week 24 of 52 weeks: organization. this last week i spent a ton of time on the organization of my studio, which is actually, well, just my dining room. i know i am not alone in this. i wonder how many other artists resort to using their dining rooms out of sheer desperation. i bet there are quite a few. well, my supplies have seriously grown since i began my business. i was using this plant shelf before to organize my supplies, but it soon became overflowing. so this last week, my mom and i refinished an old tv hutch. the before was rather boring and uninspiring… but the after is a gorgeous piece of furniture. i love giving new life to a piece of furniture. it makes me happy.
most of my art supplies fit away nicely in my beautiful new piece. the best part is that i can close the doors to my studio and not look at it anymore. i am so happy with the results. i am still working on a few more details so i am not going to share just yet. plus i am kind of playing around with the idea of submitting before and after pictures to a design blog. but here are a few pictures of some spaces that have been inspiring me.
