A Scrapbooking Space with a Vintage Vibe

An odd-shaped attic and a case of plastic-phobia made storage a challenge in Scrapbooks Etc. contributing editor Erikia Ghumm's plans for a scrapbook workplace. But her keen eye for vintage finds and a homespun sense of style turned this challenging spot into her favorite room in the house.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • A Storage Hiding Spot

      A spray-painted curtain rod covered in colorful vintage fabrics hides plastic drawers from view.

    • Setting the Vintage Vibe

      Erikia rustled up bins and boxes from secondhand stores, estate sales, antiques shops, and friends. Old fruit and soda crates organize paints and albums, while colored boxes store old family photographs by date.

    • Getting the Rustic Look

      Erikia "beat up" this collection of storage cubes with alcohol ink and then replaced contemporary hardware with glass knobs.

    • Add a Splash of Color

      Colorful locker bins hide "messy" items, such as accents, books, and cardmaking supplies. Below the bins, photo boxes hold old family pictures and negatives.

    • A Secret Stash

      Old suitcases with "luggage tag" labels stash everything from photos to beads stacked in boxes.

    • Show Off Your Collections

      From her kitschy snow-globe collection to the state plates on display, Erikia Ghumm's scrapbooking room fondly recalls another era. "I've always loved old things, ever since I was little," Erikia says. She personalizes her storage solutions with her creations, such as the tags on this wooden crate.

    • Reuse Tins and Jars

      Buttons and stamps are stored in old cookie tins piled on a vintage cake stand for convenience and style.

    • Out-of-the-Ordinary Paint Holders

      Rather than having a mess of paint bottles cluttering her workspace, Erikia turned the supplies into tidy dots of color in vintage soda boxes. She groups them by hue to make them easier to locate -- and nicer to look at. "It's less busy this way," she says.

    • Embellishment Holders

      Small items like eyelets and brads are easily retrievable in tiny jars housed in square tins.
