Remodeled Stamping Room

I still have lots of boxes to go through and bring in the iris carts and mounted stamp cabinets. 
My vintage cabinet is getting new paint and different knobs and will go in space below shelves. 

Here is my vintage cabinet with fresh paint and vintage glass knobs from my stash. 
Top of cabinet has my Tim Holtz dies 

This is my table with Genesis trimmer and Vagabond. I made my little rabbit. He is watching over my stamping room. 

I noticed my floor started dropping in center of my crafting room, my hubby thought it was due to too many stamp supplies and my large solid oak school desk. It took us over a month to remove everything including that heavy desk because I have a two bulging disk and pinched nerve in lower back and just recently had laser surgery on both legs.

After we removed everything and started opening up the floor down to the joist we noticed it was near an outdoor faucet we had cut off three years ago. This was the reason the floor gave away, not my stamping supplies. A contractor replaced 6 joist and put in a new sub floor on April 7th. After they left my hubby and I put down wood laminate floor.

A few days later I gave my stamping room a fresh coat of paint on the three walls and shelves. The  commercial wall grid brackets didn't have to be removed so one wall was left as is. On three walls, I used a soft gray/green latex acrylic paint. I used buff latex acrylic on all the shelves.

It's going to take a while to get things back in my studio.


  1. Oh my, what a lot of work! So were the joists and floor rotten with moisture? We had a similar problem in one of the apartments we lived in -- a hole was created just in front of the shower because there was a leak underneath the shower stall that had been there for a long time. We had no way of knowing it was there because the water ran between subfloor and linoleum until the floor caved in. We had to go stay with relatives until the manager remodeled the bathroom and of course, that made our rent go up. It was our only bathroom! LOL!
    Did you label the boxes each of your stamps went into?

  2. By the way, I like your vintage cabinet. I think I'm going to have to find one. I had to stack my iris carts, but the plastic drawers don't move very well with heavy pressure from above.
