Saturday Storage Share


Happy Saturday!
I have been getting tons of ideas for my future scrap area and I thought I would share some that I found.
I have been impressed more with the closed storage units then the open ones but I will share over the next few weeks the different ideas I find as well as why I chose the idea.

This one was on Pintrest and when I followed the link there was more of the whole room experience. The only piece I am taking from this is the pull out paper shelves. I am really impressed with its functionality. Whole post of her office is here: http://blog.basicgrey.com/?p=4183


I copied her info for the picture I am posting:

Just off of the corner of the main work area, you will find a space that was initially intended as a walk-in closet for this room. Here we added floor-to-ceiling cabinets with roll out shelves to house all of my 12 x 12 patterned paper and cardstock. We also added an additional work surface that allows me to pull out my die cutting and embossing machines for use on projects.
Above the roll out shelves are more cabinets. This is where I store embellishments sorted by manufacturer, letter stickers organized by color, and supplies and tools that I reach for on an occasional basis. I put everything in Iris snap-close cases. I love these things! I can stack them horizontally or vertically without worrying that items will fall out.


Its interesting to see how others store their stuff. This picture is one I appreciate due to the fact that it is realistic and functional.
The cropper hopper containers fit nicely on her pull out drawers - So easy to pull out what you need. **Brilliant idea**
The Iris containers are amazing and so helpful for those of us that have way more stuff then we of course should. I love that I had the 12X12 containers sorted by theme. I have donated to the school most of that stuff now and just have 2 boxes of favorite stuff left but they are a great way of keeping your items handy and ready to use.
I want to add that I prefer the Iris photo boxes to the 12X12 for my little embellishments and I love that it has a larger box to hold the little boxes. Here are some stock photo's from Amazon I found:



Hope you liked today share of storage ideas.....
