Creativity without the clutter!
Love it! The organization makes crafting even more fun!
I upgraded from the Workbox 3.0 to the Dreambox. WOW!!!! the few issues I had with the Workbox 3.0 were corrected in the Dreambox! I'm thrilled with it and even though the dimensions are the same, I seems to hold more than the Workbox!
I love my dreambox! I've had it about two months now and it has made a big difference in how I craft. I often jump from one project to another, and it was always a pain to have to drag needed supplies back and forth from where I stored them- so much so that sometimes it would stop an idea before it started. Now it's so much easier to jump from a watercolor project to-stamp carving-to beading-to scrapbooking and back again. The counter height table option is also a big plus. I also love that moment now when I realize that I need something for a project, say a button or embossing powder, and I know just where to pull out one of the narrow, little drawers and grab just what I need. Having all of my supplies so organized helps me focus more on creating and less on 'where did I store my crepe paper again?' Setting up the box was a fair amount of work, just getting the boxes into the house wasn't easy, but I'd say overall it was definitely worth it!
I have been drooling over the Workbox and saving my money to get the Workbox and fortunately the Dreambox came on the market just in time! My husband and I were able to put it together. We were very impressed with the details, the well marked parts and the quality, as well as how well everything fit together. I have so many friends who love it and are very jealous! I have everything organized and labeled and am glad to be able to have everything with reach! Best investment I've ever made!
I started visual art in Feb of 2018 and it's almost been a year! I purchased so many art supplies that I was bursting at the seams. So I was excited to receive my DeamBox. I ordered it in December and it arrived at the end of January? Beginning of Feb? I had my friends come and help (I paid them). It took from 7pm-2am to put most of it together. But once we got to step 10, there was no energy left, so we continued the next night. I use my DreamBox as a desk for working on my computer and to do art (of course). I wanted to make it really pretty like all the videos are, but that's not just how I work. I like to see everything. It's a really well thought-out design! And the DreamBox seems to be the next level after all the suggestions of improvements from the Original ScrapBox. There are a few things that I wish were different. I would rather have metal pegs for the shelving with a way to lock the shelves in place, so I don't have to hold the shelf as I pull out my storage bin. A slightly more rigid bin. They are a little bit floppy with art supplies in them. The instructions we received show the table being folded up and the DreamBox has to fold down to close it. We figured it out, but after so much time putting it together, we thought we did something wrong. It was frustrating. Al in all, it's so great to have everything in one place and easily accessibly! I have slowed WAY down on purchasing more art supplies. I think I have plenty for quite awhile!
I was amazed at the entire experience! The packaging was done by a true scrapbooker – everything organized, labeled and complete with directions! The dream box was easily put together in specific steps. The only drawback we experienced were the pre-drilled holes in the back of the main unit. They were a tad smaller than the euro screws. They just needed to be expanded a little. Yet, it was incredible that all the holes matched up perfectly! I love to organize and this checked off all my boxes! I just stand and look at it in awe. Thank you for a very fine quality and well-planned exclusive piece of furniture. One can tell there is a lot of time and talent that has gone into the planning of this unit! Nicely done!

Love my dream box, used wall paper to covered it and different hardware, you can fit a lot of stuff, at first I didn't think I would need the crown and drawer accessory, but let me tell you "it's a nice addition love it".
I’ve been blessed with a dedicated craft room since our second son left for college (over 10 years ago), but now that we have a granddaughter, my craft room is occasionally used as a guest room for her. Many of my craft tools are dangerous, so I knew when she was out of a crib I would have to stash everything away when she visits. I was researching options for safe storage when I came across the Workbox (which was close to what I needed). Because we have carpet in the room, I put off making a decision. Months later my husband asked me if I had given any more thought about buying one of your products, and I went online to do a little more research. I couldn’t believe it…you had added a new product called the DreamBox, and it was exactly what I needed. Then I noticed you were offering free shipping!!! I contacted someone that purchased the DreamBox that had carpet, and she said it wasn’t an issue! Yay! So I placed an order, and my husband and I put it together right after Christmas. I can’t say enough about how great this product is…I love it and have almost filled it with my things. This is by far the best craft related purchase I’ve made, and it will allow me to continue creating for my business, Citi Girl Crafts, or making for gifts for friends and family. Thank you for designing this great product…well done Original Scrapbox Company. You’re the best!!
