New Hobby Room

BEHOLDDDDDDD! The pictures you have been waiting for! Has it been one week or two? Seems like forever since I took on painting those dressers! If you want to see the STUDIO BEFORE CLICK HERE. It has been one year and 12 days since I last took pictures of the craft room. I have worked in this room for an entire year and know how to make it work FOR me instead of against me! HAHA!

Here are pictures of my PAPER-SIDE of the room! I will show the beading side later this week! I have some items to work on and some deadlines to meet first, so once I get those things done I will photo the beading side of the room.

First is a picture of my desk where I make cards and paper-craft. I have a beading table facing it, so I can always have two projects going on at once in case I get interrupted with a new bead order or better yet, a new paper or jewelry inspiration! You can see here the tall metal shelves are now covered with some satin curtains (to hide stamp sets!) and the shelves have 6 photo-storage boxes containing everything from Stickles, Nestibilites, Acrylic Stamps & blocks to Re-inkers, glitters and scrap ribbon! I have a total of 27 of these photo-storage boxes in my craft room! At top there is additional storage in some canvas lined wicker baskets. I have rub-ons, altered art items like clear paint buckets, glass coasters, etc in those.

And last, but not least is one of my wonderful new dressers with PULLS! I finally have something to grab on to now! WOOHOO!


You can also see the larger part of my paper storage here, too. At top is my HUGE 12x12 collection of Bazzill paper. Underneath that is my 12x12 patterned paper storage containers. Each collection of patterned paper is in a 12x12 clear bag to keep things organized and tidy. Under that is my 8 1/2 x 11 Stampin' Up! cardstock stash. In between those are some glass containers of buttons. I had to do that to accommodate the shelf brackets underneath.

And here is the final shelf by the door where you walk in. Behind my door is my ribbon storage unit. If you haven't seen that, CLICK HERE TO SEE IT and be awed! HAHA!
Here's a detailed shot of the photo boxes. Each one is labeled with the contents, or at least a general description of what is inside. When my hubby gets time he is going to make me some additional shelves for this section so that the top layer of boxes won't sit on the bottom ones, but rather on a new shelf above them.




Here's a close up of the paper storage, you get the idea!




See below for more detailed pictures of my storage ideas!
