Amazing what one simple Ikea fixture can do! Best part, it's LED so it should last a while and not get hot to the touch.

So this little area is coming together, the other part of the room is causing my dilemma. Basically the room is only 10x10.. I have a desk in there that I may or may not keep.. Depending on storage solutions.
Again, handy dandy Pinterest has come to the rescue--kinda. I've found a few desks that give ample work space by using a couple Expedit Ikea shelving units... like this one:
Yesterday I posted about my two walls that are up in the air.
The other wall is like this. Again I took tape and taped out a rough layout on the floor. This time showing 2, 24" base cabinets with the space in between able to have a chair for the workstation.
Up above this whole area, a series of open floating shelves. Maybe not the most pratical. Ugh, I wish I had an organization bone in my body! Organizing is NOT my forte!
I'd really love some narrow depth base cabinets.. but I have no idea where to find them! Unless maybe they really are upper cabinets converted to base cabinets.. It doesn't solve my wanting of drawers tho! The picture on the right seems to have some drawers.. and bygollygoshdarnit, I want them!
My closest Ikea is 4 hours away, so Ikea at this point isn't even an option! Argh! I want my space done, and functional and to be able to FINALLY host a Stampin' Up! party for my friend Trish.
All the more reason storage and multiple workspaces are so important. What's the point in crafting, if you can't have a few girlfriends join you?!
Tomorrow I'll be swinging by the ReStore to check out what they have.. Maybe something will work.
I am open to any sugegstions, input, pinterest, shopping leads etc..
