New desk and stamp storage ideas...

16:51
Hi Everyone! I have been a busy bee this weekend, I have decluttered and decorated my eldest Son's Bedroom which was hard work but really worth it, it has been transformed from a smelly teenage pit to a lovely fresh grown up room, all white with red accents and a fab canvas photo of Times Square but most importantly, he loves it!
I have also been busy reorganising my craft area and stash. I am very lucky to have a little space of my own to Craft under our stairs, the desk that used to live in our bedroom just fits in the space and I have been looking for ages for storage solutions to put on it to house my most used items.


I thought small CD racks would work well stacked together and be the right size but as is always the way, could not find what I was looking for at a good price or the right size until last weekend. I popped in Poundland when I was shopping in Basingstoke to buy some foam pads and tape and there were 4 CD racks which turned out to be perfect and just £4.00 for the lot! I am so chuffed with how they look stacked up and they match some of the other boxes I have had for a while. My Promarkers are stored in pen holders from Muji which were rather expensive but do the trick.
I have also reorganised my unmounted stamps into Slim a4 Tuff Boxes which I bought from Amazon. I was using CD cases but they were a bit fiddly and difficult to label and I could only fit a couple of stamps in each box so it was all getting a bit out of hand.

I have filled 5 of these boxes already and have another 9 on the way which should keep me going for a while!
This is how the look closed and they can easily be labelled by sticking a label on the closing clips.
I have finished all my chores now so will be making my desk messy tonight as I have a DT project to make for tomorrow! I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  9. It must be the time of year for it - sorted my crrft area out too. I wonder how long it will stay so organised?!
    I got my son to make me a holder for my copics - using foam board. You can buy large sheets from Amazon and then cut it with a craft knife and stick with a glue gun. I think it might be a much cheaper option.

  10. It must be the time of year for it - I cleared my craft space too. I wonder how long it will stay so organised?!
    I got my 14 year old son to make me a holder for my copics. He used foam board (you can buy large sheets from Amazon quite cheaply) and then cut it with a craft knife and stuck it together using a glue gun or strong PVA. I'm really pleased with the result and it was quite cheap too!
