Craft Room Storage
Creativity has been washed away by the rain, or something. Have not been able to sit down and make a card in the last few days. So, I thought I would share some of my craft room updates. I had a hard time deciding what to use for storage and decided to go with these cabinets from the Martha Stewart collection at Home Decorators. I waited until there was a sale and free shipping before taking the plunge. I got one to begin with because I wanted to see the interior and get an idea of how much storage they would provide.
As you can see, I have set up the top as work stations. On the left I have my die-cutting area with my Cuttlebug and Big Shot. And on the other end I have my MS score board, paper trimmer, SU ink pads, Copics and other markers. I am 5'6" and it is the perfect height for a work table.
The following pictures are of the inside of the drawers so you can get an idea of how much they hold.
I love these cabinets! But if I didn't have a very handy hubby I would have needed to hire someone to assemble them for me. Each cabinet arrives in 3 large boxes...talking from 70-90 lbs each. Larry put the drawers together in the garage but the cabinet base he assembled in the room. Not sure we would have made it through the doors if it was assembled outside the room. This is a heavy, sturdy piece of furniture.
The room is a work in progress. It will be much neater than it was before and I am still trying to decide what I want to do on the walls. I am always on Pinterest and other sites looking for ideas.
Tomorrow I will have a post on how I am storing some of my clear and cling stamps.
Thanks for stopping by my craft room!
