Picture perfect day today. A little warmer too. I spent some time this afternoon organizing my supplies. Started with one small task, and turned into a big to do. You know how that goes. But I have meant to do it for a while. Can check it off the list.
Dotty had asked about my new work space. I love looking at artists work spaces. One of my favorite Pinterest searches. I get kind of nosy too. I want to see what is in the cubbies and drawers. For that reason, I am including way too many photos.
My old work space was in the corner of my bedroom I had shelves on my right, filled with supplies. The black drawers sat on the corner of my desk. Now they are on top of the shelves, so that frees up desk area. I am hoping to move them eventually, and place my scanner where they are. For now, it sits under my desk.
I had to move my desk to make room for the art cart. It had been to the left of the desk, out of reach. Now I can pull it out and have tools close at hand. Moving the desk meant first moving the computer. And THAT meant I had to reorganize the cords. See what I mean.
The ever popular Ikea cart, and Ikea boxes and baskets helped to organize even more. Wood boxes for pens and paper. Soft woven baskets for alcohol inks and small paint tubes.
Below that is craft paint, colors now clearly visible or labeled. This is what started it all. But hey, I made room for a few more bottles. LOL. On the bottom is cling wrap, crayons, pastels, large bottles.
The “studio” is still in my bedroom. Now it is along one wall, instead of in a corner. I do have more storage in the closet. The shelves meant for shoes and purses are filled with supplies instead. Heart of an artist.
The monitor is on a stand, which allows me to tuck my most used paint and pencils underneath. The keyboard and mouse also fit when not in use. You can see that the pencil holder Mark made, sits just about even with the bottom of the window. Perfect!
Still more to do. I will have an inspiration board on the left, the black drawers will move there as well. They are going to get a fresh coat of paint. Stay tuned.
Hope you enjoyed the five cent tour Dotty! Happy creating everyone!
