I had gotten this bookshelf as a window bench type seat. It provides some nice pretty storage space for books and toys and all things kid. I do hope to put some drawer inserts in place of the white boxes, you know, to store more art supplies and paper and tons of tiny toys that seem to accumulate in the blink of an eye. I adore the prints I purchased from Printspace. And of course our indistructable kids craft table is a must have.
Here's my main workspace. I was lucky enough a couple years ago to get the desk and chair and wall shelf, I love having such a nice BIG desk. I spray painted my thread rack and bulletin board frame an off white to coordinate with the room.
Here's a closeup of the window bench seating area. I thought about making some cushions for on top, but I figured they be tossed on the floor a majority of the time. I think I'll wait until the girls get a little older and maybe even when they decide it's not so fun to color on the furniture.
This lovely unit stores most of my fabric and notions. I love it! The drawer inserts in the bottom are the best, they don't look like much, but compared to what I was using, they're great and it makes thing really easy to find.
My fabric stash. Up top I have the jars filled with buttons, zippers, and extra spools of thread. The basket contains my grandma's vintage fabric.
An extra set of shelves never hurts. Just a few pretty items to look at and some extra needles.
My workhorse sewing machine, gifted to me by my Uncle (and you won't believe my luck here), a sewing machine repair guy!
One of the best things about this room is that I think it'll be really easily converted back into a bedroom once my daughters get a little older and need more space. All the furniture is really versatile and will work with any decorating scheme they might dream up.

That about wraps it up, I have a whole set of pics up in my flickr photostream, please take a look at those if you want to see more. I added a bunch of notes as to what stuff is hidden where.
