To create this amazing room, we emptied a former bedroom of everything. My husband painted the walls. Then we took measurements of all walls to Home Depot where we ordered all shelves, cabinets and two work tops. Don assembled everything and installed it to the walls. Everything is easy to keep clean with a damp cloth. Oh, and please notice the little ceramic dog next to the television, lovingly made for me by Kyle, my then 7yo grandson. I love it! Then scan back to the small shelf next to the window where you’ll find a ceramic flower made by my Katie (Kyle’s mother) when she was 10yo.
The window looks out to the front of the house, sidewalk and street.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy your tour of my favorite room, my Stamp Studio. If you double click on any of the photos they will enlarge on your computer screen so that you can see items in detail.
In the stamp studio I have four black metal bulletin boards from Pottery Barn. One above my computer desk and three above the new die cut desk. This display carries the New Color Collections chart! The IDEA white shelf below holds cute RAKS from others. The ceramic flower was made by my Katie in school back in 1979. The large white clothes pin will hold the new Color Coach when it arrives.
Notice that the two worktops are supported by four filing cabinets. In the smaller top drawers of the cabinets are markers, dimensionals, Tombow double sided tape, craft and paper snip scissors, business cards, camera accessories, ruler, etc. Three of the four bottom hanging filing cabinets contain all 8.5×11 cardstock in alphabetical order. All paper, ink pads and markers have been purged of retiring colors.
Custom cabinets, shelving and desktop deep 24 inch work table were all ordered from Home Depot and installed by my husband. On the left is the largest, deepest cabinet. The top part holds all 12×12 papers, both solid cardstock and DSP in our Stampin’ UP! 12×12 paper holders. It also contains a small bucket of colored art pencils and a plastic shoebox of retired reinkers. The bottom holds wooden stamp sets and Zutter products.
Notice that there are four filing cabinets with pull out hanging file drawers. All solid 8.5×11 cardstock is filed in three of the drawers, alphabetically. Scraps are kept filed with the full sheets for easy access.
