Anyone interested in posting what you have done to decorate and organize your work area? I am converting a spare room into a craft room and would like some ideas!

In the Gallery there is a "Scraprooms" section. It's filled with lots of ideas. Once you are in the Scraproom section of the Gallery look for the additional tabs across the top like "Storage Type" which has even more categories...
Baskets | Bins | Buckets | Cabinets | Closets | Desk | Drawers | Home Decor | Horizontal | Jars | Shelves | Totes & Bags | Trays | Vertical

I just posted two photos...My two cents
I went for a cleaner look... storing everything in a large double closet so I could close the doors. It has been surprisingly easy for me to used things from the closet & then put them back. Grab the next thing from the closet...use it & put it back. I like the up & down action as opposed to just sitting the entire time.
I am a 12 x 12 Artbin nut. I store just about everything in these bins.

Here's the link to the scraproom gallery. Someone has put a bunch of non room photos in it but you can just keep looking through.

I'm redoing mine now. I'm not repainting because I am just about done with painting...my whole downstairs and all of my hallways were recently repainted and I never see another paintbrush, I'll be happy (even though I was not the one doing the painting!!! LOL). Anyway, I am hoping to get a bunch of the Jetmax cubes at Michael's tomorrow, but I have a feeling a lot of them are gone due to the Thanksgiving day sale. Oh, well. I'm not in any hurry and will just collect a few at a time, as need be. I was also looking at Ikea storage solutions, but the measurements for most of those were not what I wanted.

This is what’s done so far, but I may make changes once I have the Jetmax cubes for the wall opposite my scrap desk.

In the above pic, I now have a clip-it-up on the upper left corner of the Meltorp table.

The above pic was taken about a year ago. I have accumulated even more pp since then, which is currently in boxes on the floor and driving me insane.

I have some storage ideas in my gallery. I organize as much as I scrap.

Here's a couple of my scraproom. I have more posted in my scraproom gallery. I stand up to scrap so a big table in the center of the room really works for me. It's a small room but with all the shelving and adequate storage it seems much bigger than it actually is. Good luck and have a great time building your scrapspace!!

I have a small room.

I used Ikea cabinets (from their kitchen collections) and created a my work area by using one of their counter tops over the bottom cabinets.

If I had a chance to replan, I would have more outlets under the upper cabinets and bring in better lighting (just got myself a desktop ott).

though I'm a li'l embarrassed to post a pic, here is one side of the room...you can see about the outlet...when I have my lamp and slice plugged in, there isn't any room for anything else.

Hi there! Here is the main photo of my scrapbook room:

Scrap Room - Main Description - By ScrapperSara22

I have more photos in my gallery with things in greater detail such as how I stored my massive chipboard stash and made a homemade clip-it-up.

Good luck and ENJOY your new room! Be sure to post photos as you progress!

I've been obsessed with this topic lately, since I picked up a mag at J's last week called ClothPaperScissors Studio. Everything from Huuuuuge spaces to tiny but efficient corners. At M's today, they still had tons of Jetmax items, and their other storage (including the Super Satchel Double Deep ArtBin, hooray!) were 40% off! I've also watched countless hours of Youtube scraproom tours looking for ideas.

How sturdy are the Jetmax items? My current big desk has my copier on it, and lots of other stuff. If I made a desk from them, would it hold it? TIA

Check out ChansGram's work table.

She recycled a tabletop and then added 8 of those JetMax storage cubes to support it. Great since it is not built in and yet portable.

Indeed a very cool idea with plenty of extra customized storage underneath.

It is good that you have used IKEA as your cabinet because it is more convenient for me than other kinds. I think to have better lighting you could arrange your furniture where-in it won't block the rooms lighting. You can also add more bulbs too if you like so you won't have to rearrange your furniture.

I can't wait to get my own scrap room instead of a scrap corner : )

My scrap room is in the unfinished part of our basement.... Huge room, just wish it was finished =] I also wish all my scrap furniture matched but it doesn't.... I have four desks and two ikea bookshelves then a sewing table with my sewing machine and serger and a big cutting table with a cutting mat. All of which are different colors lol. IF I keep any of it when we finish that half of the basement I'll be painting them all to match.

One of my favorite rooms that I bookmarked is here:

Oh...the plans and ideas I have for a scrapbook room. Currently all I have is two tv armoires that I need to pull my things out and scrap at the kitchen table. (I can't even get into my cabinets right now because of the stack of Christmas presents waiting to be wrapped!)

Most important thing in my book is cabinets to house your goodies and lots of counter space.

I like the idea of a BIG table in the center of the room to do my scrapping on(I have a large cutting table that I used to scrapbook on) and then some cupboard style cabinets with counter top, to have easy access to die cut machines and other frequently used tools.
