Hello, and yes, my worktable is what I’ve been working on these past few days. I have painted it with Annie Sloan Aubusson paint. I love the colour, the chairs are painted with Country Grey which is a lovely taupe colour. I have also given the floor a coat of paint and done a lot of clearing and sorting out, so a good spring clean all round. I do think it takes time to know how to organise a space like this, it’s taken me nearly 2 years.
I have taken a ‘pretty’ photo of my table before the chipboard top goes on and my tatty old cloth ready for some glaze work soon. This one is for my Etsy ‘About’ page.
While it’s nice and tidy, (it won’t look like this for long) I will give you a tour.
I have a mezzanine storage area where I keep all my boxes and bubble wrap as well as stuff I don’t use very often, it can be a bit hairy going up the ladder, or should I say coming down the ladder. Sometimes I think I will just have to sit there until someone notices I’m missing LOL. I had a display cabinet here but I got rid of it, so there is space for the hooks to hang my cardi, and aprons. The plasterboard is for clay work, bags and bin have clay in them.
I painted the cupboard and shelving units in the kiln room, I’ve packed away my lampwork stuff and brought in my glass fusing equipment, the space is compact but it’s workable. I still have some metal working tools and my enamelling stuff but I don’t think they will be used much, but I’m hanging on to them for a while yet. I haven’t painted the work bench, it’s for messy jobs, as you can see.
And this is what came out of the kiln this morning, more about that in my next post. I’m really excited about my new mixed media work but I need to get something finished to show you soon. The trouble is it’s slow work, waiting to have a kiln full of ceramics to fire.
I still have a couple of pieces of furniture to paint but now I’m off to Stamping Ground to see what you are all up to. Sorry this has been such a long post , I am making up for missing last week 🙂
