My new scrapbook room! Everything is pretty much done except for three photos (that go underneath the flower picture) and some basic decorating so I thought I'd share. This is the view from the front room. The light fixture will eventually be gone and be replaced by a fan/light combo. Most of my pieces are mismatched but I don't care, it works for me! :-)
The majority of my stuff is in a nook to the left of my desks. I like that it is kind of tucked away. I tried to label everything as best as I could so you can see how I have stored things. I didn't take any close ups of my color drawers because I think those are pretty self explanatory... I love storing my embellishments this way, it makes everything easy to find.
I normally pull my scrap drawer out when I am working and set it on one of my desks. When it gets to full to open, I clean it out and throw a lot of smaller pieces or pieces that have been in there for a long time away.
When we bought the house, we knew we'd never use a formal dining room so we decided this area would be my scrapbook room. I like that it's close enough to everyone that I can still hear what is going on but it's seperate enough that I feel like I have some privacy and a place just for me.
I usually stand when I am working so my desk is counter height. I have a second work place for when I do want to sit or for things that might get pulled out - like my color drawers. My "stuff to alter" storage is missing a shelf, which is why there is still stuff loaded in the Shiner box and looks like a mess! I forgot to label it but my sewing machine is going to be stored underneath the open space of my desk.
This sits on the floor to the right of my desk. Honestly, I didn't know where else to put them. I'm so used to my ribbon being stored by color in bags I wanted to keep it that way while I was getting back into the swing of things. The ribbon bagss will eventually go into a basket with a handle that can be moved to a desk for easier use.
For as nice and organized as I think I have it, it's not perfect (but what is right?). I thought I'd add a bit of my reality from the move...
And this is my new scrapbook room! It's so nice to have a place just for me after being so packed in at the other house.
I love it!
