Craftroom Progress

I am linking up with the Metamorphis Monday party at Between Naps On The Porch
There is progress being made on my craft room. Unfortunately it involved painting...can I tell you how much I HATE painting? I think the look on my face says it all. (I am pretty brave for even posting this picture but I wanted to make a point, I REALLY HATE TO PAINT.) This is my wonderful husband slaving away installing the flooring. He was such a trooper and got the whole floor laid in about eight hours yesterday. I can't say enough about what a good sport he has been by getting this room together for me. I am so blessed.

It is starting to take shape here. I love how it looks.

At last, it is complete. I don't know if the pictures do it justice but it is beautiful.

Here is another shot. That is my husband's grandmothers tea cart in the corner, it is really cute, I can't wait to put everything together in here.
Here is a picture of a very happy me. Progress makes me happy.
Now all that is left to do is put the trim back up.
Hopefully I will be able to post the room put together this week. I am also doing a garage sale on Saturday so I'm not sure how much I will get done.