The build was trying at times. I wish you’d included when to add the 3drawers I added to my order. We decided to put them in with the other shelving before adding the second side. All in all we were impressed with the engineering of the unit and how everything matched up. Well done! Heavy duty piece of furniture.
Way too long to Ship
Bought the cabinet for my wife. Wasn’t too hard to put together. Just needed help a couple of times. Some of the assembly steps are definitely a two person job. I am impressed with the quality of the product.
This was a wonderful purchase. I create cards out of scrapbooking materials and the DreamBox gave me the opportunity to keep all of my materials in one organized space. The DreamBox came with very detailed and organized instructions which made it easier to assemble. When I first had the dream of creating my own craft space, I had anticipated on spending lots of money on cabinetry, a desk area, and enough storage space. The DreamBox is a great investment because all of this is provided in one product, which in the long run is affordable compared to purchasing several different storage items. Keep up the great work and keep the products coming. I am very grateful for your company! Marcy Law
I love the dreambox and would highly recommend it. I am finally organized and can find my supplies easily. My only complaint is the shelves are all cut approx. 1/4 " to narrow instead of a snug fit. Every time I pull something out the shelf falls off plastic support.
The assembly instructions should be more specific and detailed. I had to disassemble and reassemble a few parts several times. Following the pictures and guessing the distance was what made me finish it. It took us three days to complete it.
A lot easier to put together than I thought it would be. Good eng. job!
I have not had time to put the dream box together yet so I am unable to answer some of your questions. I am excited about my purchase and look forward to when I will be able to complete this project. When I complete the project I will happily send you a photo of my new work space. I may need to hire someone to put it together for me, but for now it sits in my garage in its crate. Thank you.
Took longer than expected to build. What I am not happy about is whenever you pull out a tray the whole shelf come out.
Still in the process of setting it, but I’m loving that I can finally see what I actually have.
My husband and I were very impressed with the quality of the materials for the Dreambox and how carefully they are packaged into bundles. Yes, there are a lot of parts and yes there are a lot of assembly instructions, but each bundle comes with its own instructions of how to build just that section so you don't get overwhelmed. The two of us tried to get through 2 bundles each night after work and really enjoyed the time we spent building it together. We only got confused a couple of times, but a call to customer service quickly set us straight on both occasions. Jenny was able to explain over the phone how to correctly put the parts together and pointed us in the direction of a video demo just in case we had any problems. Our Dreambox is all together now and we love it!
I love my DreamBox. It arrived very well packaged in a large crate. I would suggest you have a partner to help build it and allow a few days to complete the process. We had minor small items missing (shelf pegs and a few pegs to hold the rods for the ribbons.) As soon as we contacted the customer service, parts were quickly sent. Their attention to details were great from service , to instructions , to answers to emails. I was very pleasantly surprised at the support. I am currently housing, my sewing machine, cricut, various mats, sewing and craft supplies in my DreamBox. I can imagine so many different ways to use this product . It would be very nice to use in an office as well. And I love all the cartons for shelves and dividers were included...so much space and in a well organized system.
To be honest the dream box they alway demonstrated was the cute one with the white beautiful doors. The doors I got basically make it look like a Refrigerator or a coffin so not what I was expecting. Secondly my scrapabe box came with no screws to put it together so there is that. No dividers for the containers that need them. So yeah not a super happy customer.
Love almost everything. One suggestion would be that the caster wheels would have locks on them, especially the on the main part of the unit. It keeps on creeping from side to side when you open the doors, so I just leave them open.
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Love! Love! Love! I had to wait patiently while it’s at my garage through the holidays but is soon as we got a free-snowed in weekend we started assembling! My husband helped for about a half an hour and then I was on my own! Directions were easy to follow and very impressed with the hardware and quality!! There was a bit of a defect with the crown, a couple shelves, and the table mechanism which were handled promptly -a new parts shipped out right away! so very impressed with that!! My only regret is that to save money I got the cheapest door fronts— had I realized what quality the rest of it is I wished I would’ve paid a little extra for a little bit more detailed door front(: it seem like such a huge investment but now that it’s put together my stuff is organized it’s worth every penny!!!
DREAMBOX Wonderful, what a pleasure to have the room to put all my stuff in one place!!! Love, Love, Love it!!! So happy!
