Progress on the stamping space

Hi everyone!

Here's an updated picture with the drawers and countertop! DH ran some outlets up so they'd be above the countertop (for my heat gun and stuff) and he wants to add some lighting underneath the cabinets that'll shine down onto the workspace (he takes such good care of me!). He's also going to build a shelf under the smaller overhead cabinets for things that I need to grab fairly often but I want out of the way when working...like my paper cutter!

It's been a lot of work this past weekend...and my house was an absolute disaster, oye!...with reorganizing and moving things around, but I'm really excited. I'm also having a lot of fun checking out the Stamping Spaces gallery on SCS for ideas on how to organize all the stamps, paper, ink pads, etc. One thing that I reeeeeally can't wait to do is put some magnetic strips on the inside of the cabinet doors for my Nestabilities dies. I saw Laurie Schmidlin did this a while ago and I TOTALLY can't wait to do the same thing. Here's a link to HER POST (pure genius!!) if you want to check it out! Ohhh, to have everything at my fingertips is gonna be great!

We bought some handles for the cabinets so those need to be added, and I need to go shopping for a tall chair too. Weee!

Sooooo cool, Denise! I am so excited for you. I am fortunate to already have a craft room, but just looking at your new stuff, makes me think I should at least clean and organize mine! Might have to do that! Can't wait to see yours when it when it is all done!

Thanks for sharing this Denise! I am in the process of "thinking" about how I want my new stamp area to look and this is quite helpful! I can't wait to hear how it works out for you!

WOW! Can I borrow your hubby for a few days! This looks amazing.

Can't wait to see the totally finished product. Live with the disarray - the final outcome will be totally worth it!

Take a picture of your face sitting at your spot with your DH when it's all done as I'm sure you will be glowing!! Koodoes to DH for all his hard work too!!

I am so excited, following the daily progress.Magnetic strips for the nestabilities. I was just griping to myself today over the way they get all jangled up. Even if my husband knew the difference between a hammer and a nail, I have no room for any kind of luxury like that.

Oh - I'd love to see how it looks when it's all done and you're moved in - so to speak.
