My Remodeled Scrapbook Room

My new scrapbook Room after a trip to IKEA in Pittsburgh Pa. (A 220 mile drive from home)

The countertop (wall to wall) cabinets and drawers were built a few years ago.  The tables, chairs, desk and drawers (under windows and next to table) are new additions from IKEA. I also bought basket dividers for the drawers from IKEA. What a fun place to shop!

Line, Line, Circle, Square

I finally got my craft room togethr after a little remodeling and was able to enter this challenge! (Pictures of craft room coming soon)
