Creativity without the clutter!
Since I saw the DB online I really wanted one. And since I got it, I can't talk about it enough. Yes, it's expensive (so many complaints) but I have had quotes to get cupboards installed and never got less than £2000 quoted. And that for doors and shelfs! DB is cheaper than that, plus it has 80(!!!) drawers, it folds up tidy (for UK small space) and is gorgeous to look at! My craft room was jam-packed full of boxes with stuff in yet, I ended up buying more stuff because I could never find the things I have -or worse- remember what I already had. I have rediscovered so many things which inspired me to craft the things I originally wanted but forgot about! Being a visual-thinker, I can't begin to explain the joy of opening your DB and just to have everything on display, organised and at arms length. I love the option to be able to stand or sit to work. So easy to adjust. In order to keep all 80 totes in use, I only installed the "standing" slots for side tables, and I actually like having the side tables higher, makes it easier to dive under tables if I need something. The crown light if fabulous! No more shadows while working. I initially were nervous about delivery, but the company let me choose the date (even the time!) and since I had no garage, the box was left on the road. We just opened it and carried everything inside. Took no longer than half an hour with only 2 of us. It took me ruffly 10 hours to build, with help from other-half. It helped to read instructions a few times. It look daunting, but if you just follow all the steps it's straight forward. We only managed to get in trouble once and realised we skipped a step. The only negative I can muster, is that it's very heavy. So if you have back problems, make sure you have help and opt for the "I'll make the tea" job... If you don't have one yet, I thinking of getting one, just do it! You'll never look back!
I am so impressed with the quality of my new dreambox !!! The instructions to assemble are clear and I did it all by myself amd it went great ! It is everything I expected and I would suggest to Everyone Also Jenny was amazing to answer all of ny questions and took care of me from purchase to delivery and after !!! She is amazing !!!

I am a cross stitcher and I bought this in the hopes it could be a one stop shop for ALL my cross stitch supplies. And it has been perfect for that. However, I found the installation a bit of a nightmare. There was no "main instruction sheet" at least advising you to start with Bundle #1. I started with a different bundle because it was at the top of the pile and it referenced another piece from a different bundle that had to be built first. The pages are not numbered in a way that you can figure out which bundle you are looking at (ie: they just have the page number on the bottom, but not referencing which bundle, so if you mix up a few Page 4s, you aren't sure which bundle it came from). Ideally I would have liked ALL the instructions in one book, stapled together, available outside of the bundles. That would have helped to keep me more organized. Another issue I had was one of my instruction sheets was printed incorrectly, whoever I was communicating with sent me the proper one and just told me to follow it backward - however I still believe that there is actually something wrong with my table piece. I've also emailed customer service about this, as the table 1 piece does not stay in the "up" position - it always drops down. I was told that there was something wrong with my hinges, but I've been sent two separate sets in addition to the one that came with it, and they also do not do the job. I feel like my table 1 hinges are on the wrong sides of the piece of wood and they are not reversible due to the way they are cut. Anyway, outside that, I'm so happy with my purchase and the quick response time from customer service. I would recommend this to my friends, but with the warning that it can be quite difficult and confusing to construct due to the instructions.
It’s compact and holds tons of stuff!! I can close it up and it’s clean in my space again. Love it. The service I received when I had questions was exceptional. I would highly recommend the dream box! It’s a dream!
I love the DreamBox! I was actually worried that I wouldn't fit everything into it, and it turns out I have more space than I need. So I will take advantage of how customizable it is, and rearrange stuff to use all the space available. I'm somewhat handy, and was able to put it together myself, with some minimal lifting help from my husband. It took a long time (about 10 hours), but was worth every minute. I was missing a few small parts, and the service team sent them to me right away. Great experience all around. I smile every time I walk into my craft room and see it! Expensive, but worth it.
Instructions could be a bit clearer, lots of parts , and I love it made it my own :)
Well I found my dreambox in a town 168 km south me and I had wait another week before delivery. I decided to drive down and pick up myself. I just could not wait. So the next day my husband and I got up early and started the building it, its was kind daunting. Now that we had it put together. I have started loading it up. Wow do I have alot of stuff. My husband told me it was the happiest he has seem me in awhile. ( Boy I love that guy) The only small complaint I have is the sharp corners on the table, they are quit sharp. My husband is going to put some sort corner bumpers on corners. I know my mom is kind jealous, my friend loves my scrapbox too. This was best investment I have every made. Its worth every penny. I do see myself hours playing in my new room.
My wife loves her dream box. It took about 4 hours to put together with me and a friend. The instructions were straightforward and while there were a lot of steps, it was easy to follow and assemble. Everyone we know is envious.
So happy to have this. So well made and attractive. Everyone who sees it is jaw dropping....
Way too long to Ship
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!
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.
Wish I could afford it too expensive close to $4,000 with bad ons
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.
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!
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 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!

I just ordered my Scrapbox so, now I have wait to get, which is going to drive me crazy until it get here. So more review will come later
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.
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".
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’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!!
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.
I am seriously considering buying the new Dreambox in Grey, with the overhead light. I read Cynthia's review, and everything she wrote makes sense. The Co responded. Please tell us what changes you have made, especially re: the plug and ability to add a power cord to the interior. Also, I hope the wheels are lockable now. I am single and my house is raised so if the box still comes in a coffin, the directions unhelpful, and no online video to review, I am inclined to find the copycat. Dreambox, please post your improvements so future buyers feel confident paying over $3,000 for this unique item.
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.
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.
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!
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! !!!
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!
