A huge area for me to play in

Messy corner of craft room
This is one side of my craft room I decided it need a face lift so thanks to Lucky Phil he came to the rescue and helped me out.
Phil removed old desks and replaced them with  floating shelves and a desks that runs around 2 walls 

I was stuck in the middle of the room for a couple of days but it was well worth it to have the finished product
