New stamp storage

Good morning,

I braved the crowds at Ikea on Sunday and remembered to pick up some Ribba shelving whilst I was there. DH put the first two up for me yesterday.

These are narrow frames with a lip at the front, designed to stand framed pictures on, but I think they are just perfect for wooden stamps. Now I can see at a glance what I have and hopefully this will give me inspiration.

There's still one shelf left to put up which is twice as long as these two, but I need to clear some space before it goes up.

Enjoy your day!

Hugs, Clare xx

Great stamp storage. Great inspiration seeing all your stamps on display. Last time I got my husband to put an Ikea rail on the wall in my craft room he fused the lights!! Happy New Year.
