After years of working at the kitchen table and transitioning from a closet shelf to a full armoire of storage space, when we moved into this house my husband and I finally had a shared office. Initially we had a pretty even split of the room but all added storage was for me and suddenly I controlled about 75% of the space.
Don't feel too bad for him. He moved into a much bigger room with a TV and couch and also uses 75% of our master bedroom closet space.
This photo from the door gives a nice overview of the room including the pup's second bed. In the before times she would always sit in my doorway when I was crafting and was thrilled when I brought in the bed so she could join me in the room. Now that we're rarely home alone she isn't spending as much time here.
One early, smart decision was to remove the closet doors so a 4x4 IKEA Expedit storage unit would fit along the window wall. This holds all my paper, most stamps, dies, embossing folders, stencils, Zig brushes, colored pencils, stamp platform and extra adhesives.
I might rearrange the categories every now and then, but have found Jennifer McGuire's fridge bins and storage pocket idea to be a winner.
I hope you hop along and comment at every stop by Thursday, February 25th at 11:59 pm CST for an opportunity to win at $20 gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp!