SCRAP HEAVEN Love my dreambox. Am so organized. Am able to craft and not have to move around so much getting what i need. I will probably never close it up. Lol
CRAFTY HEAVEN! I LOVE my new DreanBox! It’s the best purchase I’ve made in quite some time. Not only are all of my supplies organized, but my entire teeny tiny apartment has become more enjoyable because there isn’t clutter all over the place now. I can comfortably relax when I’m not working on a project. And when I am working on a project, finding the supplies or tools I need is as simple as pulling out the appropriate tote. Clean up is also a breeze which is fantastic! No more digging through random stash spots around my house to get supplies out of hiding. I’m also using a wider range of supplies that I already own because of this. And possibly the best part, I have plenty of room for new supplies and new projects!!!! I can finally start to get into things like sewing and quilting which I’ve just never had the space to do in the past.
Love my DreamBox! I absolutely love my new dream box. I’m a creative memories consultant and it has helped me so much to get organized for my big scrapbooking weekend. With everything being organized is taking me a lot less time to get all my supplies ready and to make lots of embellishments. Can’t wait to the weekends over so I can actually sit and play in my new space!
DreamBox Dreams really do come true! I received my DreamBox well before expected and I can’t wait to finish assembling it and stock with all of my treasures. I had a couple of defective pieces which have been shipped and as soon as they arrive we’ll finish assembly. Jonna was extremely helpful, kind and quick to respond to my concerns.
Heavenly storage for Bible journaling! Love my DreamBox!! It looks gorgeous next to my WorkBox, and will work Heavenly as my Bible Journaling center! <3
A DREAM COME TRUE! Truly Amazing!! I was able to declutter my workspace and organize all the extras and the things I use the least. Every time I look at it, it really feels like A Dream Come True!! I came across it by seeing the Workbox on Instagram and I wanted it. I figured I would wait till Black Friday and then I would buy it. However, that was when the Dreambox was revealed and I was so very happy I waited! I love the option of being able to stand! I also don’t like Velcro so I was happy it was removed on this unit. I couldn’t be happier!! Well worth the wait!! Also one of my Top Favorite Purchases!!
DREAM BOX I love it. The only thing I would have liked better is for the table to be slightly rounded at the corners. I am constantly moving around mine and it would be better.
My wife loves her new DreamBox My first challenge was to find a way to make the surface hard for it to sit on and look good at the same time. I found a portable dance floor on Amazon, which I thought would work, but not sure it would stay together. We are very pleased with how well it worked out. The instructions said 4-8 hours assembly required. So naturally with my exceptional handyman skills, I got it put together in about 12-14 hours. With hundreds of parts or more, it came out well and was ONLY missing one thing, the legs for the fold out table. My wife is very pleased. We are very impressed with how well everything went together, and quality is very good. There are only a couple of things I would like to have liked to have seen. It would have been nice to have two of the little doohickeys for putting in the shelf holders, but they go in with fingers too, however, mine are still sore today and I only put in half of them. Afterall, it does recommend two people put it together. The hardware would have been nicer in bronze or black for our selection of wood. Latch for the front would be nice to hold the doors closed when closed completely (probably caused by the dance floor). Lastly, a COMPREHENSIVE set of instructions right on top of everything to tell you where to start. The only instructions were in each package containing components for each section. Now we can use the closet as a closet and make the room look less cluttered tables, bookshelves, and boxes to store everything. My wife LOVES it.
Loove One word. Obsessed!
Truly A Getaway So my DreamBox is up and running and I simply cannot get enough. I just want to be in it alllllll the tiiiiimmmme. I'm worried if I keep using it so much my family will start to feel neglected. The amount of storage is amazing!...as is the flexibility of it all! I sit around all day thinking of ways to organize it or make the layout better. Assembly was not too bad - my partner put it together with a little help from me in about 2 hours a day for 3-4 days. I am truly in love with this thing and look forward to opening it everyday! Whoever came up with this design - BRAVO!
Building wasn’t so bad I was a little concerned when i read that it would that 2 people and 5+ hours to build. But everything went together nicely. We took our time and had no problems. I love the space and mobility of my dream box. Dont tell the price discourage you. It is well worth the money. Excellent quality materials and excellent instructions including letting you know that a friend was not included. Which i found funny.
