I purchased my first Dreambox Storage in April of 2021. I was so excited when the delivery hub called to set up my delivery. I did tons of research prior so I didn't have a lot of questions when it arrived.
I got the Dreambox storage because I needed a more organized space. After looking at the craft store and online I decided that there was nothing that would ever compare to having a new Dreambox.

I can't even tell you the first time that I saw the Dreambox back then it was called the Workbox and it was made by the original Scrapbox but I knew I had to own my own Dreambox.

So I went ahead and placed the order and added it to my crafting space.
How Big Is The DreamBox Craft Storage Unit?
When it is open, and the table is out the DreamBox Storage Measures 9 feet wide and 4.08 feet deep. But close is where the magic happens. Closed this Craft organization closet measures only 3 feet 1 inch wide and 2 feet 10 inches deep.
Looking at the DreamBox closed you would never imagine that it has this much space. But on the inside, there is tons of space.
Because of the size of the DreamBox Storage Cabinet, it is shipped freight. My first DreamBox was inside of a wooden box, I was so happy when this 1 came in cardboard. It was much easier to dispose of. But this is possibly due to the fact that this time I got the pre-built service.
How Is The DreamBox Delivered?
The DreamBox is delivered by a freight company, for what is usually curbside delivery, which is supposed to be the end of the driveway. But you can ask the driver if they can bring it closer to the house. They are not however required to.
Mine brought it all the way in the garage! You can see him bringing it in here.
CreateRoom ships your DreamBox to the freight company and then the company contacts you for them to deliver.
When I did the DIY service with my first 1, to make the DreamBox assembly a little more pinless I opened the crate in the garage
My delivery driver stuck around to make sure that it wasn't damaged because of the damage to the cardboard. But it was fine, the contents were packed amazingly.
My freight driver also grabbed a forklift and brought it into my garage. He was amazing.
My DreamBox Storage came in 3 pieces so there was not much assembly at all this time. And I will say it again! It was well worth the upgrade.
How Long Does It Take To Assemble A DreamBox?
This is totally going to depend on what you choose. Because I got the pre-built service so it came in 3 pieces, even the table! All I had do was add the side doors to the central storage space, add the adjustable shelving, and put in my totes and jars for accessories.
It was a very easy process that took me an hour or 2.
When I did the DIY DreamBox I think I did it over 2 days. And part of day 2 was because I had misread the instructions and had put a part together. It's not exactly hard but it does take some time, maybe 8-10 hours.
Can the DreamBox Be Used In A Smaller Workspace?
The DreamBox storage is great if you have a dedicated craft room or a small area in the dining room. The way it is built makes it amazing for any space.
The Storage Cabinet open measures 9 feet wide and sits out 4.08 feet from the wall. So it will even fit into the average walk-in closet which is 7x10 feet.

And the fact that it has built in table space and closes fully means no more messy dining table!
How Hard Is It To Assemble The DreamBox?
I do recommend the pre-built service (that is what I did this time around. It was totally worth the extra cost. I did the DIY assembly the first time and although it is not hard, it took too much time and lots of patience.
Because I got the prebuilt service, my DreamBox came in 3 pieces. Everything else was already assembled. Even the wheels were already on!
When I did the DIY, it seemed like there were a million pieces that I had to put on and put together. Pre-built was definitely less frustrating.
