It’s still underway. I had plans to make it to the hardware store Thursday and pick up some brackets to repurpose the side rail of a crib and I got a bit waylaid. The former owner of the crib and I managed to score free admission to the Children's Museum. Hmm, chores vs play?
Yes, we spelled our names in hieroglyphics amongst other things. There was only one “M” so I couldn’t even spell my name (Averleigh’s arm is blocking it in the photo). This is the much larger puzzle needing my attention.....
I’m serious, it is just chaos. I’m fighting physics and making order, but it is slow going. This is my principle work space. This is a panoramic shot from one corner that while in the studio is not really studio space [more on that in a bit].
My next space is in the basement so more dark photography in store.
Here is where I work on making jewelry.
Your eyes are not deceiving you. Tucked back there is my glorious twenty drawer Hamilton cabinet that I stripped and refinished.
A tense moment during the sort through. That white cart on the left started to roll off that way as the bookcase on the right began to fall to the right. I looked like a cartoon animal for a moment as I used every limb to minimize the impact of all sorts of things falling, but I managed.
There really has been progress since this point. I moved all this and moved in a large stainless steel shelving unit that was previously in a closet and held all kinds of crafty things. Of course to empty and move it everything moved into the studio – ah yeah, see photo above.
Sooooo I will be updating this post (probably several times) with some more detail shots of some of the specific areas that have progressed. I’ve managed a lot of storage solutions from just repurposing things already in my home so looking forward to sharing those tips.
I didn’t really intend to tell you all this before getting to the point of this post but – it’s the guilt – it makes me ramble!
March 1st marks the reveal day for Sharyl McMillian-Nelson, of Sharyl’s Jewelry, studio clean up blog hop. I’m not going to lie, it was reassuring to see the list of participants grow and grow. Many thanks to Sharyl for the deadline. While I’ve not met it, I am well on the way and I can’t wait to be inspired by all the transformations I’ll see in this hop.
I hope you will come back in the next few days and see my storage solutions for far too many art supplies, polymer clay, and my unique use of the ubiquitous studio furniture that is the EXPEDIT.
Find all the tidying up participants right Here if the list below has a formatting fit.
