Updated Room *Ü*

 nrpictMy new and improved wall area 🙂

I have added numbers to this picture and below are the cabinets.. Hopefully this will help some of you asking the questions

  1. IKEA Hensvik: x3 only added the decorative top to the top one, just hung all three seperate on the wall.. on the bottom one they are supported by 4 decorative shelf supports by Homebase.
  2. IKEA  Flaren bathroom cabinets, found at the bargain corner.. ex display units 🙂
  3. Best craft organisers from Storage 4 Crafts
  4. IKEA chest by Fira.. decorated with scraps of papers [x 3].
  5. Storage 4 Crafts [Best Craft organisers]
  6. IKEA  Malm bedroom furniture chest of drawers.. very big, handy with inserts [see picture below]
  7. IKEA Trofast wall storage [x2] with baskets [and lids]


These are 3x Agen basket.. they fit perfect underneath the Hensvik shelves.. decorated with brown and pink ribbon 🙂


My desk area, with on your left my SU storage carousell.. on the right you can just about see my IKEA stationary chest.. i have decorated them with IMM, BG and Imaginesce papers.. they hold my copic pens, stamp pads, bling, sticklers and mixed small embellies 🙂 Underneath.. again.. Storage 4 Crafts [Best Craft] units.


Back of my room.. stamp storage [in white drawers] and bead storage in other cabinets.

The large pink boxes are now full of craft magazines… I just can’t let go off those!!!

Some inside drawers peeks:




So much more organised now!!! *Ü*

And last but not least i’ve had some big Creative Imaginations wood words ‘CREATE’

I’ve decorated each letter with different BG bittersweet papers, decorated with ribbon and flowers and stuck it on the wall just above the window 🙂


Might put a couple of Gorjuss girls to these letters.. but for now they stay like this 🙂

So… this is how my room is tonight.. what do you think?

i’m really happy, can just sit and look at it all for hours…lol

I’m off for an early night.. hope to be back tomorrow evening with lots to tell you all…

For now big hugs and sleep well!

Hugs, Marlene x

    Wow Marlene, This is like dying and going to heaven – stamping heaven LOL
    I am soooooooo envious of you. My craft room went when my daughter came back home to live after 5 years away and now I’m crafting on a table in the corner of my bedroom – husband says it drives him crazy not knowing whether he’ll end up covered in glitter or get bitten by a punch!!
    Have loads of fun – what an inspirational palace!

    Oh wow Marlene, you are one lucky lady! How on earth do you remember where everything is??!! I bet you’re forever coming across bits you forgot you ever had!! It looks amazing.

  • Pauline


    I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now. You make fantastic cards (the ones in Craft Stamper the other month were just lovely) and now you have a fantastic creative space.

    Like some of the others my DH thinks I have way too much craft stash…I simply have to show him your pics. Soooo envious. I’d be in stamping heaven.

    One question, do you have your copics stored in empty copic desk stands? As close as I looked it wasn’t clear from the picture.

    Pauline x

  • Linda S. in NE

  • Sam

    You are soooo lucky. What an amazing room, it looked good before but even better now, defo worth all your hard work! I wish mine was as organised, did a quick trip to new Ikea store last weekend, think I need to go back and get some more storage. I would really love some of those units from Storage 4 Crafts but need to win the lottery first, and could do with one of the kids moving out so I can have a bigger room. I have loads of craft mags also, as I can’t bear to part with them!

    Sam x
