I’ve procrastinated long enough about the garden studio, and this really wet and windy weather made me think twice about wanting to go into the garden to work. So I decided it was time for a workroom tidy up and reorganisation to see if the room can function as a studio.
So here it is, but before the tidy I had family members stuff like amplifiers, and a bed to work around, as well as a lot of plastic storage boxes in the middle of the floor.
This is my painting area and workbench, under the north facing window. I’ve discovered this is a great place for taking photo’s too.
I’ve introduced this old drop leaf table to use as a packaging and photography area. I intend keeping this table clear of ‘stuff’.
Talking of packaging, the 3 humongous rolls of bubble wrap and packing boxes have made it into the guest room as I haven’t found a storage solution for them, maybe a slot cut in the ceiling could work like a toilet roll dispenser, only joking!
This is my storage solution for efficiently working in different media, everything ( almost) I need is in it’s own box, so all I need to do is bring out the right box, of course it’s always the one on the bottom , but it’s exercise!
So what’s left to do? I have to find a better tool storage system for my bench, I’ve bought some cup hooks for hanging files and some clips for the Fordom and Dremel, and I think some peg board at the back would be useful. If you have any ideas I’d love to hear them.
Next job is to tackle the kiln / torching room aka the utility room!
