My 40Th Birthday Gift !!!!

It's official, I'm 40 today... And this is what I requested as a gift... a renovation of my scraproom. Well, we kinda had to, since we had found some mold in the walls, but over the holiday period, my husband was a dear and renovated the whole room. We kept many of my storage solutions, but we added a few extras.

I've been screening the web over the last few months for the inspirations and trying to find storage solutions that would work in the space I had while keeping things in a reasonnable budget. Some of the ideas you might have seen on other sites and some are just inspired by an IKEA and Homesens sale...

SO... Here it is after numerous hours of work...


Here is my work station, where I color, cut and assemble. Most of my products are at arms lenght, I LOVE IT !
The storage solutions for my inks are for cassettes tapes and for my other products, I used a cutlery storage rack, that we hung up on the wall. Here is a closer look:

Most of my furniture is from IKEA, I found this metal cabinet in the ''As Is'' section for a great discount price, it's perfect for storing my Martha Stewart and border punches. Also found theses gorgeous white shelves at a wednesday sale for 18$ each... What luck! they are usually price around 60$, I couldn't resist...



My hidden ribbon storage (located behind my entrance door)... I've purchased some metal storage solutions for kitchen supplies, my spool ribbons fit perfectly inside. For my ribbons by the meter, I use a plastic tag storage solution that fits well on a round  metal clip and store them by color scheme. Also, I found theses gorgeous blue storage bins that are perfect for my pens, scisors and coloring pencils and they were 0.69$ each, what a steal...
Last but not least, my IKEA table, used to layout my papers or to have a few friends over to scrap with...

As you can see... I'm really excited about new new Scraproom... and now my husband is really gonna have a hard time trearing me away from my favorite passion !!!

What a way to celebrate a 40th anniversary !

your husband is amazing! it would take "true" love to have a man clean up our messy stations! I love how neat and organized your station is! I'm so happy and a little bit jealous ha ha ha!

What a great scrapbook room. I love the utensil tray idea..when I redo my room (just painting and changing the stuff on the walls around) I am going to look for a metal one.
