Stamp Room Reveal

This weekend, my husband and I worked CRAZY hard to get my new stamp room up and running.  There are a few things that still need to make their way over here, but for the most part, it's ready to go!  Here is the big reveal...

First, I'd like to give a shout out to the fabulous helpers, Latte and Gandy who thoroughly inspected EVERYTHING to make sure it was safe for Momma.  Here is Latte performing her duties.  Gandy is currently on guard outside to ensure no one steals from Momma.
As you come in the door, and take a right, you are greeted by my computer desk.
As well as the back side of the Cricut and printing station.  Having the Cricut there allows the mat to feed fully, as well as run the Design Studio software, as it's connected to the computer.
And then the front side of the Cricut station... 
Sorry the picture is at a crazy angle - there isn't enough room to step back to take the photo, because the cutting is station is there.
And on the wall are paints, glitter (shudder), and Glimmer Mist, as well as a hand-painted seascape.  This is painted on wood, and I got it from a street vendor in Croatia.  Isn't is gorgeous?!
The cutting table is built on bookcases, so there is TONS of storage down below.  Continuing on, you hit the main event - the paper station and stamp desk.  Most of my loose ribbon is on the Ribbon Rack there were it's easy to see, along with my Copics.  My Color Laser printer is in the cubbie, and my patterned paper stacks are above it.
The paper is against the back wall, so it's shielded from direct sunlight and won't fade the paper.  The boxes above house things I need to mail ASAP and Card stock back stock.
And finally, my stamp desk! Oh how clean it looks (I'm sure THAT will change VERY soon!)
But wait, there's LOTS more!  Next, is my sewing station.  I don't sew on anything but cards, so I'm not worried about the lack of real sewing table.  That dresser is the only piece of furniture that didn't come from IKEA in here.
The drawers in the dresser hold material, felt, and odds & ends.  And last but certainly not least is the newly redesigned closet...
My punch rack is on the wall.
And the other wall houses little "things" that haven't been moved over completely just yet. :)
Sorry about the red glow on that - I took that pic this morning at sunrise.
Hopefully some fabulous creations will come out of this room now that it's organized.  Here is the very first creation to be made here:
All of my black boxes are tagged this way, so I know what's inside.  The red boxes have windows built in to them, but I'm sure they'll get something too.  I'm also sure these will be revised about 100 times before this stamp room is retired. :)
In any event, if you have any questions about what something is that you want to put in your room, let me know.  Have a great day and happy creating!

Just came acros this post on Pinterest and was wondering if you just didn't put in one of the shelf dividers so that your cricut would fit and is it still sturdy enough? I have a small room to work with as well and yours looks amazing.
