Finally A Space for Me...Craft Room Tour!

I'm so incredibly excited to finally share my craft room!
We just moved 4 months ago.  All of my de-cluttering happened before the move.  We threw out so much stuff.  I started to think I was a hoarder.  There were lots of tears.

My craft space was shared with my bedroom for years.  Yes, I know, my poor husband.  Needless to say, our new bedroom IS A BEDROOM!

The formal dining room is now my craft room | office!  We added french doors so we can close the doors if needed - you know, when it gets too messy when people stop by. This space is long and narrow.  Here is where we started!  Ha! Ha! Ha!  Most days I would just close the door and not walk in. It's been a looooonnnng 4 months.  Remember, I told you, I'm a hoarder.
 
Let's get to the tour...

I had a vision.  I wanted a workspace and also a space to have friends over for crafting parties.  So the decision to NOT to include a traditional desk in this space was crazy, I know, BUT IT WORKS!  For weeks I looked for a work table, everything I found had a warehouse feeling to it.  Then I searched for a custom or vintage farmhouse table...way to expensive.  One day I was out shopping and saw this table, my first thought 'this is a dining room table', my second thought, 'my space is a dining room, let's make this work!' So, this amazing dining room table is now a crafting table!!!

I usually find myself sitting here for hours.  I can have my laptop out and work on projects all that the same time.  LOVE THAT.
On to the bookshelves.  I love how I can hide all of my un-organized supplies and inventory behind the solid part of the doors.

I use the white bins for that exact same reason.  I like to also have all the open shelving.  I'm forced to keep it looking organized.  Plus keeping it all organized means, I no longer need to spend 20 minutes looking for supplies.
I love how everything looks nice and clean, I do however enjoy just a touch of vintage.  So my trips to Vintage Market Days and to Round Top, Texas usually consist of smaller vintage purchases.   I've picked up vintage baskets
and I have also found an old window and decided to create a perpetual calendar.  (Tutorial coming soon).  Speaking of the window, we can't forget about the printer cabinet.  I wanted to add a touch of color to the space. I think this turned out perfect.  You can find the tutorial for the printer cabinet here.
Let's see, what else...oh, the floor.  I wanted a great area rug in this space under the table, however, I've already spilled paint on the tile and clean up was a breeze.  So, no rug for this space.  Yay for the tile floor and future spills.

We have more things to do in here.  And I still have boxes to unpack...this hides behind the french doors.  When they are opened no one really sees it.  One day I will open them up to find out what treasures are hinding inside.
I'm now on the hunt for new light fixture and I'm looking for a vintage door we can hang as a barn door.  Can't you see it, in teal?  I have an opening into the butler's pantry.  I didn't want to close this off during the building process, just in case one day we decide to use this space as...(clearing my throat)...a dining room.
Thank you guys for taking a look inside my craft room.  I can't wait to start having friends over to craft!  I also want to thank Angie of Country Chic Cottage for having me as part of her Craft Room Tours.  You can see other amazing spaces here.

Love this room!!! I need to create something similar. Where did you get the white book shelves / cabinets. Are they Ikea too?
