TO THIS----> After seven days of decluttering, packing, storing, and staging this is how my office looked. It was wonderful. Except for one thing. Ninety percent of my scrapbook supplies were gone. The result it looked real pretty, blended with the rest of the house perfectly, but I couldn't scrapbook anymore! When we decided to stay put we moved all of this upstairs to my new scrapbooking room in one weekend. Everything fit like a glove. I continued my search for black lacquer furniture, black leather containers and stainless and pewter accents to pull it all together. What do you think? If you haven't seen what it looks like now check out the link on the middle right of this page in the organization section. Simply Scrapbook Organizing 4 U and you will see how a lot of hard work came together to create a room filled with a lot of joy for me. Yes, it's black! I love black. I know it's hard to take for some people but if you look at the first pictures of all of the mixed containers - plastic, cardboard, glass, wood and all of the colours of the supplies in the open--it's hard to find your way around to anything without seeing chaos. My brain just couldn't work that way in such a small space. If I had a larger space then I would certainly display more of my supplies. That would make them easier to get to and use in many cases. I don't. So, this is what I came up with, and it works great 4 me! Simply.Marie