Love it!! I used my DreamBox to store all of my cake decorating stuff!! It is so fabulous having everything in one place and to able to decorate cakes right there on the adjustable table!! Love, love, love it!!
I love it!! I received my cabinet yesterday, and my husband and I have already put it together. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, nothing was broken or missing, and it went together very easily. It is definitely worth the money! Now I just need to fill it up!

prompt deliver, easy to build it Got the Dream box faster than expected. Truck driver left it in our driveway. There was a lot to haul inside the house. We built it in a few hours and installed the shelves to complete it the next day. Not bad at all. When we read the other reviews, we were a little nervous, but no problem.
Dream Come True This is a scrapbooker's dream come true if space is an issue! I can't think of anything I would need that wouldn't fit inside! I only wish I could take it with me when going to crops haha! Love having everything all in one place within arm's reach!
Well Designed! I have had kids moving in and out of my house over the past two years and no set place to craft. All of my supplies were spread throughout the house so it was hard to find anything. Now I have everything in one place which is amazing. The desk is easy to use and I two different heights. Sometimes it is easier to do a project standing up. But I love to use it to paint or sew sitting down. I absolutely love that it has wheels. So I keep it in the corner and when I want to use it I slide it out and open it up. I love the light too. It's great for when I am crafting or sewing at night. Having the dream box has really helped me be more efficient and it's been awesome! Thank you for all of the thought and time that your designers did to make this the most amazing way to store and use creative supplies!!
Beautiful! Fully recommend it 100%! The directions for set up were so well written and very thorough. The quality is amazing, so nice and sturdy. And oh so beautiful!
Amazingly painless to get done. A few issues with some damaged shelves that the company fixed super quick. Worth the money. Well done folks.
My unit lives up to its name, Dream Box. It is so awesome to finally have all of my “stuff” in one place, organized and easy to find. I am LOVING it!!!!
This Dreambox is AMAZING!! I absolutely love it!! It is well built, well thought out, & I would even say fun.
Realy love my organized space
Love this product. Arrived perfectly and was fairly easy to build, but does take some time. I have it in my home office and can close it up to save space. Great addition to the room!
Love my DreamBox. Makes crafting fun and organized.
Love my Dreambox and would recommended it to everyone for any hobby or business! It’s Amazing!
Nicely made, and it came with most of the shelf organizers. It exceeded my expectations.
I love the dream box. Love all of the bins. Had a hard time trying to figure out how to organize them but I was able to do it.
I loved the dream box. The clear plastic boxes will keep me organized and stop me from buying things that I already have. The quality is excellent but the assembly is a bit much. I still have not completed assembly. It took five hours for a hired professional carpenter to get as far as he did and I had to help. I also had to pay him. It was my dream to own one of these pieces and I do not regret my purchase.
I've waited YEARS to be able to purchase a Workbox and ended up getting the Dreambox, which I absolutely LOVE!
Delivery took too long no followup. I had to contact scrap box myself. Once I did, my box was on my sidewalk within the week. Better yet, once I got my box the legs for the table were missing. I was informed of this prior to delivery, however, I had to contact customer service again to inquire about these legs. Delivery was pretty quick once I contacted scrap box. Also, I was missing pegs that hold up 2 large shelves and had to contact scrap box again. The box is nice. Definitely not worth the price. I wish there were magnetic closures for the box when it's completely closed. If this is added later that's too bad for those who have already purchased the box.
It would be helpful for non-efficient builders like myself, to have a video on line showing construction. There were times that the instruction manual was not clear. It resulted in errors that cost time and frustration. To be able to review on video, and see clearly details that are not possible on the manual, would be a tremendous help to people in the future. I even went on line to see if youtube had something - I came up empty. Thank you for your consideration.
The Dreambox is the best, I just love it!!!!
