Craft Room Remodel - and prize giveaway!

Every year my kids take off for 1-3 weeks and spend time with the grandparents. That leaves me and hubs plenty of time for dates and special projects. This year my room was chosen for our special project!  Yay - what a blessing!

I found some new goodies (clear stamps, stickers, etc.) to give away during my remodel. If you'd like to win them, become a follower and leave a comment. If you post this to your blog or another site, leave another comment for more entries! I will pick a winner on Sunday, August 5th!

Here is the before - soooooo embarrassing!

 ...and after!
New paint (Aqua Frost) and new floors!  
The Ikea wardrobe was repurposed as my closet organizer!
Ikea sheer curtain hides my wardrobe baskets filled with goodies!
Painted my black paper holders from Jo Anns.

Here are the Ikea Billy Bookcases with corner and extensions.

 Repainted my Ikea wooden desk and bathroom shelves. They hold my Cricut cartridges and jars of embellishments just fine!
Approximate cost of remodel...
Paint = $80
Ikea Billy Bookcase = $550
Flooring = $250
Window covering = $60
Total = Under $1K A great do-it-yourself project!

God is good!
