My Scrapbook Room

We finally got my Scrapbook Room into decent shape! After removing the mirrors from the wall from the previous owner's work out room...it has now become a girly girl scrapbook room! :)

I took my $5 can of "Oops" paint that I bought at Lowe's. When I bought it, Cuong kept telling me that it was a big mistake and he thought it was a stupid idea to buy. He's eating his words now! Best $5 I ever spent on paint! It turned out really cute!

So it's a light pink on top with tan on the bottom and a white chair rail.

We bought the furniture at Ikea a few weeks ago. So almost every night we've been painting, doing the chair rail or putting furniture together.

I'm really pleased with how it all turned out. I still need to put up a little tool/paper scrap holder that I got at Ikea also. Stay tuned for that.

Here is a view from the doorway looking toward the back of the house/end of the room. I have my desk with my Clip It Up on top. We currently have an old tv that you can see on the bottom left of the picture, but that will be coming out of the room.

Here are my 2 matching bookcase/cabinets. I really like the closed area, the open area and the glass cabinet portions.Close up of the cabinet

This is the paper holder that I bought on Ebay for a mere $50. The people were located in Brea, so it wasn't too far of a drive. The guy said that his niece has a scrapbook store up in Big Bear, but she's down sizing and needed to get rid of a few items. He had another rack, but it was twice as tall as this....and I just couldn't imagine it fitting into the back of my Scion!Behind my desk, in the corner, I got this little cabinet/stand for my printer. That way it doesn't have to take up room on the desk, but is close enough if I need to plug in my laptop to print out some journaling!

Hope you like it! Now I just need to put some finishing touches on it. I have some wall rub ons that I've been holding onto for about 2 years, so I think it's time to put those up somewhere!

Love the color combination. The cabinet looks green to me. Did you paint the inside? I see you are using your clip it up . . . hmmm, you still have room on there for more supplies. Time to go shopping. Mine is so full, I have like 3-4 things on each clip. LOL.
