Welcome to my studio! Not many major changes since the last year... I had sure hoped to have more of my goals accomplished. But I'm very fortunate to have the wonderful space that I do so I won't complain. I'm gonna swing you around the room & try to provide as much of a panaromic view as I can, then I'll move on to the more detailed close-ups.
The first thing you see when you enter the room is my worktable....all 8 ft of it! And as you can see....I don't leave much workspace left. I love the printer's trays I keep on each end though...they're so easy to dig through to find jewels & trinkets & I can still stack stuff on top as I'm working. Please overlook the junk underneath the table...I utilize every inch of this place for storage. I should probably try to skirt the table somehow.I'm fixing to clean out my junk room & move the computer into there. I love the arrangement of my studio for just me, but it's definitely a one-person studio. I'd like to move the computer desk & printer into another room & move my work table out away from the wall so that both sides could be sat at. That way, I could have crafting days w/ my friends!
This craft armoire is a major workhorse! We once lived in a house and our bedroom had no closets. It was a huge room & I just filled it up w/ old armoires. I converted this one into a craft closet. I'll show you the inside later in the post...but brace yourself, I didn't clean it. ;)
Like I said, every inch of space must be utilized for storage.... so I use my unused frames as a window valance. I hung lace curtains w/ upholstery nails & then hung an asstortment of coat hooks to hang the frames from.
It also has a pair of chairs to go with but the grands use them as stepstools around the house. Doherty's Antiques was an antique store in Fort Worth in the 50's.
