Welcome, Stairway up to studio, turn right.
Stairway up to studio.
Stairway going up to the studio.
Top of the stairway, studio to the right.
Here are the photos I promised they are not in order but I'll try to give a description as I go thru them. This is the entrance to my estimated
5 77 sq foot studio, the bank still owns it but we are making headway on the payments. It is a prefab over our driveway. As you come in to the right at book shelves for books and supplies. Look south there is my sewing area and my hanging chimes collection.
When you turn to the left there is a small toilet room and on farther to the left is a large sink area. Here you can see my painting table and more book selves with books and art supplies.
This facing North(behind those bamboo curtains are 2 large picture windows. You can see the painting table again here.
As you go to the right from the painting table is the East wall, hanging paintings are hiding 2 narrow sliding windows. This is my painting/drawing table. Behind the bookshelves facing south is my storage area.
Continuing south past the bookshelves is the storage area, here you can see my cutting board table, behind it is my light table. To the left are plastic storage bins, drawers, & baskets.
Turning to the right as you go into the storage area(can't see now) are all my large canvases, finished large paintings, matte boards, foam core boards, etc. Here you see the metal shelves that I have origami & washi paper and craft supplies(tape, beads, etc). The easel in the back has a window covered in canvas cloth to lighten the brightness of the southern light that comes in.
Now you can see the canvases, boards, etc.
This is the same wall East coming in but now I am facing North from the south side of the storage area.
Going out of the Southwest side of the storage area enters to the sewing area, here are some storage areas only for sewing supplies.
This is my sewing table and in the background you can see my shelves with material divided into cubbies according to color. The far West left side is the sliding doors with windows 1/2 way at the top behind another bamboo curtain. It leads to the flat outdoor roof of our house by way of a couple of steps down.
This is now facing North back to the entrance to the studio.
Turning back to the South you can see the hanging chimes collection over the sewing area. I have 2 long poles full, I need to buy another pole or 2 if I want to add more. I just love hanging chimes!
The storage area is hidden behind these 2 bookshelves of mostly books, magazines and some tools. Baskets on top hold Christmas supplies, photo albums, art props and etc.
This is the West side sliding door with windows 1/2 up from the top. Stereo and exercise dvds, cds & etc.
Facing the entrance to studio, stairway in the back to the left, toilet room behind the sunflower curtained area. To the left you will recognize the portrait of Pattie Wall (close up in prior post).
Back to the beginning, the door is now hiding the toilet room and you can see the sink area.
Here is the sink area behind the open door.
Hope you enjoyed the visit and saw a bit of the organizing I did. Thank you for stopping by, boy do I feel exposed, but better exposed this way than how it was 2 weeks ago=total chaos, :)
