It's Done! (Well, 99% done)

My Scramp Room is pretty well done. Here are some pictures. They came out kind of dark, but the room isn't really quite as dark as the pictures show. This is still in a basement so the ceiling is not finished and the floor is concrete.

The color on the walls is called "Baked Squash" from the Martha Stewart collection from Lowes. The tall white cabinets,the "Formica" countertop and the long white shelves are from Lowe's as well. The tall CD wall unit, the black storage boxes and the white drawers holding up the left side of my work station are all from IKEA. The desk is from a local church rummage sale and upper glass from cabinet I picked up at a local resale shop.

This is the basic view from the door. The new work station is on the left. The Desk with the glass door cabinet is the die cutting station and the two tall white cabinets hold my stamp stuff (cabinet on the left) and my scrapbooking stuff (cabinet on the right).

This is the view of my new workstation. The counter top is 8 feet long, so there is plenty of room to work as well as keep my sewing machine out. The black IKEA storage boxes hold all of stuff. For example, one box is marked Embossing, Sparkle and Bling. This box holds my embossing powders, heat gun, glitter and anything that sparkles. Another box is marked Chipboard, that's pretty obvious what is in there.

Here is my die cutting station. This is the old desk I used to use for all of scrapping and stamping. The desk and upper cabinet hold all of my Quickutz, Sizzix, Nestabilities and Cuttlebug. I like the idea of having a separate Die Cutting workspace.

This is to the left side of my storage cabinets. There is a tall CD tower that holds my clear stamps. Most of my clear stamps are in CD cases. Also there is an old style Cassette Tape box, this holds my ink pads perfectly.

I have all my buttons and ribbons displayed on the shelf about my work station. They look really pretty.

I hope you can get a pretty good idea of how my room turned out. My photography skills are lacking for sure.

Hope you enjoyed the little tour.

Wow! I really love your space. The color is so cosy and inspiring.

I also love your ribbon storage. I wish I had the patience to wrap all my ribbon on clothespins like that, but I don't. LOL~

Thanks for sharing.
