Craft Room Makeover

I finally got another shelving unit from Target for my craft room. I had accumulated so much stuff that I had things stacked all over the craft room, kitchen, and living room. It's definitely more organized. You'll notice I don't have a work table set up - that's because it has a permanent spot in my living room in front of the TV !!
