CWC (8/16/11) Craftroom update and storage tips

Hi Everyone,
My craft room is done!!!! Yahooo!!!!!
It was a lot of work, but once I start a project like this I don't stop until it's done. I still have to redo my closet, but thats a winter's day project. It needs to be painted and then install new shelving.

Here's a video of what I did and a few storage tips...

Watch below | Watch on You Tube

Here's what I added to my room. From Ikea: Besta Shelving, Ribba Shelving, Expidit, Bygiel Rails, Storage boxes. My computer desk is from Target. Here is the video with the Ribba shelves that Teri found. Love that idea. And finally here is my chair (I ordered Apple Green)

I told you all a while ago how I decided not to be in the business of selling DVD's anymore, I still have some of the Everyday Cards DVD available...I'm having a special Craft Room Clean Up Sale on my DVD...Click HERE to order...

Enjoy your day and see you all back here Friday for Stampin' on Friday...
Hugs

  5. Organized! You must be feeling great! Love your storage tips. I use something similar for brads and what nots - but I need to change since my collection has grown. Thanks for the inspiration - I certainly need to clean my space up.

  7. i love your craft room! You did an amazing job. I'm always looking for better storage ideas. I like how you put your mists out those shelves. Do you know you can order some ikea items online? They might have those online, if you wanted more.
    i wanted to ask you, if you really loved you E2 more than your version 1 expression? My birthday is next month and i want to buy myself an imagine but the E2 looks tempting too. I have an expression already that i love.

  17. Thanks for sharing your fabulous room. I wish we had an Ikea near here. Costco has a shelving unit sort of like the Expidit unit and it comes with 8 canvas boxes. The problem with it is it is brown and the rest of my ClosetMaid I already have is white. So, are you going to leave your PTI stamps in the CD boxes, always? My boxes eventually break, so I am kind of frustrated. I too have started leaving other brands on the acetate and hanging on my Clip it Up.
    Thanks for sharing. Your room looks awesome!

    Is the chair comfortable?

  25. Christina, your craft room is wonderful. Love the colors and thanks for sharing your storage tips: They are great and I'm planning on using some of them. Would you be willing to share where you purchase your 12 x 12 paper packs? I too love October Afternoon, but have a hard time finding the paper packs where I live.
