Here's the New Look! I found white cabinets on sale, (just what I wanted!) to store everything within arm's reach of my chair in a way that made everything accessible and neat (not leaning as it appears in the photo!) If you checked out the old arrangement (see Dec. 27 post) you can see that I reversed the room so that these storage units are on the wall where the table used to be.

Behind the cabinet doors are most of my mounted stamps. Now I can keep the blinds open (or up) during the afternoon when the sun shines in without it damaging the rubber. The rest of them are stored in the 2-drawer unit under the window. The unmounteds are stored elsewhere in the room.

I enjoy having my computer handy, with the printer to the right of my desk, adjacent to the closet doors. My tiny Dell speakers have a full sound, allowing me to listen to a variety of radio stations streaming on the internet. On Sundays, I enjoy listening to classical music from Seattle; nights I often tune in to Delilah's "sappy love songs" as she calls them.

Across from my desk is a 3-drawer wooden dresser which houses my TAC unmounted stamp sets, 12x12 designer papers and a bottom drawer full of scrapbook pages and photos. On top sits my cutter and the special card holder my DH made. Above that is a shelf my husband also made and mounted for me to display my cards before I use them. The horizontal cards hang on the string beneath the shelf, with the vertical ones above. The door at left leads to the hallway.

Look at you. What a great room. My room is my dining room table. When we move, I get my own room. Who knows when that will be though. I love yours.

What an awesome stamping space you are blessed with. My stuff is all jammed into a corner of our bedroom in our small townhouse. I can't wait until my husband finally finishes up his PhD and gets a real job :) then maybe I'll get a nicer place to stamp. ;)

Love what you've done with your room! Isn't it so nice to have a place for everything and everything in its place...well, most of the time! You can't stamp and STAY uncluttered long. But with the way you've organized bet you can tidy up quickly and easily. Love it all! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Awesome job!!! My DH made a closet into storage shelves for me. I must take a photo and share it too, but it isn't nearly as nice as yours. You must really enjoy being in your space now. Thanks for sharing.

Lauren said...

Great job! You are sure to be inspired.

Carolyn King said...

Wow..great job on your reorganized space--looks great.
I love your creative card storage too!

Nancy Grant said...

Oh wow!!!! Organized indeed! What a blessing!

Wow, Doris!!! What a great space you have! Thanks so much for sharing it with me. I love how coordinated all your storage is. Mine is a bit of a hodge-podge of containers and drawers. They work, but they aren't as aesthetically pleasing as yours!
