My art space ~ now completed!
This is only one section of the dairy studio. I claimed this part for myself so that I could have a space dedicated to my artwork. (I'm a novice artist!!) I was determined that this creative space would be big enough for me to spread out while also organized so that I did not have to compete with my arch nemesis: Clutter!!!
We were given some offcuts of kitchen counter tops but you can also buy leftovers, usually at a discount, from decoration stores or builder's supply stores. The shelf with the two tins of stamps and the bottles of inks (some out, some inside of wee boxes) was made from plywood and painted. The containers are a variety of things I found around the house, from popcicle tray to Tupperware cup, and hung either with fencing wire, screws, or long strips of sturdy velcro. I also added velcro to the bottom of each of the other containers to keep them steady.
Now when I work on an art project I will have everything at hand ~ but better yet, a place for everything and everything in its place!
(I'm going to sew a wee curtain to block that light so it's not blasting into my eyeballs.)
Sorry, the image below is a bit blurry ~ I wanted to show the wee lip at the edge of the equally wee shelf that keeps the inks and stamp tins from falling off:
My eyes!!! lol
