It only took me over 25 years to have my own space. But I finally committed a small corner of our bonus room for my stuff.
A sweet friend blessed me with the white storage units last year when she remodeled her stamp room. I had them stored in a utility room. I've always had at least a desk where I could work from time to time and then have all of my creative junk stored around the house in various places. Which can be a pain!
I realized that when my son moved out I would still need his old room as a guest bedroom, so converting his room to a art room wasn't an option. And my youngest is many years from moving out. So I decided to push the sofa that we had up there to a different location and take a corner just for me.
I kept the fold out table that was up there. Why? My sweet son often used it to work on his artistic creations. He would draw, paint, marker etc one corner of the desk.I love it! It's a reminder of how talented he is.
I wanted a record, 45s, holder for my dies and I found one on Etsy for $10! Perfect.
Found the shelving unit at Target and it's perfect to keep my knitting/crochet pattern books and mags. Now they are all in one place. I have 2 baskets under the fold out desk where I keep my yarns. My stamp pads are kept in that black case next to the dies storage. It was a CD carrier, before we had IPods! Fits my Stampin' Up! Ink pads perfectly. (I have 2 of them, one is empty, so it's stored elsewhere. As you can see I don't keep many stamp sets. I just piled them up on the desk. (Older stamps are store elsewhere. And I don't keep many of them. Most of them are stamps or sets that I created.)
Love those clear baskets! Found them at Target in the bath aisle. They store my paints.
I keep all of my punches in the pull out drawers.
I cut down my 12 x 12 SU! Designer Series papers to 6 x6. Then store them in a clear container on my desk. Since I mostly do cards or smaller scaled projects I don't need to store much scrapbooking paper.(Older scrapbooking paper is in a container under the desk.) So these shelves worked perfectly for the rest of my paper supplies and extra stuff.
Where I color. This is in the main part of the house. Separate from the bonus room. It's nice to have it upstairs, tucked away. I can just sit there, watch a show on the computer and color away.
So now that I finally have a dedicated room I have been busy creating. It's been a long wait to finally have a small space just for me, but oh so worth it!
