Well, scrap area or scrap closet ???? Who cares It's all my own. After scrapping on top of my ironing board I feel so BLESS to finally have a designated area of my own, did I say, very own!
I live in small beautiful old home that I love. This is my first home and it will probably be my last too. I love my house, it's just right. But, like all old Florida homes, well they're small. It took some doing but I finally did it.
I took half of the laundry room as my scraproom. I just love how it turned out, actually it was very inexpensive to do, just a bit or work. Most of the furniture and shelving were from thrift stores, garage sales and just plain old junking. Actually now that I think about it, so is my entire home. TAKE A LOOK!
This is it, all 6 feet by 6 feet!!! Every inch is accounted for. Oh wait, I still have the ceiling.
This cart is the most functional thing in my scrap area, it holds just about EVERYTHING!
I think in function, task and some times in color. For example, I have a metal drawer, a plastic embellishment drawer and word drawer, you get the point. It works for me.
These I found while junking in Alabama with my sis, Dolly and my friend Beth. I LOVE LOVE junking in Alabama. I painted them the same color to give them a bit of unity, but I actually I found them in two different places and they were different colors. It's amazing what a little paint can do.
These are some of my stick pins, I love looking at them!
This little piece of art is one of my fav things in my scrap area. This beautiful canvas was given to me by my friend Wanda, isn't she great?
These are my fav bottles, look at them all dressed up.
I love dressing up my bottles, these I found at my local Good Will for a few dollars.
My version of the clip it up. This use to be a little jewelery display stand.
This beautiful vintage card frame was made by my friend Martica, her take on vintage is amazing!
These doors lead to the other half of the laundry room, by having these doors I created a complete different area for my scrap space. I put some wire racks, that I picked up at Pier One and I use that space to display some of my atcs and tags swaps goodies.
I love looking at my fancy ribbons, trims and vintage button collection so much, that I use them as part of my decor, plus it makes a great conversation piece.
This cart use to be a coffee station, I sanded it, primed and painted and now is a crisp clean shade of white and it's perfect for my Cricut, Gypsy, Slice and Cuttlerbug. In the wire basket drawer I keep my punches and distressing tools. This is perfect cause I can wheel it right into my scrap area.
This is where I keep my paper, this piece of furniture is in my living room, but no one knows what's in it.
This is how I store most of my ribbons and fibers. This is a display stand I had from my shop actually I had two and now I wish I would of kept the other one. You can see I'm running out of room.
