Previously, you saw my biggest chalk paint project. If you missed it, here it is again. Chalk Paint Armoire DIY Project Tutorial I wanted to share with you what I am using this armoire for. It's a standing scrapbooking station.
Make Your Own Scrapbooking Station
Pick Out Your Favorite Wallpaper:
I used Brewster Home Fashions NuWallpaper(TM) Wall POPS! to cover the back inside of the armoire and the doors. It was called, "Suzani". There are many patterns though you can find. This one matches nicely with my gray paint.
I also went out to my nearby wholesale store and found a variety of stacking fabric boxes. I used several of them to store papers and other supplies.
Make Your Own Sticker Holder:
I had several sticker rolls and needed a place to store them. So, I made this to hold all my decorative tape. It consists of a foot from a sofa I bought on sale years ago on sale and a dowel. My husband and I made this in 15 minutes. We drilled the hole the same size as the screw in the foot and then glued and screwed the dowel into the foot. Then we spray painted it and let it dry. Here's the finished product. What do you think?
Divide Up The Stickers Into Categories:
I found great plastic bins to organize my scrapbooking stickers that were on sale at a nearby fabric store. I love stickers but I don't like it when I can't find what I am looking for. I divided it into 6 different categories: Words, Numbers, Letters, Vacation, School, Holiday By reduces the amount of searching, it has saved me so much time.
Store Scrapbook sheets upright:
I also like to put all the scrapbook papers upright to help me see what I have. For the other sizes, I stored them in boxes to keep them clear of dust since I do not use them as much.
Here is the workstation area. It's enough room so I can layout my scrapbook page and work on it one at a time. And, when I am done for the day, I can just close the doors. Woo hoo!
