My Scrap Room Revealed !
 
We are not 100% finished, but far enough along that I can share some picutres of the Scraproom. My wonderful husband has been spending all of his nights and spare week ends to custom create this room for me based around my needs and suppies (mostly supplies)
We started with a blank slate
 
 
And even tore out the closet
 
 
For my die cutting area
 
 
 
He installed a wood floor and then
built some paper racks with shelves that pull out
 
 
He added some drawers and counter tops too !
 
 
During this time, this is what the other parts of my house looked like
Scrap supplies from one end to the other and we were afraid the neighbors were going
to turn us into the health department as horders
 
 
But the the storage started to come together and I was able to put some things away
 
 
 
A Place For Punches
 
 
Upper Shelving
 
 
Corner Shelving
 
 
More Paper Storage and shelves
 
 
And even a place for my Accucut and dies
(remeber the torn out closet?)
 
 
 
The only unfinished part, he has three more drawers and faces to finish
and then he can rest
 
 
My Clock, butterflies and Lace Birdcage, and the flower rack that Barrie sent to me.
This is the only
open wall for fun decorations.
 
So this wraps up the tour of my scrap room and I must say that I
do feel spoiled and blessed to have someone that loves me so much that
he would take the time to make me all of this.  I hope you know that I am not
bragging, just excited to have a place to call my own.
 
Happy Scrappin !
Carol

  1. Carol, I am sooooo happy for you! I can relate to how you feel about your hubby and your craft room. I can hardly wait until January to rip mine apart as I desperately need shelves and more counter work space. We bought the tile yesterday and I picked out the paint color. I will send you pics when it's done. Have a WONDERFUL time in your new creative space...btw I envy the die cut storage rack. LOL Ella aka cmella04

  3. I know its a sin to be jealous or envious about someone, but I have to admit...I am. Don't get me wrong I am grateful for my Studio, and being on a budget, well I didn't get the kind of storage I would have loved to have. But thank the Lord I have what I have. This is awesome, I especially love your huge die cut machine, almost got one when Page in Progress was closing its door, but really did not have the room. Congratulations! I know some awesome projects are going to be created in there. Tell your wonderful Hubby he did GOOD! Thank you for sharing. Luv-n-Hugs!

  8. YOU SHOULD BRAG....on your wonderfully talented husband and a beautiful craft space. I have been faithfully following your journey of the scrapbook room and am so happy for you (and hubby) that it is finished. How does the living room look? Does it feel like a new room? Thank you for sharing with all of us and I have to agree...it does make me envious! You are so organized and know exactly what you have and anything you need - just get it from the store! Have fun crafting and I cannot wait to see what new inspirations that you will have to show us. Take care and enjoy that room and your hubby!
    Hugs, Konnie

  9. Hiya
    Your room is beautiful and I envy you. I have a corner in a room and I have to share with 2 other people. I am so happy to hear about the international shipping. Quicker packages are always welcome. My stash of scor tape will be healthier quicker. Thank you for all my happy mail.

  11. Your room looks so organized and ready for scrapping! Hubby should be proud of all that beautiful work he did. One thing I added to my scrap room that made immediate impact was a large covered container (14"x10") that I filled with legal manilla folders. I painted the tabs with basic colors and folded the bottom of the folders up to form loose pockets then put them all inside. Next I sorted all my paper scraps into the basic colors and put them in. Now it is by my feet and I use it so many times everyday to get the right shade of some color to add a little something to my projects. I have begun making cards using leftover minibook stuff and it is paying off big time! Next I need some organizer for leftover embellishments like bits of ribbon and single blooms since card making is really becoming addictive trying to use up all my scraps. Mary Werner

  17. What a beautiful room , your husband did a great job and yes he love you. It is nice to have somewhere to sit and relaxe and scrapbook. I have a nice scrapbooking room also but i have so much stuff and not much of shelvings that it's all over the room lol. Sad i'm working on my big table in my dining room. I love how you organized all your papers. How do you store all your paper pads? Really a good job on building and organizing . Take care both of you and have a great day .

  25. Oh my goodness gracious alive. I love it. Since my son-in-law is a dabbler in wood and is going to be building a new shop which will house a scrap area for me, this gives me some good ideas for him. He has no idea what I am talking about when I tell him I need shelves for punches or this and that. I will be casing you room for ideas. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi,

    You are truly a fortunate lady with all that awesome space. A place for everything and everything in it's place. Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  42. WOW Carol!!! You are so lucky to have a handyman hubby. Mine is useless when it comes to tools. My room is a 16x24 bonus room but the walls are just 5 foot high and then the ceiling starts the slope to the center of the room. So all my stuff is low and spread out, not within arms reach of my desk. I do love your floors and paper storage area. I think paper and punches are my weakness. I would love to have all those paper shelves. Enjoy your room...you deserve it!!!

  43. Oh my goodness. I love your lace birdcage. I think you are going to enjoy your room, I enjoy mine. Love the way u have your punches stored. Great idea. I have seen some that are made with rods from IKEA. Just think of all the fab hours u will spend creating designs. Thanks for the beginning to end pictures. That was fun. Lanna

  69. Carol, I can't think of a more deserving person getting this little oasis of your very own. Your husband is a keeper for sure. I can see you now sitting there getting those baby books done. Happy Scrapping (When we leave you enough time to scrap that is).
