It's almost a new year, though, and that's the perfect excuse for a new beginning. I've spent the last day cleaning and organizing and this is how my studio looks now:
Here's a better look at the main work area. I've arranged the most commonly used tools and supplies to be within easy arm's reach.
The other end of the table is mostly dedicated to storage, but my goal is to keep it clean enough so that another person could conceivably work there (anyone want to come have a tack day with me?). The two lying down resins are both upstairs for repairs. Trooper has a chipped ear and poor Danzante has a broken leg.I'm not done. I still need a better chair and a good desk lamp. I also want to get some pictures on the wall and add some more plastic storage bins. Still, I'm feeling pretty good about the way this is going. I can hardly wait until the boys go back to school so I can spend an entire day in my new and improved studio!
Honestly, I'd rather not have any horses on the work area, but it beats the floor which is where Danzante was yesterday!This is what the shelves looked like yesterday...
And today! I relocated all the shipping boxes and most of the supplies so that I would have more room to display some of my favorite horses. This may not have been the most practical use of the space, but it makes me happy to look up there and see models rather than stuff.Another change that makes me happy involves the top of Maggie's dog crate. This had been one of the most cluttered and disorganized parts of the entire room.Now it's become home to my studio entertainment and research center.
