My Revised Stamp Room! Video and links!

I know you probably heard me talk about changing my room on some of my videos. This started back in January of 2022. I really wanted cabinets! My husband and I decided it was time to start.

I did so much research, wrote down measurements of everything. I actually made an amateur blueprint! The biggest thing for me was to get more work space. Before, I was using both my desks when I was making something. It included the desk I made my videos on. So when I needed to make a video, I had to clean up the desk.

I might put in upper cabinets, but for now I’m just going to see how this all works.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Edited to add- one of the most common questions- what color is my room? Rainwash by Sherwin-Williams!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You can see these pictures, and pictures of my former rooms all the time- there’s a link on the side (from a computer) or on the bottom (from a phone) called “my stamp room”.

Here’s a video of my room:

 

 


That’s a happy me in my new room!

This was one of my best ideas of all time. I used to store my scraps in folders by family (brights, subtles, etc.) I realized it would be much easier if each color had it’s own folder/pocket. Here’s what I use (I use the 8.5×11 portrait size for the scraps) :

How I store my dies and 12×12 DSP. This changed for the good, too. My dies are so much easier to see and manage.

I use those boxes for my classes. The long basket holds envelopes. I got the basket from Pottery Barn Kids many years ago. Those long baskets are meant for diapers!

Here’s the boxes I use for my classes:

Another long basket for Embossing Folders.

I saw this Scalloped Pin Board on Pottery Barn Kids. Even though my kids are not kids, I still go on PBK once in a while. Some of the things at Pottery Barn Kids are not just for kids!

I have mostly personal stuff on it- pictures of my family, things my boys made for me. And, yes, a note my husband left me when he went to work one day. 🙂

  1. Love it! Thanks for the tour. I got some storage ideas from looking at your room. My big issue is retired stuff…. I have so much of it and new is intermingled with old. I need to separate it. I keep it though because I help run a local stamp club (not geared towards selling SU). I do believe I have more than is reasonable though.

  2. Love, love, love your room! I have some of the same items you do but got some great ideas for others. Can you tell me where you got your bank of cabinets (exactly the size I need for my room) and what color paint are your walls? I think I need a change.
    Thank you for sharing!

  3. Erin, your room is so inspiring! Thank you for sharing!
    I was wondering what color paint you used… it is so peaceful and calming 🌻

  4. Very nice room. Don'[t you just love being organized? You did a great job on your video and photos sharing your space; However, you didn’t mention the hanging card displays. Are these something you bought or made? I tried to make a round one but the crossing nylon threads couldn’t hold the card weight for very long. I also like the “clothes line” look.

    1. Thank you!

      Oops! I should have put the link on there. Let me find where I got them. Check back in a few and I’ll have the link there.

  5. Thanks so much. You put all of this work into something and then of course someone wants the one thing you didn’t do/include. LOL! Happens to me a lot. By the way, the links and photos are very helpful. Happy Crafting!!!!

  6. Love your new craft room! May I ask where you got your desk lamps from. I can’t seem to fine suitable lighting for my crafting space. Love, love, love the color of your walls!
