I've been talking about it for over 2 months now...it had to happen...there was no option!..My craft room/office/fancy room Makeover!..I'm now going to be referring to it as the Sequins & Scissors Studio...(it kind of encompasses all its previous titles)...anyway..over a month ago I teamed up with The Container Store for this makeover..while I did use items from other stores..and items I already owned for this makeover..I did buy some amazing essentials and fun items from them that really helped me do some Spring cleaning up in here!..and after several trips to drop off junk at Goodwill and lots of Pinterest inspirational research..it is complete!
For the unveiling I will start with some before photos...as well as some while i was in the middle of this overwhelming process...

and after....
