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, as well as some fun items, such as the bowling pins given to me for my 50th birthday.
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!

How nice to inherit a piece of furniture that you can fit into your room, it's a great way to showcase those cards, I think I recognize one of them! And your stamp storage is one I would like also, it looks perfect because it holds everything, the marker, the pad, and the reinker. I wonder if they make one in carousel fashion? Great organization here!

Wow! That hutch is perfect! How cool to be fortunate enough to get that from your sister in law's upgrade in her dining room! It's cool to see your new rack. It's so cool Bertie, love the color of the walls.....you will have such fun adding this and adding that! It's awesome!

Very nice. I like the stamp pad rack. My hubby made one for me, but didn't include the marker and reinker space. He told me not to ask for anymore of these. He would have had a cow if I had asked for the extra's. Love the color of your room. Looks so calm refreshing.
