Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I was all set to post yesterday, but I got distracted by this beauty...

Over the last two weeks, my husband has been upcycling a piece of furniture that was given to us years ago. He completely refaced the front and customized it for my paper and stamp storage. I was so excited when he moved it into my studio yesterday!

The paper storage units slide in where drawers used to hide behind the doors. Brian is finishing up the final unit that will go in the upper left space. Once completed, I'll have 46 slots for paper! I plan to store complements and dimensional elements in the spaces next to each paper storage unit.

There was a space between the doors and the drawers when we removed all of the original molding, so Brian added a hidden shelf.

Each drawer will hold about 150 stamp sets! Brian added a divider between the rows so they don't slide around. Are you ready to see what we started with? Unfortunately, I didn't get a before photo of the Armoire, but I do have pictures of what the drawers and doors looked like.

I would say the finished product is one thousand times better! I can't wait to fill it up!

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to come back tomorrow for the Three Amigos Blog Hop!


  1. WOW WOW WOW - am I repeating myself!?!
    I think we should make Brian honorary team carpenter!

  2. What an amazing transformation. Lucky you! This is my first visit - I got here from Lisa B's blog.
