Slow and Steady Wins the Studio Makeover

This tray is so handy to drop all my stray baubles into, and easy to transport to the table for a project.  I love using vintage!

Well, it’s far from finished, but it is coming along.  I have to remind myself that “slow and steady wins the race” or in this case the studio space.  My tactic is to spend a little time organizing and sorting every day that I work in my studio, a task that unfortunately does not come naturally to me.  So far, so good, and I might actually get through it all this year!  Pockets of eye pleasing organized storage are beginning to appear.  I bought a gallon of turquoise paint and if a container is not adequately appealing on its own, then it gets a coat of paint!  Amazing how much that helps things look clean!  Today, I put the last coat of paint on the floor of my “inspiration nook” area.  Can’t wait to settle in for some inspiration!

As I sort and reorganize, I’ve been looking at everything with new eyes… Is this really an asset?  Does it serve me, either aesthetically, or practically? Am I really going to get around to this project? Or, how can this be stored in a more eye pleasing way?  I’ve been really evaluating HOW I work, and it helps me figure out what needs to go where.  I’ve also had so much fun scrounging around for nifty ways to store.  Bringing out the old suitcases, wire baskets, giving old tins a coat of spray paint, I am actually having FUN with this project!
