My daughter moved out this past month and that freed up a room to make all my own. No more did I need to take up space in my bedroom. (I had about a third of it.) You can see pictures of my old spot here.
Having a whole room, I knew that I was going to be spreading out. After cleaning the carpets, I moved everything from the old space to the new room. My hubby said it looked like my studio exploded in the new space. Maybe I was over eager as I did have to move stuff more than if I had set it outside the room.
We moved the shelves on railing from the old space - leaving some rails and a shelf in the bedroom for the tv accessories. TV may be mounted to the wall but still have extras connected to it.
Over last week, I got everything in place and I started sorting some things that were in multiple places. It was truly tons of fun for me as I felt so inspired by my move.
One thing I was inspired to create was the sign for the room. (Shown above)
I started adding new labels to boxes and drawers.
Then my daughter comes over.... She said she had found some shelves. She found out a business was closing and was selling everything including the fixtures. So I got two new shelf units. Used, but still good. That meant I had to do more arranging.
Finally here it is - my new studio room....
The black shelf was one of the shelves I got from the store that was closing. The only bad thing was only one shelf is adjustable, but for the price I will live with that.
All the boxes at the bottom - got new labels and is where my future projects are stored. Above that is some other projects in process and also various things (especially rabbits) that I like. Top shelf is where I have various containers that may one day be a project container.
Next to the black shelf is two cardboard chest of drawers. These all got new labels as well.
Beneath the window is a box for storing scrapbooking things - but because of the new shelves it is empty - whoo-oo! I added a throw for the kitties to lay on. Which they do.
So there you have it, my new studio location.
