Requesting Help!

Hi everyone! I am needing your help... I am in the market for a nice crafting-cabinet-type thingie (similar to the one shown here, only not in yellow!). My loyal readers may remember my private stamping room back in Texas. Well, I don't have that anymore. (Instead, I get to look at beautiful mountains, so it's a good trade!) But, my white tables do not look so good in our basement corner and I'm wanting to find something that works better. I would prefer one of those armoir-type cabinets that can close up when not in use. Here is a website I found, and although theirs are gorgeous, they're a bit too pricey for me right now.

So, does anyone have a good place for me to look? Leave a comment - and if someone directs me to the place I buy from, I'll send you an extra special goodie in the mail! (so be sure to leave an e-mail addy or another way for me to contact you!)

From one crafter to another, I thank you!

Scrapboxes are very popular right now.I think that they are kind of pricy but then again they include all the drawers. http://www.theoriginalscrapbox.com/

Do you have an IKEA near you? I seem to recall that SU decked out one of their armoires for crafting in a recent Stampin' Success or at convention, maybe? I know I've seen photos somewhere. But IKEA tends to be pretty within-budget, if you can get to one.

I have the scrapbox and thoroughly enjoy it's different storage areas. The only thing I wish I had is open shelving to store the SU box sets. I find it a little cumbersome (due to the different sizes of boxes) in locating specific sets even though they are in alpha order and labeled. I don't think it's as pricey as the one you identified. Contact me if you need more info or insight.

I also have the Original Scrapbox and really love it since I don't have my own stamp room.

You can see pics of mine on my blog - http://stampinwithbec.blogspot.com/2008/07/my-best-birthday-present-ever-scrapbox.html

Is it possible to repaint what you already have? Just a thought.

Hi, I actually have the Hobby Hideaway. They are pricy but the desk is so awesome and well worth it. I called and talked with them and they gave me $200 off the price. I went with them because of the desk and I also wanted something that would last (not made out of particle board). Now I don't have to clean up my sewing or scrapbooking - just close the doors.

Are you a member of Split Coast Stampers or SCS? Here's how to get there:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com They offer a wealth of information on organization, products to buy and where to get them or just how to reorganize with what you currently have!
Good Luck!
