I BOUGHT ONE! I just could not pass it up!
---------------------

I am thinking this might be a great solution to my new, reduced studio space.

Would love to hear from those that think it is heavenly and those that thought it was the devil.

It worries me if not a single person in Pealand isn't piping up to say how much they love it!

Sorry, just woke up from a post BF nap, lol!

I've had my workbox for about 6 mos. It holds a phenomenal volume of stuff and is super easy to get to things. Mine is in the basement and on carpet, so it is able to stay semi open most of the time. It is pretty heavy when loaded and a bit difficult to wing open and closed on the nubby carpet.

There is a $200 off code today, but I think for only limited hours.

MEMEMEME! Love it!!

I post on almost every one of these threads - I'm afraid people will think I work for the company.

It has, without exaggerating, changed my scrappin' life. It really does hold an incredible amount of stuff, and it's really designed for scrappers. Having everything organized and within arm's reach is heavenly. I am a disorganized person by nature, but even I can keep my stuff in order in my WorkBox.

I've had mine for a couple of years. It's on hardwood floor, so pretty easy to open and close. I sometimes set up and break down the desk a couple of times a day - it's that easy. You can push your stuff to the back of the desk and close it up, so you can have a work-in-progress. I used to hate having to undo and carefully stash my unfinished work on bookshelves, etc. when I worked on the dining table.

Go for it!

Are you kidding? I LOVE my WorkBox. The BESt investment I've ever made relating to scrapbooking. I emptied 99% of all my plastic storage boxes/bins and almost everything I own fits into my WorkBox. You won't be sorry, the $$$ is very well spent. The great thing is all shelves are adjustable and you can change everything around for what you need.

I've been looking at getting the Workbox for some time now. Money has always set me back though. But I decided enough was enough and I applied for a small loan in order to get this thing. That's how bad I want one. LOL

I'm still waiting to hear from the bank, but I'm pretty optimistic that the loan will go through. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Mine will also be in my basement. Right now, I have three of those rolling Iris carts with all my scrapbook paper in it, I have a big desk that has stuff just piled on the top of and the 5 drawers are just crammed with stuff and two long tables that have albums, stamps, big shot, stuff & more stuff plus I have a bookshelf that houses my cricut and all of my cartridges. I have a space about *thisbig* to actually craft on, on one of my tables. It's not a pretty sight. And forget about actually knowing what I have and finding it when I need it. OH MY!!!

So I think it is about time that I get this little lovely into my house so I can get myself organized and get back to scrapping & stamping!!!

Sounds like it is the right choice!

I thought for SURE someone would come on and just blast it and tell me all the things wrong with it.

Thanks, Peas!!

Assembly is definitely a two person job. It's not difficult if you will watch the video and make sure you have all your parts organized. I put mine together by myself, but it was a struggle. Once assembled the sections are very heavy.
I'm stubborn, my dh was out of town for the weekend and I just did it myself.. I won't do it again, tho..

I have a craftbox? (the smaller of the two), and it does hold a TON of stuff. I love it, even though its in storage right now (boooo.. no room in our current apartment). I had plenty of room in it.

Though I think it really depends. I have an island also and between those and items from several dt at the time (as well as quite a bit of fine art stuff), it was plenty to hold everything. If I didn't have the island, I might have gone for the larger.

Thanks! And I actually am excited! Three weeks to ship and then he said it might be another few days to arrive, but I will have a tracking number within 3 weeks. I did save a few hundred. I initially was having a hard time deciding, but I had made a list of the pieces I wanted to buy and make my new, smaller spot work and I realized for about 200 more I could have the Workbox and that just made the most sense! I went back and forth on beadboard or flat panel and the guy on the phone said something that made me know the flat panel was for me and I gave him my CC as fast as I could!

It has been hard to move into a smaller studio and I think this is going to make it not seem hard at all!

Whee! Happy for you. Think this'll be the longest 3 weeks ever? Talk about feeling like a kid waiting for Christmas! Maybe you could pass the time by taking the drawers' dimensions & planning how you'll fill them all....
