As embarrassing as it is, I'm sharing the before and after pics. Our basement is unfinished and I've grown to hate scrapping down there. Unfortunately, I have no choice. There's not enough room for my crap upstairs. When I came up with this idea years ago I loved to escape to this space. Now I hate the icky walls and floor and bad lighting. I just have to make do.
Crap dumped everywhere.
My table belongs in that empty space. There's normally an old rug on the floor. We had a little incident with water backing up over the weekend and it got wet. I'll put it back when it's dry. But can you see why I think this is gross?
After sweeping, dusting, and putting stuff back where it belongs it now looks like this.
Oliver checking out my scrap table...
The plastic bags on the table have paper and stuff that I bought and still need to put away. I ran out of time yesterday. The cardboard box is something I bought about 5 years ago and never used so I'm going to sell it. I plan to have a destash sale right here on this blog so be sure to follow it! I'm going to offer stuff here first to save on fees. Whatever doesn't sell will go on ebay, Etsy or in my tag sale next month.
This is my daughter's scrap table. Oliver was so excited to check everything out.
Now I have a question for those of you who have a huge stash of letter stickers. Where the hell do you store them? I currently keep mine in two 3" binders. They keep sliding out of the page protectors. They also just plain don't fit anymore because I have so many. I'm looking for a low budget solution. If you've got a suggestion, please leave me a comment! As you can see, this is not working. They're busting right out of the binders.
Don't forget to keep checking back here. I'm going to get rid of a lot of my
crap scrapbook supplies that I no longer want.
