I am so excited! I have just spent the weekend planning and constructing a wall organiser for my little art studio.
My garage “studio” consists of a working area of 1.5m wide x 1m deep (plus chair space). Up until now I have had to share my table with blank canvases, paints, easel and other miscellaneous “things”.
I am the type of person who cannot work in a cluttered space; it irks me to the point of distraction.
As I am about to kick off my next spurt of Canvassing My Friends work (yes, I promise, I will be starting again VERY soon), I wanted to have the working area cleared up. As I couldn’t spread OUT, I knew I had to go UP.
I had a look at local hardware stores and storage stores, but there was nothing suitable for my requirements. My next option (and by far the most cost effective), was to build something myself…which I did…and it turned out EXACTLY as I wanted it, with all the equipment now in its rightful and accessible place.
To finish off the organiser I wrote a whole swag of inspiring and motivational quotes on the wall…just to keep reminding me of the “whys” while I take care of the “hows”.
Onwards and upwards!
