Craft Room Overhaul

Remember this shelf? I bought it at a Pottery Barn outlet last yearish for $40. I was hoping to find a second matching one over the weekend as we were back in San Marcos. 

I love how it stores my paints and charms, and is also a great place for displaying my ATC collection. Well, no luck finding a second one. :( I totally regret not buying the second one the first visit. But, I did find something new for my craft room. :)

Tada! :) I had to move the other shelf to a different wall to make room for this beauty. It's about 4 feet wide. There is a cork board inside so I am going to start an inspiration wall. I tucked in the magazines I am currently reading. (Well, the craft ones anyway. We'll talk about that obsession some other day.)

So the other shelf got moved here - above the plastic paper storage. 

These baskets hold the bulk of my chipboard stash. 

This one holds pages leftover from completed albums. 

This one has shipping tags and vintage ephemera, along with some canvas covered albums.

This one holds the oddly shaped albums. I counted 32..

This is a basket for projects I've seen on blogs and want to try, and also holds my die-cut felt collection. Still looking for a prettier way to store that. 

This is my seam binding stash - all blame goes to Lisa Pace for telling me where to buy it. ;)

Some larger chipboard albums, and a chipboard cone I want to use for May Day this year if I can only remember before the day arrives. Grrr. 

 This is my 6x6" and 8x8" paper collection. If I like a paper line I buy it in this size for myself because it is a lot less expensive. 

Next to that sits this cart that I found at a garage sale for $3. I put this sign on here to remind me to keep things simple on my projects and in my room. 

That's my tour of the craft room after its overhaul this week. I can officially cross one resolution off my list. Happy Scrapping! Dee2

Thanks for the tour, DeeDee! I love your room. Very nicely organized. One day I will have a room of my own to scrap in (I hope).

Lisa M. Pace said...

Karin said...

Looks great...I've been doing the same. Funny how that chipboard seems to sneak up on us!

Well done DeeDee! I have few little bins I use for easy clean up...I hate sorting all the ribbons and flowers...chipboard...etc etc...right after each project! :) I like to save it up for a rainy day. :P

Love the room! I miss my scraphut very much. My little patio doesn't call my name or inspire me. : (
You have a wonderful stash. I have never played with chipboard and very little with ink. My paper stash though... you would be dying over. (blush)Now If I can just get ribbon here. : )
