My scrapbook nook

Today I'm giving you a peek inside my own home. I love my little scrapbook nook, it is neatly tucked in the corner of our finished basement. We use our basement mostly as a second family room and the kids play all their video games here. I like being able to scrapbook and still be with my family.





My eight year old daughter enjoys crafting and scrapbooking as well so I set her up a little art table beside mine. I painted the top of her table with chalkboard paint! She also has a plastic storage tower with all her supplies in it!

Jars are perfect for storing items like ribbon, stamps, and buttons!
All my storage boxes are labeled so I can easily find what I am looking for.
The back side of my nook holds my computer (my husband built a frame for my computer monitor) and my cricut machine.


Have a great Wednesday!

  1. It looks really nice. I love how you have a table and storage for your daughter. My little girl is 7 1/2 and just started her first scrapbook. She loves to come into my space to work on it.

  5. I totally just pinned this to my craft room/office board on Pinterest! I have a 3 1/2 month old little girl and I hope to have a space for the two of us to craft together too one of these days. Did your desk/shelf combo come from IKEA? I've been eyeing one just like it from there. Thanks for the inspiration! It looks just amazing! :)

    1. haha...yes it gets really messy when I'm scrapbooking. Papers and photos all over the place! That's why I love it in the basement. If I don't clean up right away guests don't see it!

  24. Great job on your room! I've pinned ya as an idea for my own room. Can I ask a question - How did you make space for the printer in the book shelf? It looks like an expedit from ikea -did you just cut one of the cubbies open? Curious! THanks! mrsmomomma@aol.com

    1. Yes when we were assembling the bookcase we just left out one of the dividers and it was the perfect size for our printer!
