Long over-due post

OK going back to 2009, I was ranting and raving about finally semi finishing 1/2 my basement & making myself a scrap area... well I wanted to wait until it was exactly the way I wanted it, but we will probably move before that ever happens so here it is.... 
Sorry for the dark photos, it's a basement, not much light.

These are the cabinets that Hubby got for me from work, it was a kitchen display that was coming down because the company went out of business.  The cabinets are a Merlot color and the counters are black w/ silver fleck silstone (like granite).  It came with a short island, you can see part of it in the right hand corner of the photo, it has doors and alot of storage.

My Big E nestled in the corner (I know no one puts baby in the corner, but that's the best place for her) LOL

My little peg board storage bins & a pretty little wall basket I hung off of a s hook

This is the place I do most of my work since I can see the TV & the kids play area (directly in front of my counter.. the crazy colorful curtain to the left is hiding all their toys).  I have two stools because my daughter likes to craft with me sometimes.  The storage spinner that is holding my trimmer I got for $2.50... what a bargain, I just had to spray paint the dividers black (they were hot pink & lime green)  I bought 2!

The paper racks I posted about a while ago, I found them on Craig's List for $40 each (they retail new for $200 each)  The big black shelf was another goody that Hubby brought home from work for free, it was a display rack that they didn't need anymore so they were going to toss it.  Crazy right!!!

There is my little island.  The breaker box is one of the things I need to do something with, just don't know what yet & I want to put a small curtain on that window.  Since I could not hang all the cabinets that came with this deal, I took two top cabinets, put feet on them & put the silstone back splash on top of them (had no use for a back splash) and made my own counter.
So that's it ... my little craft area in the basement, sure as heck beat scrapping on the kitchen table & having to clean everything up in order to do dinner and other daily things!
Thanks for looking if your still with me after this long post!
hugs, Staci
