Sarah at "Thrifty Chick Decor" is hosting a "Declutter & Organize" party filled with great ideas from fellow crafters and the like for storage and organizing ideas :-) I have been busy redoing my studio from THIS cluttered unorganized mess....
to this streamlined everything out in the open (mess?) I know, I've got a lot of art supplies/stuff and some plain ol' junk-- and its not 100% organized but I've had a terrible flu to deal with so bear with me! What to do when you NEED all your supplies? lol
I put in floor to ceiling shelves and purchased clear bins to house various objects. The bins will be labeled eventually once I've streamlined the contents a little more~ The bins hold contents like glitter, glue, beads, trims, vintage items, paint, feathers, sewing supplies-- you name it, I've got it and its in a bin!
I've even got hat boxes on top my t.v. unit in the studio filled to the brim with vintage finds...(labels to come soon)
This vintage bookcase sits on top of my work table for added storage. I love the look of it filled with the white boxes. On the bottom shelf there is a mini drying rack (that pink thing...) that holds tiny pieces while they dry~ neat huh. I think it once was for holding mail? I had to cut the top of it off so it would fit on that shelf-- and of course, I had to paint it pink! lol
Here is a bookcase filled with antique books, some dating from the 1800's all waiting for me to get my hands on them! Its nice not to have them mixed in with my art & craft books finally!
Here is a view from the doorway leading into my studio....
I've got a dress form standing guard at the door....
around her neck she has long necklaces that rattle when anyone passes by her.
I've got loads of things under my work desk--- which will be put into plastic bins soooooooooooon I hope~
The studio closet....I know, Do I really need all this stuff? Yep-- I do. I did toss out a lot of things, which I will probably have to rebuy lol...but its a "work in progress" and with Sarah's ever constant great tips for keeping organized and making things "Cauute", I am inspired to continue!!
