Update on Scrapbook Cabinet


I just wanted to show you how far Jim has gotten with the scrapbook cabinet he is building for me.:) I will explain it again for those of you who may be seeing it for the first time.:) The slats on the top right and left are for storing my scrap papers.The slats on the top left are for 81/2 x 11 papers and the slats on the top right are for my 12x12 papers. The verticle slats in the middle are for my craft scissor cases.I have about four. The cubby hole to the right of the verticle slats will hold a box with dowel rods for storing my ribbons on.All I will have to do is roll off what I want and cut it.:) The bookshelves in the center are to store my scrapbooks in and the drawers on both sides are for storing all my scrapbook supplies. I LOVE it and can't wait to get it up here where I can fill it up.LOL Jim told me last night after sanding on it for days..that he is ready to paint it now.He was wanting to stain it but the lumber he used was difficult to find matching pieces.Some of the pieces had green wood in them.So we opted to paint it.Now I have to decide what color I want it it to be.:) I would like to have it a color that would go with any room I moved it in to. We use every inch of our house to live in with our two oldest kids still living at home...so I have all of my scrapbook supplies in the dining room.It comes in handy with the table in there to work on too.:) With such a gorgeous cabinet..it will look great!:)

Thanks for looking !!

Hugs,
Valinda

I'll bet you can't wait!!! I say pick your favorite color for your favorite piece of furniture, but it's just an idea. Nice thing about paint is you can paint little decorations on it if you are so inclined, too!
