Tour of my craft room

Well Hello!
Today I am going to take you on a tour of my craft room. I would love your feedback on better solutions for storage if you have any by leaving a comment at end of post.
My house is quite large and now my 3 children (all boys) are all grown up and moved out I have commandeered the family room.

I have a back injury and my wonderful husband sourced an island bench that is 900mm high and he raised both my craft desk and computer desk to the same height so I do not have to sit. 

This is an overall view of the room

This is a kitchen island bench my husband bought off a buy/swap/sell site and it is an awesome height to work at.

 This bench is opposite the island and is perfect for the punch and ink storage units. This is also where I do all my crafting. Behind the ink storage I have a tripod that I can attach my phone to when doing video tutorials.

The punch and ink pad storage units are custom made by Colcraft and you can visit them on Facebook and he is in Australia.

My computer desk

I love this wall that I decorated with removable vinyl stickers

 This wall unit holds all my stamp sets an full packs of cardstock

My cardstock and Designer Series Paper storage. The two 12 x 12 paper units in the bottom shelf are from Colcraft

More DSP storage and other odds and ends

This is the top drawer in the island bench and holds all my Embossing powders. I keep the most used in ice-cream containers which saves a lot of mess, then the small jars in a basket.

 Second drawer holds all my Textured Impression Embossing Folders, Framelits, Dies and Big Z's. Also spare items for the bigshots

Basket drawer holds my most used embellishments, stamp cleaning pads an punch boards

 The 4 purple containers on the right hold various items from adhesives, ribbons, embellishments. The two on the left hold products from different companies, one of which I am a Design Team member.

In the filing cabinet my top drawer holds all my cardstock scraps for later use on small projects.

Thank you for taking this tour with me. You can now also follow me on Periscope - Angela Lorenz (@Angscraftycards). Below is a link for the video tour of room.
