I've been scrapping in 12x12 format now for 14 years. I have quite a few albums around the house not to mention mini albums galore! Where to put the albums? I decided about three years ago, that I was tired of the albums weighing down a shelf in my craft room. It was time for the albums to go somewhere else!
So I thought about what I could do to incorporate the albums into our living space. I started by finding old magazine stands at some flea markets that would hold some 12x12 albums and some iron stands meant to hold large pieces of art work. I use them to sprinkle albums throughout the house. I thought I would share some photos of where my albums live inside the home. I enjoy seeing these albums just out and about the house!
This is my current album that sits inside my craftroom on an iron stand. I need to find some more of these stands that are deep enough to hold an album. They are hard to find for the price I am willing to pay. :)
I keep this red album in the foyer just sitting on a chair. It is hard to keep coats off it during winter and hard keeping cat hair off during summer. :)
I love these old wood magazine racks. They hold the albums so well! I just sit them around in the living room. I like to find family pulling them out to flip through. :)
I have these albums just propped on a chair in the corner of the dinning area. I can change out the albums whenever I want. I like to buy different types of albums so I have a variety of style and color.
These are just some places I have moved albums to around the house. I still have a shelf in the living room and master bedroom that hold the extras.
Happy Album Day! ~Tisha
