Before my boyfriend Steve and I bought a condo, I had a small corner of our living room to scrap. Part of my motivation to buy a place was to have more scrapping space. Our condo, which we have been in just over a year has 2 bedrooms, so we use the 2nd bedroom as an office/scrapbook room/storage. Here is my side of the room. Steve chose the colour for this room, and when it first went up I was a bit shocked, but I really LOVE it now!
First is my desk - I like to sit to scrap, and it works out well because I can just reach to my right for just about everything. I had my sewing machine stored, but it is such a pain to get out, so it lives on my desk for now. Right beside my desk is a set of plastic drawers and on top of them is a mail tray and an Ikea drawer organizer which I use to put all my garbage in (this helps me to clean up as I go)
The tupperware container on my desk holds all of the tools and adhesives that I frequently use (i.e. Corner rounder, circle punches, rulers, pop dots, etc.) and the mini blue tote hold my pens, scissors, and adhesive. This is handy for me because a lot of the time I'm not home when I scrapbook.
The orange bins house all of my large tools. My Bind-it-All, Cuttlebug, embossing gun, extra scissors etc. I would also like to start storing scraps in one of them.
Then there is the top row. The silver bins have undecorated mini albums, and rubber stamps. And then I have some cards and my mini albums on display. By having this display shelf, I can enjoy looking at my creations, and also can condense it in the future to make more storage space.
TFL, and I hope this gives you some ideas for your own space.
