Virtual Studio Tours!

Who doesn’t love to peek into the creative workspace of others?! Studios editor (and contributor to my book) Cate Pratos is hosting a Virtual Studio Tour the 15th-17th. So join in the fun and see some amazing creative spaces.

I was excited to have my studio space included in the Summer 2010 issue along with an article on ‘Making Time for Studio Time’

When I revamped my space, I re-purposed furniture from other parts of the house. I pulled my collection of antique depression ware out of hiding and used it to hold my treasures.

The only thing I bought was a gallon of paint and this comfy green chair. I added a curtain rod and clip rings to the entire length of the wall to hang things from. It works well with the short walls.

Ooops, make this the second thing I bought! I love this organizational shelf that sits right beside my worktable.

Here’s a link for that awesome shelf, http://www.dickblick.com/products/best-art-organizers/

I’ve had this shelf for quite awhile, scavenged from a scrapbook store that went out of business.

 

This pic is a tad dark but it gives you a better idea of my studio space. I create in the bonus room over our garage. I really love the cozy feel the sloped ceiling gives the space, while still having height so I don’t feel cramped.

When I walk down these three steps I shut out the world and I’m able to focus on living Art at the Speed of Life!
