Love IKEA???

One entire side of my craft room is now storage and so amazingly functional due to a trip to IKEA in Illinois. It was a horrible trip... the traffic was awful just leaving Wisconsin. The traffic was awful around Chicago. The store was experiencing a brown-out so less than half the lights were on and it was about 95 degrees inside... AND although the checkout lines were all open, people and carts went 30+ back for EACH checker!

But in the long run and through all the hassle, we brought home a 5x5 EXPEDIT as well as a 2x4 EXPEDIT with DESK attachment. And I LOVE THEM!!!!

From top to bottom, the larger bookcase holds all my scrapbooks to complete (Creative Memories), cardstock (Stampin Up in Cropper Hopper), printed papers (also in Cropper Hopper), black leather cubes (Target) for children's craft supplies, all my Mother and Father-in-Law's photos albums for the last 20 years (that I need to scan and burn to DVD then put into SAFE albums). The Red IKEA drawer units hold my Sizzix dies.

The desk unit is my new area for die cutting and sewing as well as friend space. The bookcase cubes hold my mini-machine, my sizzix, my sizzlets... and under... project buckets. The desk is quite deep so I easily have room for the MakingMemories 17x23 self-healing mat as well as some great buckets (Target Dollar aisle) for adhesives and decorative scissors my kids still use and love.
I love love love this side of the room!!! What do you think???
