Just this month, I converted a small closet into a scrapbook space where I can work on my favorite hobby. I painted a wide band of color around the closet space. The interior of the closet was already a glossy white, which works well to reflect light in such a small space.
For the Fabulous Stationery card my scrap space most resembles, I chose Daisy. I love flowery, girly looking spaces, so these flower cards spoke to me. :) I could see this card on my magnetic board next to the other cards. The flower petals also reflect the scalloped boxes in my space.
I placed the desktop at a standing height because I like to work standing up or sitting on a barstool.
I installed a white plastic peg board to hold frequently used tools and covered cork board tiles with fabric for a quick bulletin board.
The scalloped boxes on the top shelf hold supplies and they are all labeled for easy reference. Most of my scrapbook supplies fit here because I mainly shop for specific projects as I need an item. I’m also ruthless about getting rid of stuff I don’t use. I store my albums elsewhere. The bookcase to the left (not shown) of my scrap closet holds sewing supplies, magazines and other misc. crafty stuff. ;)
Oh, I also threw in a “before” picture because I love before and afters!
Thanks for looking at my room and thanks for the contest–it motivated me to get my space completed in less than a month! I had a lot of fun!!
