A few more pics of the Construction in the new "Le Salon Rose"

Hi everybody!  I am still working on the craft room.  But I have decided to name it "Le Salon Rose"!  Sounds fancy, doesn't it?  Well the funny thing is it just means The Pink Room! Since my husband took me to Paris and London in 2010, I have fallen in love with Paris.  So my little piece of relaxation at home will remind me of the most beautiful city in the world! 

Here are some pics of the crating of the craft desk!

A different view.

Now with the top.

A close up of the crown molding.

The best part, I made it myself! The only help I needed from my hubby was putting the two center support beams in, and lifting the top (the top was very heavy!)  The measurements are 96 inches long, by 38 inches wide and 37 inches high!  It's a beast, and it is never leaving this room because it can't!    Let me know what you think!  I love, love, love it!  Can't wait to be able to just sit there and craft all day long!  I will keep you posted.  I should have a card and notebook combo posted sometime this week.  It's made and I have to give as a gift at work tomorrow.  It's my first Imagine project..

Gorgeous!! You're going to love having all that room to craft!!!! And I love the color!!

I laughed so hard when I saw your desk trim...I have the EXACT same trim on my desk. We redid my craftroom last summer, and that was the molding we chose!

Love looking at your blog. It seems we have a lot in common. I to love to craft, love the color pink, and I am helping take care of my father-in-law which is in the advanced stages of Alzhiemer's(which is so difficult to deal with emotionally for me). Keep on crafting! You are an inspiration.

Love your room. Hey we are close neighbors. Well I live a little further north in Schroon Lake, NY. I also love to paper craft. We own a pizza shop their called Alpine Pizza. We have been closed this summer due to my finance having a sudden brain tumor which turned out cancerous. He had 6 weeks of radiation/chemo and we are just waiting to have another scan to see if there is any of the tumor left. Crafting has helped me try to take my mind off of everything for awhile. I am sure that is the same with you. Well happy crafting. :)
