I will do a few posts to give you an IN DEPTH look at my supply organisation so for today, I'll give you a basic overview. Refresh your memory and see the before photos here of my room all painted and ready to go.
We have a back room running the length of the house, like an afterthought, that was always just a dumping ground for "stuff". You might remember also that I transformed one whole end of the room into a toy/play room for Amelia (see it here) leaving the other end for me and my scrapbooking supplies. Descriptions are below the photos.
It is slightly smaller than my old room, it took some trial and error to get the furniture configured right.
With a whole wall of windows on one side combined with the light colours I've used, it's such a light and airy room!
To solve the problem of the cheeky toddler getting in, my handy husband dismantled an old wooden playpen and turned it into a "fence" and painted it white. Perfect.
Here's the gate, opened up to let me in!
Of course, my Expedit shelves from IKEA are the most prominent feature of my room! They ended up covering most of the aqua wall, but it didn't work on any other wall (as was my initial plan).
My drawer unit now sits nice and close to my desk. There's plenty of room on top of my drawer unit for my two Clip It Ups as well as carousel with all of my essential tools.
Desk is from IKEA. We got the tabletop and legs separately.
I love my little easel that sits on my desk to put ideas that I'm working on or newly completed layouts.
You can see my Clip It Ups here in all their glory! Sooo good to have them handy as I scrap.
Aaaand another view. Got a bit snaphappy :) Chair is from (where else) IKEA. My old black office chair was just too big and bulky for the small space. I kept getting stuck on furniture and I don't wheel around on it anyway. I love this new chair - it's very comfy and has a removable cover!
Now, see that cute cushion?
Inspired by my friend Donna and some absolutely beautiful cushions she's been making, I actually made this cushion myself! Based around the beautiful aqua and pink fabric, I've teamed it with some white chenille and dyed doilies and I love it!
Here is where I now store my wood mounted stamps out on display. This is definitely one nook of my room that I will go into more detail over.
Thanks for all your interest in my organising. If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or email me!
I have plenty more photos to share in the coming days. Thanks also for being patient with me as I struggle to find time to blog as much as I want to lately due to a toddler who doesn't nap much anymore and a serious head cold this week! Promise, I'll be back soon . .
