New Craft Room

I am finally sharing pictures of my new craft room. It has been down stairs in my basement for some time but I was hoping to do a video and have just not got it done, however I do have pics.

Here is a picture of the top of one of my storage shelves. I got these jars from the dollar store. they came in two sizes...perfect. I have an assortment of embellishments stored here. Below is where my stamps are stored, same as they were when my room was upstairs. The second unit like this one store my Designer paper and 12 x 12 cardstock and is right next to this shelf. I did not get a picture of it.

This is a photo display I picked up at a local hardware store. I am storing/displaying tags I received in various it!

This is a build in wall unit that used to store the entertainment equipment but now stores my craft stuff. Dies, embellies Tim stamps and glimmer mist, embossing powders and on the top Finished projects.

This is a mirror my daughter bought me that I added a rub on from Stampin Up to.

Just below if I have several projects on display.

To the left there is a shelf that used to store books but now stores embellishments and my ribbon. I designed the supports for the ribbon so that it is not permanent and can simply be removed should I change rooms

Another shelf is to the right, I have my flowers and other necessities here near my desk.

Two filing cabinets hold my 8 1/2 x 11 paper and on top sits my BigShot and a basket with my Nesties.

Several plastic drawers sit on the wall unit and hold my punches.

Just above that are more containers holding various embellies.

To the left is where I used to store my DVD's but now the shelves hold my Sizzix and other dies. Love this. It also holds my embossing folders.

I love my new room. In the center is a folding table so I could have classes...if I could just find the
