I used to make a huge mess on the dining room table everytime I wanted to scrapbook. And the mess stayed there for as long as it took me to finish my project--which often times was several weeks since I only had snatches of time to scrapbook.
Then, I got the green-light for converting one of our rooms into an official Scrapbook Room. It doesn't have a bed, nor a chest of drawers, nor a clothes closet. Just scrapbook paraphenailia around a giant four-person desk. Ah ... heaven on earth. :)
When I first began to put the room together, the biggest challenge was finding a piece of furniture deep enough (and wide enough) to hold my 12x12 scrapbook paper and my scrapbook albums. About that time, Michaels Craft Store began to carry Jetmax Modulars.
They are cubes specifically designed to hold scrapbook paper & albums and they fit together using dowels. So, every Birthday, Christmas, Mother's Day, and Valentines, I would get one or two more cubicles. And when Michaels had their 40% off sale, I'd stock up on a couple more.
Now, I have a whole wall full of them. And guess what? Michaels is having their 40% off sale this week! (Sunday, Jan 22 - Saturday Jan 28). AND if you go to their website, you can find a 25% Off Your Entire Purchase coupon. So, if you've been wanting to build one, now would be a great time to get started.
I will warn you, though, the dowels don't hold the vertical columns together very well. So, I went to Home Depot and had a piece of wood cut to the dimension of my cabinet, then I used it as a base to stack everything on. You will find that much more secure than carpet.
Even if you don't have a specific room to scrapbook in, this modular is nice looking and can fit against any wall. I really love mine! Happy shopping!
