hubby has put my wall units up, feel my craftroom is coming together now

I am so chuffed, hubby has put my 2 wall units up on the wall above my craft desk, donated by a friend who was getting a new bedroom. we can't find the screws to attach the doors, but I think I quite like the open plan look, so I can see everything easily, here are some pics - above my new craft area, everything close to hand.
 the left hand unit is for stamping. I decided to display all my rubber stamps on the bottom shelf, so I can access them and use them, not stamped for ages.
The top shelf is for my acrylic stamps, acrylic blocks, inks, embossing powders and heat gun.

This is the lefthand side of the right hand unit.
On the bottom shelf my multi-sectioned boxes containing brads, gems and large glittered letters.
 On the top shelf are boxes containing my adhesives, donated nesties and die-cuts & my ribbons.
On the right hand side of that unit, on the bottom shelf is a 3 drawer unit holding my small adhesive gems, scissors and pens and embossing tools. also some chipboard letters, my cropodile and a box of colour coded paper and card scraps and my 6" x 6" paper pads.
On the top shelf is a floral box containing the larger donated nesties, next to a 2 drawer unit containing my rub-ons and 3D stickers.

Below the units on my desk are : 
my Ikea storage jars, containing my large gems, buttons and bows colour coded into reds/blues & lilacs/black and white/gold and green.

Now my most treasured stash storage, a beautiful wooden box bought by my sister for my last birthday, in which I store my collection of fabric flowers

I've not even begun to bring in the majority of my paper and card colections yet, think as they are heavy they will need to go on my bookshelf.

thanks for sharing in my excitement at my new, developing craftroom, I feel like its finally coming together. Friends have said do start to craft right away, but I want it all at hand and out of my granddaughters bedroom, then I can start being creative in this space.
