Do you remember a few weeks ago when I posted a few pictures of my creative space and entitled the post 'Cyclone Alert'? Let's go back to those photos and look at the before and after. This is a photo of the same corner but now the chest of drawers has been moved to the back wall and an armoire has been brought in to house a lot of things behind closed doors. This piece of furniture solved a lot of my problems and all I need to do is open the doors and sit down beside of it and most things will be within easy reach.
The table still has a lot on it because these are the things I use constantly. The SU! ink pad caddy revolves so I can easily find what I need. The other inks are sitting on a lazy susan so that they are easy to get to also. You can see that I no longer need to keep the doors of the bookcase open because my stamps have a new home. This now houses embellishments, paper and finished projects. Just look at the fireplace mantle! I no longer need to use it for storage. I use it to showcase finished work.
Now I don't feel so tense when I walk into this space because my supplies now have a home without flooding my table. Stay tuned if you want a closer peek. I am working on a video tour that should post in a few weeks. Are you wondering how I can work in a room that has been painted this dark red? I'll discuss how I work around that issue since this is a temporary creative space.
