Rubber Room Renovation Part II

Yesterday I shared some photos of my newly cleaned stampin' space, but since the post was getting kind of long I decided to share the rest today. I saved my favorite part of my room for last. It's the wall with my stacking cubes. I got these at Michael's when they were on sale.  For the top, I bought a white laminated shelving piece at Lowe's and had them cut it to the size I wanted. The cubes were really easy to put together...except the ones with the four drawers, they were a bit time consuming to assemble.

Even though the four drawer units were a pain to assemble, they are my favorites. They hold my Sizzix Bigz dies perfectly. The Bigz XL do not fit in the drawers, but I have them on one of the open shelves and they fit perfectly there. I labeled the drawers using some DP and then wrote the contents on white card stock and punched it out with the Word Window Punch.
I store all of my cut up pieces of card stock in the expanding file folders on top of my storage unit. Each pocket holds 2 colors and each folder holds a Color Collection. That was a big job going through and removing all the retiring colors and re-labeling the files with the new colors...but glad it's done! I now have 2 more expanding file folders to hold all my retiring colors.
Above my card stock scraps I have a french memo board that I made. It was a fun project my Mom & I did one winter day.

All it took was a piece of foam core board, fabric, batting, ribbon, hot glue & buttons or large brads. I used Build-a-Brads for mine, and stamped the centers using my Always stamp set in colors to match my room...Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise & Regal Rose. It makes a great spot to hold photographs, sketches and cards my friends & family has made for me.

Next to my cube storage is my book case which has books - of course!, my most recent photos stored in photo boxes, mini photo albums & my music.
Next time I share my stampin' space with you I hope it's because I got ambitious enough to haul everything out of there to paint and replace the hideous carpet! I would love to paint the walls a lovely shade of celery. For now, I'm just happy to have an organized space to stamp in! Thanks for joining me on my tour!
