Stampin' Loft Redo - my "Lightbox"

I've been sharing photos of my stampin' loft with you over the past month or so.. I'm glad you are enjoying the ideas for storing and organizing your stampin' and crafting stuff, I mean SUPPLIES! : ) 

The last part I have to share with you is my new "lightbox".

Once I was done with my "redo"... I looked at one of the shelves and said..."HMMMMMMMM I am thinking this would be a GREAT place to take photos of my projects..."... it was at eye level (no more stooping over), it was near an electrical outlet for the lights, and right there in MY SPACE!!  In the past I've taken photos in the living room on the floor, in front of the window, on the couch, in the stairwell under the skylight.. you name it I've tried it.. . I even tried pix in our huge bathtub since it's white and has great natural lighting... so I was READY for a "lightbox". 

Lightbox on shelf 1

It is just a piece of white paper from a roll of paper taped to the wall in back and then brought forward and tucked under the front of the bottom shelf, with a 12x12 white piece of cardboard (from the Stampin' Up! Designer Paper packages) on each side!!  The lights are from a home improvement store and have "daylight" bulbs in them. They clamp to the shelf above.

Lightbox shelf 2

It works for me and the total cost was under $20, and I am really pleased with it :)

I'm Happy to report that I have kept my floor cleaned up ever since starting this "redo" several months ago... and it feels so good!

Patty, I love your "lightbox" and I think it's something I can set up in my craft room - I just have to find some shelf space! TFS and I hope you are enjoying the cruise!

LOVE this idea Patty! Will have to try to recreate it in my space (I did the bathroom thing too at one time!) What is the wattage for each bulb?
