Scrapbooking Organizing Tower - Swivels 360°


Today I wanted to share with you the second cabinet that my Dad built for me.  If you read my blog you know that he scored some "free" lazy susan's from some old eyeglass cabinets being thrown away, and we were able to build not one, but two cabinets.  Here is a link to my previous post, Gaming Tower Swivel Cabinet.  You will find all of the instructions for making these cabinets.  They were inspired from Pottery Barn Teen, but without the high price tag.

Scrapbook Organizing Tower - Swivels 360°

The front of this unit houses my plastic scrapbook organizers.  I organize alot of my scrapbook materials together because they are themed.  For instance, I am doing a "My School Years" scrapbook for my son and all I have to do at the end of the school year is grab the plastic bin that has all of the materials in it.  It's so easy to just grab the container and know that I have everything there I need to finish the pages.



If you don't have a label maker, I urge you to invest in one...I use it all the time in my house!


I re-purposed these Pottery Barn baskets that used to be in my son's nursery.  They were a baby blue color, but I spray painted them white and labeled them with chalkboard labels.



This is one of the sides that has peg board.  I simply just placed alot of my painting supplies on this side along with some decorative tapes.  I am going to eventually do something on the bottom, just not sure yet!



I embellished some plastic jars with washi tape and hot glued a decorative gem to it.  Now my paint brushed are easy to reach and look cute too!



This is the back side of the cabinet.  It has a sheet of cork that I can display a page layout or anything my son has made me.



I took some of the decorative plastic gems and hot glued them to some flat thumbtacks to make them prettier.


The only thing different with this cabinet, is that we added three knobs to the back.  I am currently hanging a scrapbook bag and my apron on them.


The other side also has peg board.  I am using this side to hang my cricut supplies and my big paper cutter.  I love that I can hang my paper cuter because sometimes it just gets in the way on my table or floor and was never in the same place when I needed it.  Now I know exactly where it is at all times.


Here is a collage of all four sides.
