Studio Tour Featuring Nancy Damiano

Hi everyone! Nancy here with a tour of one of my favorite spaces in our home. It’s our fourth bedroom and the smallest room in the house. At just 10×11, it is tiny and packed full of my favorite things.

Since the space really needed to be maximized, I had the doors taken off of this closet in order to open up the room.  This also makes getting to things easier . The white shelving is a closet organizer that I bought at Home Depot years ago. This space houses cardstock, tools, punches, adhesives, old magazines, older embellishments by themes (in the black binders) and my Clip it Up. The drawers hold miscellaneous “stuff”, photos and bulky tools.

This is my tool workstation area. I have my sewing machine, cutting tools, computer and printer all along this one wall space.  Underneath I store projects in process, memorabilia, design team collections, and scraps. I have two large  wall shelves (old Making Memories) that hold tags, paint, mists, and basics that never go out of style.

On the other side of the room, I have an Expedit and matching desk from Ikea.  I love the wide work space and all of those cubbies hold all of my newer supplies. The clear trays hold patterned paper by collection and the brown baskets hold all of the coordinating embellishments. The paisley boxes are full of alphabets, adhesives and altered stuff.

My cardstock is stored in these huge galvanized metal bins that I bought at Lowes. I like to keep cardstock out and be able to thumb through so I can find the colors that I’m looking for. I can store a lot of cardstock in a compact space this way. There are a total of 4 bins stored around the room.And last but not least, the most important sign in the room – a reminder to keep calm!  This is my “view” when I scrap and it really does help me to remember to take things one at a time.

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting one of my favorite spaces!

    Hi there! So pretty! Could you tell me what “system” your white desk is? I need a desk with cubby slots like that… and that one might fit the bill! Thanks in advance! Julie
