Lookie What I Got!

I've wanted something for storing my Big Shot dies for sometime now, well actually a year, and tried several different things, but nothing seemed to be working the way I wanted. The other day while doing some web surfing I came across something, but it still was not quite what I had in mind since I do own a few dies and I'm sure more are in my future. *grin* So I started talking to my Daddy and this is what we came up with. Isn't it just the best? I will admit it is rather large, but I want it to be able to hold more dies down the road and have it be practical and look nice too. I am just so tickled with it. The only thing better would be if I was moving it into my house today with a completely restored stamp room. *wink*




This shows the top section for holding the thin dies and that little piece in there is actually movable so as my collection grows the little bar moves.


There is a lazy susan turntable on the bottom so that it completely swivels. I'm thinking that maybe a few decor elements on it for decoration? We'll have to see. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Hope you're having a good Saturday.
Renee

Renee, I havent visited your blog for a while so I have enjoyed looking at all your latest beautiful work! I totally love your storage unit and wish I had a handyman who could make one for me. We are having a new house built and I am thinking of storage for my new craft room already LOL!

Hugs, Jean

The storage unit is gorgeous! Your dad did a beautiful job. The wood grain is so pretty, I wouldn't put any decal at all on it. I hope you enjoy his lovely gift! Thanks for sharing.

You're so lucky. May I inquire what the finished size of the unit is? Your dad can give Stampinthings.com a run for her money :o)

Wow, Renee, please congratulate your dad on a job well done! This organizational system is awesome!! I love how you have a smaller section on top with a plate you can push back as the collection grows! Fantastic creation! :D

TFS!
