(I am not sure if this is "reconstructed" or not. It is . . . embellished I suppose)

For my day job, I work at a school, and this past weekend they wanted to clean out the storage sheds full of old classroom furniture, so they sent an email to the faculty and staff that if you wanted anything just come and get it for FREE!  So of course I was all on that. Boyfriend and I borrowed his dad's truck and we got some file cabinets, a few tables, some other boring stuff, and this awesome cubby organizer! With THIRTY cubbies! And then Hobby Lobby was having a sale on craft storage boxes, and Michaels had a pack of Amy Butler scrapbook paper I really liked. I cut the paper for the fronts and attached it with photo corners, just in case I one day decide to change the color scheme (which I probably will, knowing me)

Right now the only place for it is next to my desk and blocking the window, but the only person who ever uses that window is my cat and he's fine with sitting on top of the cubbies. Now I have storage for all my Etsy store inventory and supplies, and even a few empty boxes just waiting for me to make more stuff! Yay!





Should I feel guilty that I'm more excited about this piece of furniture than I was when my nephew was born?

What a lovely storage solution!  May I ask how you know what is in each box?

I am more like emilyjp--I have my stuff out in sight so I always look messy but I know where everything is! Cheesy

Love those cabinets! I really like what you did with it ^^
I have everything stored in boxes in random places around the house, so I'm not that organized ... (not having your own room is a big disadvantage if you're a craftster ...)

Well since I left the lids off, I can see down into them from my chair. And I also have them organized in a way that makes sense to me. Most of them have coasters in them, and they're sorted by theme, so I really only need to be able to see the front set to know which box to pull out.

Nephew's aren't all that hard to come by compared to an awesome organizer like that; so no, you shouldn't feel a bit guilty.  Should I feel guilty that I am sitting here green with envy and wishing that were mine instead of yours? Smiley

This is so GREAT!! I love the paper choices you went with. Ooooo I want one!

If I were you, I wouldn't be able to leave any of them empty Smiley. I think I'd have to run off to the craft store to get items to fill each cubby!!!

That is sooo beautifully done! I wish I could get one of those storage cabinets! The way you chose the papers is fabulous!
I think I could enjoy it in my space exactly as you have it!
