Here are a few pics of my stamping room, which use to be my stepson's bedroom. It's still a work in progress, but I do like the progress so far and am very fortunate to have my own room.
The white corner hutch is a recent acquisition from my SIL who bought new furniture for her dining room.
The inkpad storage is also a new acquisition from a recent shopping trip. I've been wanting one of these for a long time and found one very reasonably priced. It's wonderful to have all of my inkpads, markers, and reinkers together in one place! I love for things to be organized!
The My Stamping Room letters are wooden that I purchased at Michaels or JoAnn's about a year ago and painted white. My DH mounted them to a thin piece of wood so they would remain steadfast on the wall.
I keep my cardstock in manila file folders so that I can keep my pieces of scraps in the same file as the yet-to-be cut-into cs, as well as keep them free from dust or sun damage.
I also have built-in wooden shelves on the third wall which holds all of my stamp pads and ribbon containers.
The fourth wall is mostly the closet, the doorway, and a small area for a stand with my tv on it.
It may not be the prettiest room, but it is certainly functional, and I feel very blessed to have it!

I see you did not waste one inch of utilized wall here, good job girl!! I also store my paper in manilla envelopes and throw the scraps in with the folder, it seems to work best for me.
I feel like I've been invited over to your house Charlene, gives me warm fuzzies to see your room done. I am sure I'll refer to these pictures often when I move on with mine!

Love your space. I see you didn't finish your stamp pad holder yet. I got a new one a year ago that holds everything, similar to yours, I was just going to ''try'' it out to see if I wanted to keep it or get something different, Wel, I still haven't stained or painted it, and I am NOT going to unload it now. Now I think it looks beautiful all ''natural''
