Looking like the real deal!

We had beautiful weather in Kansas today. Roger took the opportunity to do more work in the craft trailer. I can't believe how incredible it is looking. And the major components are all falling into place!

Check out these cabinets! The ones at the far end will be drawers. The white ones will be open and the bottom of the nearer cabinet will be doors.

We've collected old refrigerator drawers to fill the top spot in the white cupboards. This end is also intended to be used as a fabric cutting area. (I'm sure I'll manage to cover it with all kinds of stuff when I'm not cutting fabric!)

This yellow section will have drawers. The plan is to decoupage the fronts of the drawers so they match the reading nook area. Decoupage is my area of expertise, so I need to get to work on those!

My table is finally up. This is so exciting, because, let's face it, this is where I will be working the most. The table top is pine and will be finished with some kind of varnish or whatever. The drawers on the side were purchased at Michael's. Roger had to cut the table top to fit the curved end of the trailer. (That weird looking leg in the middle is not permanent.)

So, a fair amount of the work still to be done needs to be done by me! Decoupaging all those drawers and doors will take some time. Roger does still need to hang the closet doors and make doors for the storage area under the reading nook.

Wouldn't it be amazing if it were done by Christmas? I'm not holding my breath, but it's a nice thought.

That looks AMAZING! I love the vegetable crisper drawers as storage compartments. GENIUS!
