I am absolutely beyond excited...the furniture for my new scrappy space is installed!!! This is a dream come true and I'm so happy that I'll finally have a space for my stuff. Derwin is the best - he knows how I'd love to have a space just for scrapbooking and he knows how much this hobby means to me. So, he told me to decide what I wanted to have in the scrappy space and get it made. Aren't I married to the best guy ever?!?!
Making the decision was really hard. I really wanted a big island-style table in the middle of the room to work at where I could stand or have a tall stool. However, with the space that we have and how we share it with play space, I felt it wasn't the best fit. I looked through all kinds of pictures to find what I wanted and then had my ideas ready.
This is the desk and shelf that I had made. I wanted a U-shaped desk so I could be working on one side while the kids did their crafts next to me. If they need help, they're right there so I don't have to get up and go to them. I got the shelf made for above for all those embellies that fit into those pretty jars. :D
This is the set of drawers I had him make for all my itty bitty stuff - bottles of paint, Stickles, stamps and inks, etc. I'll be putting my chipboard, stickers, etc in here.
This is where I'll be keeping my papers. I like vertical storage so I'll be keeping everything in the Cropper Hopper vertical containers in these slots. I'll also keep the albums I'm working on here, if there's room. The space to the left is the desk where the kids can do their projects. There's an opening on this side and another on the other side so they both can be there.
And this is my customized Expedit-style shelf. I got it made so it'll fit the WRMK d-ring albums so the squares are bigger than the Expedit units. This is where my albums will go.
Now, it's just a matter of finding a new home for all my goodies! How exciting!
