After a serious de-cluttering and cleaning session, my studio is beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Thought I’d show you around a bit. Function is the name of the game here.
My dad was an artist-wannabe. But alas, an engineer he was and the only evidence of this desire is this lovely paint-by-number painting which is dear to my heart and sits atop the new storage case. Someday I’ll frame it.
the Juki – a.k.a. the monster
This is as clutter free as the worktable gets – neat stacks. My worktable is made from a HEAVY wooden door. The Plyler fellas built the base which includes a large bottom shelf. I’ve tacked a kingsize sheet around the outer perimeter to hide the ugly.
Stacks of leather and baskets of my homemade patterns. There is no way to make this shelf look nice.
I’ve tried. It doesn’t work.
My clip holder (a great way to use the kids art)
possibly a backpack? still haven’t decided
a future leather bag – one of two I have slated
playing with leather patchwork
under the table – scrap basket and another basket of recycled structural pieces
That’s it! A work in progress – always.
