    • Basement Makeover Creates Fun Space

      This basement makeover started with a smart new layout that tripled the Crow family's work space. Homeowner Nick Crow built two desks on one wall and added a peninsula made of modular cubes topped with medium-density fiberboard. The cubes add loads of storage for Michelle Crow's scrapbooking supplies and the kids' toys and games. An acrylic pegboard and a carpet-tile bulletin board maximize vertical space.

    • Family Time

      Nick and Michelle Crow's basement was once a collect-all area for toys, boxes of paperwork, and computer equipment. Determined to turn the tide, the couple crafted a room where Michelle scrapbooks, Nick works, and their children, Bella and Eli, play. "It has allowed each of us to do something we enjoy yet be together as a family," Michelle says.

    • Craft Caddy

      A desk organizer makes a perfect home for a portable cardmaking kit filled with stamping supplies and embellishments.

    • On the Wall Storage

      Shelving mounted on the wall or on pegboard helps maximize counter space.

      Use pegboard accessories to add storage options, such as a bar to hold ribbon and decorative tape.

      Clip stickers and rub-ons on a clipboard that can be easily detached and taken with you.

    • Convenient Scrapbook Storage Options

      Colorful hardware caddies keep small embellishments such as buttons, brads, and eyelets contained.

      Modular cubes with slots make it easy to organize 12x12-inch paper while keeping it accessible.

    • Game Board Gallery

      Display photos or finished scrapbook pages by attaching a clip to a game board.

    • Keep Your Desk Clear

      Glue or nail carpet tiles to the wall for a colorful bulletin board to hold your inspiration, color swatches, or half-finished pages.

      Mount a spice rack on the wall or prop it on a ledge to store colorful embellishments.

      Store photos and digital scrapbooking supplies on CDs and stash them in a basket near your computer.
