Recently I joined a wonderful Facebook Group for organizing your craft rooms and it has really given me the incentive and some great ideas to get my scrapbook room back on the right track and .... gasp! It may even be done by the end of March of this year. At the very latest, I'd say April. As with everything in my life, deadlines are ruled by my cancer and how I feel each day. But I've been working very hard on organizing things in my room and would like to share some photos of what has been done so far. It may not look like a lot but the before pictures that I did take look like a hurricane had gone thru my room. So here are some pictures of before and after shots.
|Back corner of my room|
|Work Table and Chair (chair from IKEA, table is a vintage 50's formica table)|
|My room as you walked into it before|
These 3 photos are my room at it's worst. I had not idea where I wanted to put things plus my dollhouse collection somehow made it's way into my scrapbook room (they now have a room of their own!)
|Paper Rack made by my husband with my Toby Keith Shrine on top of it! LOL!|
|Recollections organizer from Michael's that has been moved over my cutting station|
|Cutting station that has an Accu Cut machine, my Hello Kitty Cuttlebug machine and then all of my Cricut cartridges and dies underneath. This uni came from the Container store.|
|More storage as you enter my room. A storage cupboard, another paper rack made by my DH and them more cubes from Michael's that have been moved to a different area.|
The items in the photos above have pretty much stayed the same except for the tower of cubes at the end of the paper rack in the last picture. The 1st photo is my paper storage rack that my husband made and also my Toby Keith "shrine"! LOL! The Recollections shelf has been moved above my cutting station (picture 3) and in place of that shelf unit, we have added 3 more long shelves.
|I added an over the door rack to store my Washi Tape and some of my larger bottles of things in. I also plan on storing my ribbon in this but I still need to get a few more racks to add to it.|
|A closer look at how I have arranged things around the Hello Kitty TV. The clear paper holders will house my Bazzill cardstock in color order.|
And now here are some of the updated things I've done and organized over the last week or so. Which is quite a bit for that small length of time for me. Once I go going I didn't want to stop! The following three sets of shelves cover one completely wall that runs the length of my scrapbook room.
|These shelves will eventually hold my small Cricut, Xyron machines, my Zutter Binder and any other large items used for scrapping. The pink OTT light on the bottom shelf will be put on my scrap table eventually|
The next few items are things that will be in my Hello Kitty lounge area - more for decoration than anything else.
