I came home from work last Thursday all jazzed to rearrange and reorganize my art room. Obviously my subconscious had been working at it for a while because I'd been needing more table top and storage space but didn't have any idea on how to make that happen. Now, since I'm an interior designer you'd think I could space plan a little better - but it's often harder when you're your own client, right?
Anyway, I was finally struck with inspiration - I came home and pulled out the trusty tape measure then started to work. I emptied out the whole room (so I could clean while I was at it!) except for the bank of shelves along one wall that's just too heavy. Here's the 'before' which you might have seen from previous WOYWW entries.
Table in front of window (much better), papers to my right and overflow supplies on my left in the bookcase. I've got frames, canvases and tablets leaning against the wall - there's about 3' behind the bookcase.
To the left, or behind me if I'm facing my work table, is the wall of gorilla shelves.....
So, all this reorganization has definitely inspired and refocused me and it's SUCH a pleasure to walk into the room and get busy. I'm still fine tuning where things work best and sometimes can't remember where I tucked something, but that's minor. The hard part is over; let the fun begin!
