Well, I finally got my workroom organized! Nothing like posting those ugly before photos (see the post here) to make me get my tail in gear. I should try this tactic more often.
After I got everything cleaned up, organized, and photographed, I realized I had about a bazillion pics to share. So, instead of being that person that pulls out the slide projector and subjects you to a ton of vacation pictures, I'm breaking this up into two posts.
Before we jump into my newly organized workroom, I thought I'd share a little about it. When we moved to the country almost 10 years ago, I decided the shed that was on the property would be a great place for my art studio.
I painted the walls inside, bought a little woodburning stove to heat it during the winter, bought a really l-o-n-g vintage cast iron sink to use for washing paint brushes (and the occasional dirty dog). I bought cute curtains and dreamed of planting an herb garden outside the front door. It was coming right along until...
Yeah, in my own little world, this was somewhat devastating but compared in real life to those that lost much, much more from that flood. It's was just an inconvenience. We ended up burning practically everything that was in the shed. And, quickly decided the shed was not a safe place for my art studio.
So now, I have a little 10 x 10 room that my husband built me in our basement garage. It's actually cozy and now it's organized! Come on in!
|fabric scraps, vintage shopping cart (for the Country Living Fair and other shows), fall floral decor|
|my version of the old woodburing stove (electric heater), old door turned mantel, vintage bistro chairs|
|vintage china cabinet turned storage cabinet and my many, many jars of junk :)|
|an old board covered with batting and cloth is used to hold inspiration pieces and projects|
|my work table made from an old dismantled desk and a hodge pode of other containers for art supplies|
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