I was excited when the Dreambox came out, although I was disappointed that the traditional door design was ditched for the bland and charmless "Shaker" design. I ordered it anyway, with crown (it's really a must). It came all in one giant wood "coffin." This may save on shipping, but they deliver this massive (and massively HEAVY) thing to your curb and you have to pry it open and begin ferrying it all into the house, no small task. Realistically it should arrive in three to five separate boxes that a normal person or a couple can readily get into the house. If it arrives in the rain or snow, too bad. You still have to get the coffin open and try to pull these big pieces out. They are packaged together in numbered groups. Each group has somewhat sketchy instructions taped six ways from Sunday to it; most of ours ended up torn because of the excess tape. One of my biggest complaints is that there is no overview of the instructions, and NOTHING labeled "#1." In a very slow computer "chat" with a customer service person who went away for an hour at a time I was finally told that there is no #1 (!) and that the unlabeled box of hardware is thought of as #1. It would have been nice to have been told that up front. Fortunately, my husband forged on and started putting it together. Also fortunate: he has lots of power drivers and such. It would be very difficult to securely put it together with a regular screwdriver by hand. I don't think I could have done all those screws by hand, and I work with tools all the time. The sketches are very poor and the verbiage leaves a lot to be desired. My suggestion to the Scrapbox people is to arrive with the coffin at some prearranged person's house and be there as they go through the entire process, from struggling to get it all inside to the placement of the last bin, not to help but to take notes and seriously improve the instructions. Pay attention to the things that they have trouble with. Printing off a few extra pages of more detailed instructions would not be a big cost, but it would greatly help the construction experience. The whole process would have been so much easier and less frustrating if all your directions were spelled out more plainly. For instance, a critical component, the cams, MUST be seated with the arrow in the direction of the hole. We didn't notice that teeny arrow until the first side kept coming apart on us. That should be spelled out in capital, bold letters at the top of page one. Each of your products should come with a video going through its construction step by step. At least post it on your website or YouTube. There was nothing whatsoever on the construction of the Dreambox online as of two weeks before Christmas. When you pay $3K for a STORAGE CABINET YOU HAVE TO CONSTRUCT, you should expect much better customer support! I have to mention, at my husband's urging, that this cabinet isn't made of real wood. He was very disappointed about that. The hardware is very nice; the wheels are heavy-duty, as are the hinges. Nothing was missing from our kit, I am happy to note. It does not hold several things I assumed it would, like my guillotine-style paper cutter, my lightbox, or another couple of larger papercrafting items. Even by removing shelves and bins, they still won't fit. It came with a lot (16, I think) of big plastic jars. What are those for?? I would much rather have had extra holders and rods for ribbon, which I don't believe are sold separately. The picture of the filled Dreambox shows a roll of paper towels on one rod. That would be nice - if you could shut the door with it in place, which you cannot. Maybe as time goes on I will pull out more shelves to make room for some other large items. Maybe, as I use it, I will begin to rearrange things and find uses for all those teeny-tiny cubbies, although I'd rather have had larger big slots and no cubbies, at least on one side. The light cord for the crown, by the way, just hangs down over the top of the crown. The switch is in the cord and is behind the door if it's open - very unhandy. Seems like it could be run down inside with an integrated switch. By the way, a nice strip surge protector with outlets adhered inside with velcro would have been quite a welcome addition. Overall, my impression is that the company just wants to sell these, more than any real desire to get a really good tool into the hands of the millions of crafters out there, and I get that. But if I spend this kind of money, I think It's well within my rights to expect a few more bells and whistles and a lot better construction experience. As I'm sure Scrapbox is aware, a smaller copycat version of the Scrapbox has appeared on the Internet for an unbelievably small fraction of the cost of the original. Doubtless THEIR reconstructed wood isn't as dense or their hardware as heavy-duty. However, I can literally buy, use for a few years, and discard more than a dozen of the copycats for the price of one Dreambox. People MUST get exemplary value for this kind of money and I personally think you need to step up your game if you don't lower your price. Just my opinion - and I WANT to help you and WANT you to succeed. The Scrapbox concept is a great one, and I want American companies to do well. If you choose not to publish this, I understand.
LOVE LOVE LOVE My friends and I put it together and it really wasn't as hard as I heard it was. The only problem we had was with the little plastic pegs for shelving. They would break or bend when popping the shelves into place. Maybe we were doing something wrong but we followed the directions But I LOVE THE DREAM BOX! !!!
Dream Box Crown Damage Although we just finished assembly of the Dream Box, my wife is so excited to transfer all her crafting, sewing and photo album scrap box materials in one central versatile location, she has not had enough time to put it to productive use yet. Our customer service experience with a damaged Crown was a breath of fresh air as I sent a photo and they immediately contacted me for a replacement. This company is setting an example for others to follow for outstanding service.
