This should have been posted in a more timely manner and we are almost to summer!
My coworker came up to me the other day and said to "Get painting! You haven't posted since March!" Where does the time go?

This has been a crazy 6 months with all the disruptions in my house. Just when I was thinking everything was done I decided to put new flooring in my studio space, which then led to some
custom built storage and of course painting all the walls. But it is done and I'm moved back in
and getting things in place. It was worth all the disruptions and having everything moved into other parts of the house.

Here are a few pics of the space. My favorite part is all that storage. I'm still working on new lighting
but that will have to wait awhile.

'Library' area - next up a nice comfy chair

Storage, Storage Storage

as you can see there are a few new things on the easels

Hey Deb! I LOVE your tall storage solution. I need to do something like that. Did you just decide what size "cubbies" you would use most and build it that way? Enjoy your new space!

Denise - all the shelves are adjustable so I can change according to my needs.The width between the uprights are 12" and 18".

Denise Rose said...

Cool! How deep are they? I have a great wall in my studio where these would work.
