I'm looking to replace my scrapping table with a desk that has storage. I'd love to see what you scrap on. Pictures, links or the name of your desk/where you got it from would be very helpful. I have no idea where to start!

I have mine high because I like to have the choice to stand or sit while scrapping so I chose THIS STOOL and I made my own padded back and pillow when needed. I absolutely adore my glass top table and adjustable legs. I love that I can spritz, glue, glitter, paint and it all wipes up easy and completely.

|Posted: 10/18/2013 2:28:01 PM|I'm not sure if this will be much help but I scrap on a vintage office desk from the late 60's or early 70's. I adore it! It is very large and very sturdy. In the eyelet days, I could hammer on my page without anything bouncing on the desk. It has two shallow drawers (for pens, etc) and two deep drawers for hanging files. I use one of those to store all my Thickers in hanging files and the other holds baby wipes, paper towel, tools, etc.
I got mine free when my dh's company moved locations, but I would keep my eyes open for antique stores, etc. I used to scrap on an old kitchen table, but this is so much better.

My husband made me a desk out of kitchen cabinets and some counter top.

I've had my scrap table (long-ago discontinued PB Bryce Project Table) for years. It has two full-length drawers & a shelf that's ideal for storing frequently-used tools.
You could create a relatively inexpensive, but super-functional, desk with lots of storage by placing a hollow door without knob hole, plywood cut-to-size, scrap kitchen counter (all available at home improvement stores), or pre-fab table top (Ikea Linnmon) atop two cube bookcases (e.g. Ikea 2x2 Expedit) or flat files (Ikea Alex drawer unit).

My husband put together a kitchen laminate counter with a file cabinet underneath on one side. My area also has the scrapbook shelving from ac Moore on the left against a wall. Picture an L. In the corner is a shelf that is open. I store less used items there.

|Posted: 10/18/2013 6:58:00 PM|I just bought the Ingatorp Extendable Table from Ikea in white. I love it because to extend it you just slide the end of the table out and take out the extension. It stores underneath. I have a glass top for the table and a separate one for the extension that stores underneath too. It's a great size without the extension, but if I need the extra space I have it. I was surprised how sturdy it was and how easy it was to put together.

I also have the Costco project table. I love it!

I just use a 6 foot folding table but honestly prefer to scrap on the floor most of the time always have so I don't feel the need to have a fancy desk!

Are the trestle shelves adjustable?
Thanks for the ideas so far!!!

I have 2, but they're not overly huge. One is the workbox, which has a ton of storage underneath and opens out to a great sized desk, the other is a kitchen island.
I use both for different purposes (I'm a stand up scrapper, so stand to do my layouts, anything with heat embossing etc at the island, the other is used for cutting, laying out stuff, organizing, or a friend who likes to sit and scrap). The island has shelves at the side, a drawer and cupboard.
