Sneek Peek

So I finally got my craft room organized the way I wanted...or so I thought...until Mother Nature decided we needed rain every other day for a couple of months and my basement started to seep, then mildly flood...since my craft room is in my basement that lead to a problem...here are some pics of how my room looked when I re-did it about a year ago. It stayed looking mostly like this until about a week ago...

This is my main stamping/crafting area...no matter what that desk will stay in that spot until we move, it weighs a ton and is too big to fit anywhere else...in front of it is my stamp shelf (yea right...the paper packs are long gone from this shelving unit...stamps have way over-run it...)

This is how my stamp shelf looked about a year ago, notice how bare it looks and remember that for the after picture...all the white stickers say retired so I can easily locate the proper stamps for classes and camps. It would not be a good thing to take a retired set and have a customer fall in love with it so I figured glaring white labels would work great! I really liked having my paper in that area, it made it easy to find what I was looking for at a glance. The container next to the paper holds my various brushes.

This is my flower storage and ribbon storage area mostly. I also kept some of my counted cross stitch materials on this shelving unit. The middle shelf was for my DH & DH's model cars and the bottom shelf was the kids games.






This was my ingenious idea for how to store my wreathes...the white bar is a tension shower rod with bent hangers being used as hooks to use some of that wasted space. This was also the shelf that held my embossing powders, pearl powders and twinkling h2o's as well as eyelets, brads and magazines and idea books. The brown thing to the left is my sewing machine (that I barely know how to use...)
Stay tuned and in the next few days I should have my room to my liking (again) and will post new pics of it...it has changed quite a bit from these pictures...

Wow! I love the way your "before" room looks. I can't wait to see the after. I sooooo need to show these pictures to my DH. I think he is under the miss thinking that I am the only person in the world that has this many supplies......Maybe knowing I am not that unusual will help him deal with it.........
