A little over a year ago I switched the office and guest bedroom around due to space. While the guest room is used sporadically, I’m in the office all the time and the art supplies were taking over the small room. The extra square footage has been nice, but I’ve since found the walls caving in on me. (Look quickly while I hide my head in shame.)
When the room was a guest room there were some small decorative shelves on the wall. I started storing often-used supplies on them and decided I wanted shelves, lots of shelves. A friend of mine built some for me this summer and installed them last weekend.
All my free time over the last week or so has been spent moving supplies from drawers and cupboard to my shelves. Just looking at them makes me happy.
Now that the most used supplies are readily available, some of the drawers and cupboards are free. My next step is to remove the less used materials into those drawers and cupboards and get rid of the rolling plastic carts. The best part about the shelves is clearing off the work table and having some room to work.
If you’ll notice in the messy pictures above I couldn’t even find the table before.
