This is just a small room in the basement and it was one of the first that we renovated when we moved into our house just over a year ago.
This room was being used as an office. Big oversized furniture pretty much filled it up!
This is a shot from the main room in the basement, crazy cables for internet hung in the weirdiest of places and a shelf on the back wall was pretty much it.
Add some color, a new, inexpensive storage solution, and new flooring and you get a pretty good space to scrapbook in!
The light is terrible in this room, so don't mind the terrible pictures!
Darrell rescued this drafting table from the discard pile at work. $25 I wanted an "island" type of work space that I could walk around and this was a good solution. All the other items in the room I already had and it was fun to have empty walls to decide what to put where.
Darrell put up a piece of metal that I could use as a bulletin board for clips with magnets on them to hold my stamps, easy to see and get at. I still have more ribbon and would like to come up with a better solution for it. Anyone have some good ribbon storage ideas, please share :)
I already had bins and drawers for paper, stickers, etc. but wanted to have them hidden behind doors. The easiest solution for that was a trip to JYSK where we found these storage cupboards on sale. 2 of them filled the one wall perfectly! They are not the best in sturdy construction, but will fit the bill just fine in this room. Plus it was a quick easy solution that didn't require us building something from scratch and i was able to get this room unpacked and organized in no time.
Not sure if I will keep the bench on this wall. It takes up a bit too much floor space and the one cupboard door is a little crowded when trying to open. I do like the collage of pictures on that blank wall though.
There you have it! One small scrapbook room! This is my second small space room that I have done for my scrappin collection. You can view my wee room under the stairwell at our previous house here.
One more time,,,the Before n After
