new desk/scrappy area.. pic heavy

I am so happy with my new desk. I have had it on shelves and on an old table in the extra room, but I hate being in there by myself. That is half the reason I haven't gotten much scrapping done in the last year.

My husband is on a temporary layoff from work and used his time home to make this for me. It is in the family room now and since its all contained it looks fine there.

He still has to paint the keyboard drawer. He put it up to make sure it was the right size and it has been raining since so he hasn't bothered to take it back down to paint it yet.

We put a piece of plexiglass down over the top to protect it. Jamie LOVES sitting ON the desk looking at the pictures lol.

Above the monitor. I love having all of that all closed up and away from sight!

Below the keyboard drawer. 12x12 books and sewing machine

I think this is my favorite part though! 8.5x11 books and paper. The drawers on the left worked out perfectly and he didn't measure for that. We were not sure what I would put in that space but they ended up fitting perfectly.

The drawers
He is going to put something in this picture side so I can sort the photos better.. but the pile on the left is just Jamie's FIRST year! I am so behind now. The other side is just pattern paper scraps.

Second drawer has stamps and trimmer. We bought some more of the plexiglass to store the stamps on and it works great. Takes up so much less space now.

Third drawer is a mess.. just cardstock scraps.

No pic of the 4th drawer because for the moment it has our Wii games and accessories in it. lol.

Thanks for looking!

That is so awesome! I love it! Great job to your DH! I am so showing it to mine. I have my own small room (was the nursery when the house was built in 1900) and he has been promising to build me shelving and a table for the last year!
