When you walk through the double doors of my “Studio” this(above) is the wall to your right. I have altered several Alex drawers from IKEA, stacked them (tutorial on how I did it here ) and still need one more to finish this wall. As you can see I have a slanted ceiling so I do have a little dead space (which drives me crazy!) I don’t know what to do with in the corner. I painted the tall cabinet/shelf as well – hubby found it! It was going in the trash!! I cleaned it up and painted it- good as new! I repainted the wall from orange to gray – yes I know it looks white, I wish I could say it looked gray in real life but no, it came out white. After putting all together though, I am OK with it.
I have counter height shelving purchased from our local hardware store, Hubby installed the cabinets and I did all the painting. I am always reorganizing- it it hardly ever this clean! LOL! Originally I did counter height because I had three toddlers running around – it kept them from getting into my projects! Now they are big and enjoy sitting at these counters while I work, sometimes they are creating their own masterpieces!
I made the blue shelves for my room because I couldn’t find any the right size to fit my mists. The vintage printers tray holds alcohol inks, paint daubers, glitter and tiny embellishments. The cart is from Ikea and has mixed media odds and ends – dry wall tape, tissue paper, more paint, textural pastes etc.
In those cabinets I house 2 oz paint, 12 x12 paper stored vertically and filed by color and manufacturer, stamps, embellishments. I like to store like items together.
The fairy cabinets house resource books, printed pictures, photo printing supplies for my printer. (The inside of the drawers are below) The front cubbies house my DCWV collections. 12×12 stacks with the names written on the side. The smaller bins have cards, 8×8 and 5×7 mat stacks.
A closer look at my cubbies (Ikea expedit), and desk. Cubbies on the wall house things that I use all the time, current manufactures, tools, chipboard, alphas, acrylic, electronic cutting cartridges and dies. The ones closer to my desk hold things I use all the time and are easily in reach – to my left are my mixed media supplies by collection, alphas separated by color, paints, watercolor paper and my art journals.
Some close ups…
Right next to my desk are things I use all the time, all my pens, pencils, scissors, adhesive (a whole tub full!).
The cubbies house all things separated by item- like stamps, alphas, flowers, chipboard, tools for bookbinding, Clear Scraps acrylic…
I house my most current DCWV stacks vertically and write the titles on the spines so I can pull what I need.
The rolling cart from Ikea – mixed media mayhem!
I love my Tonic guillotine cutter! Drawers and this cart (picture before I painted the outside – the inside is the same) house various mixed media – paints, washi tape, inks, beads, etc. (Alex drawers from Ikea )
I redid these cubes with tin! So fun! I put back up products up there & things I don’t use that often but I still need every once in a while.
Gifts from my hubby! I love Disney!
I recovered this frame in burlap and painted it white.
I got this empty frame really cheap on clearance -filled the back with cardboard and covered it with burlap. I put ideas here for future layouts – journaling and photos just waiting to be scrapped!
Drawers from the black and blue cabinets…Misc embellishments.
I painted the fairy on the left and the fairy on the right was a gift from two very sweet young ladies.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Let me know if you have any questions!
