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!

What a nice stamping surface you have here, and I really am glad to see those letters up on your wall and not hearing any more thuds from falling down! Pretty ingenious to have them all on that shelf. I am also admiring your cute basket to hold cards, that is a good idea, and one I may have to look for myself! Lovely room, and I agree, we who have a room to stamp are so blessed!

Looks so cozy and wonderful...I love the white accessories against your colored walls......It's so clean! I double dawg dare you to take a picture and upload it after you have made a goofy Monday challenge card that we all have to make for a challenge we are struggling with! The letters are cool...perfect above the window!
