect for my unmounted stamps and Nesties which I keep in CD cases.

It's maybe not to everyone's taste but I absolutely love the lightness of the room and all the "vintage shabby chic" bits.





** Just had a closer look at the photos and noticed my socks on the desk...whoops! **

My SIL put the idea in my head Caz as we have a conservatory off the lounge which wasn't being used for anything in particular, so I decorated it and turned it into the dining room and then decorated the old dining room and turned it into my craft room!

Your craft room is gorgeous. I have our dining room as a craft room and we had to have a conservatory built to house the dining table etc lol
