Studio Redux

To me working smarter starts with organizing and this is especially true when multiple projects will be going on. I did want to spare you the mess that this closet started out as so just imagine a regular ole' closet with a couple of bars and shelf that was also badly in need of a paint job.
Here is the start of my work area redux with the shelving and workspace additions along with a fresh coat of paint. I think the space is 48" wide. I chose a raspberry color as it is a great complement to a bit of color in my chair and also to some paper that I intended to use as my inspiration print.

All creators need storage for their wares and I love collecting little containers and such to store mine. If they are old and worn or lovingly used all the better. Here are some that fit pretty well into this space so far. The little brown boxes on the bottom shelf are cd storage and are perfect on this narrow shelf. They may get a redux too.

The addition of another table creates needed workspace.
The round piece of marble was a tabletop that I had no base for. It now provides a great work surface. I love vintage metal trays and often use these tip trays for my miniatures work.

A favorite vintage chair that was slated for a redux works well for me here. I am happy to have traded a wood table for glass as it makes the space feel larger.

We're not finished yet. I must add some fabric in the form of a curtain to close of the work area when it gets messy guests come to visit. This room may have to provide double duty as a guest room and it has great windows just begging to provide a pretty view. I'll be sure to share the rest of this room as it progresses.
Thanks for visiting!
