Can I just say that I literally have the best husband in this entire world? I had to go out of town for work last week and 4 days later, I came home to this:
Here is what my craft area looked like before. Nothing special, by any means. Especially because it was right in front of the water heater.
John bought a couple styles of these storage cubes by Martha Stewart from Home Depot. Don't you love how he even knew to take pictures of everything so that I could blog about it?!
For the top of the table, he got some particle board that we had left over from a shelving unit at work.
He painted the particle board with a perfect color called "Sleeping Beauty" by Behr Paints. Then "accidentally" spilled glitter all over the table so now it is sparkly pink!
He built the shelving units into the U-shape desk using three 3x3 shelves and one 2x3.
He went above and beyond by painting the back pieces of the shelves to make the pink pop against the white.
He even drilled a hole in the top of it so my Silhouette, laptop, glue gun & screw driver could sit on the desk and not have cords showing.
If you haven't noticed, I was incredibly happy with the final product. I still can't believe the detail he put into it in a matter of three days. Here are some more views of it:
Oh yeah, and he called this my "President's Day" present.
Update: I'm amazed at the response I got on this post. Of course, my husband takes all of the credit, but either way, thank you for visiting!
