Bye Bye Craft Room, HELLO Nursery!

This room has been a haven for my craft messes for awhile now, but soon we will start making it into a nursery for our baby that is on the way. I am not sorry to give up this room, it's for such a good cause, but where on earth am I going to put all of my JUNK? This picture shows one side of the craft room, the other side is where I moved everything unsightly. This really is a great room. It's really quiet because it's away from the landing, and while it is small, it has three windows.

This is the same room that had a stovepipe hole in the chimney that the squirrel would pop out of while I was working at the desk. That hole has been patched, some quickie shelves were installed and we attached some plywood to the wall for a makeshift desk with a skirt. You wouldn't believe what a person can hide under a skirt!
Linoleum had been installed on the floor decades ago and someone had tried to remove it, but even sanding did not work. Since it was sanded smooth, I painted over it with porch paint, which made it into the most cleanable surface in the entire house. Tacky glue and acrylic paint are no match for the porch paint!
I'm going to keep the craft room until after Christmas, then start on the baby's room. That project will be the easiest one we've had in awhile- mostly just painting the walls and freshening the stain on the woodwork. Then all that is left is decorating.
