Sorry I haven’t had a chance to get on earlier girls! We were gone most of the day yesterday and then I was working in the basement.
Since we’re usually a little slow on the weekends, I figured we’d take a look at furniture in your scrap space! What do you have? Desk? Table? Hutch? Do you have any shelving or other storage solutions to share?
I was scrapping on a computer desk with hutch and switched to a big flat table/desk which is so much nicer to be able to spread out.
Additionally I have 2 book shelves though I’d love to get this book case from Ikea and maybe even the desk that goes with it!

I also have a cropper hopper cart and a similar cart that has 12x12 drawers that isn’t by cropper hopper but minus the colors is the same thing. The difference is that it cost $25 at sam’s compared to $80 for the cropper hopper one!

If money were no object I’d love this

And a scrapbox would be fantastic, too!

i have a book case like the one you pictured from ikea but not in white, i would love it in white though for my new space. I wish i had that cart in 12x12 but i can't can never find the 12x12 one. the easy view desk looks awesome as does the scrapbox but wow that is pricey

Thank you bokkechick for my fantastic Siggy

I have a regular computer desk (it's very large) and Ive taken the top media storage part off another desk and stacked it one mine. I've also set a dvd storage shelf on top of my desk for my cricut carts. I think the room is adequate, but I need more nooks and crannys in it. It all just flat surfaces I pile stuff on.

I will be building something like that first shelf set you've shown at my next home (this summer)

I have a desk (got it from DH`s grandma, & painted it white), 2 bookshelves & then I was about to yard sale our change table & decided to use for storage! It has a drawer & then 2 shelves below. I share a wall in our entrance with our computer & desk, so I also have a corner desk to deal with too. Then I have 2 plastic drawer towers (1 has 3 deep drawers, the other has 2 deep & 2 shallow drawers).

The furniture in my space is going to look like the shelf in the original post except it's going to have a desk coming from the front. I am going to have two of these. Not sure about the rest of my space. I am getting some great ideas from these posts. Gosh, I can't wait!!

I have one of those large folding tables for my working space. I also have my great grandma's home made sewing desk which works great to keep my cricut on. I also have 2 cupboards to store stuff in, but I am really thinking about using those in another room and buying 2 5-shelf bookcases to put in their place. I think that I would be more likely to keep stuff picked up if it was out in the open insted of in a cupboard.

I have a mix of leftover furniture that I use. One is my old kitchen table that I kept when DH & I moved in together. It's a great workspace and even with the 2 paper carts on top I have plenty of work space. I also have a kitchen island with 2 barstools that fit underneath. It's great for the cricut/cuttlebug & stamping where I'm usually standing when I'm using those items. And I use a couple of end tables and an older tv stand. Basically leftover furniture that I've made use out of.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

I currently only have the hutch & my dining room table as furniture for scrapping. It's pretty lame. I would love something this though. That is really pricey, so I went on the hunt for something a little cheaper & found this.

My set up is a mix of old furniture too. I have an old kitchen table and then an old TV car next to it that my Cricut sits on...and then next to that I have my scrappaper 'towers'. I've learned that I need ALOT of space when I craft!!! LOL But I'm set up at the bottom of the stairs in my basement so it's hard to spread out.
