My tiny studio received another wonderful feature thanks to Kim of Everything Etsy! So I figured it was a great time to share some updated photos of my space, after all, I’d just spent the last day cleaning it. So take a good look around, it won’t look like this tomorrow! Since my last set of photos, found on Flickr HERE, you’ll see I’m quite a bit more about organizing than decorating, though I still have plenty of eye-candy to keep my buzz going. You can click on any of the photos to enlarge enough to spy little cobwebs.
I removed all the storage under my work table so that I can actually sit at it without cramming my legs into card cabinet drawers. The shelf above now holds a couple of my vintage toy trucks,and Kewpie is still around, but is currently the boy-in-the-bubble.I also moved my small-compartment mail slot piece out into the garage in a new area I’m still working on and hope to share soon. I replaced it with a shelf unit to hold my new obsession with cigar box storage. I moved my bin storage on top of that.My main desk area hasn’t changed much, but I could sure use a new office chair, the up-down mechanism is shot.I scored another tool trug for next-to-nuthin’ and pertied it up with red spray paint, some decals and vintage cigar labels. I now have 3 cool vintage rubber stamp racks to hold my assortment of stamps and a cute tiny empty 4-drawer cabinet begging to be used.The little green stool in the corner (below) is one I bought just for my husband for when he comes in for a visit so he has something to sit on, but for now, it holds my ice cream bucket waste can. I brought in my library of Dover books and various other art resource books from the bookshelves in my living room and keep some under my desktop printer, and some in my upside-down yellow cupboard. Oh, yeah, those are my Gocco printing sets from the early 90s. I moved my blue library cabinet, up onto my big chippy storage unit and covered it with more compartmental storage. (Uh huh, more cigar boxes.) I’m lovin’ the awesome wooden alphabet wall art I received with my new Eames font from House Industries!I’ve still got that faux deer head fetish. I sprayed this one with Sterling Silver spray paint for a dynamic effect.This one likely came off an old cuckoo clock and holds my tiny tourist mobile. I painted it blue and added magnets to the back of it and it stays nicely in place on my metal door. This head, next to my door, was a sweet gift from my friend, Wendy. She found it at a garage sale and painted it white just for me. What a great friend! It now dawns a wreath of buttons I made some time ago. Thanks for visiting my favorite place on earth, I hope to get some more shots of the rest of the garage space up soon!
