Studio Progress

Last week I wrote about how I am once again reorganizing the studio....well, here are a few pics of my progress. The funny thing (and by funny, I mean CRAZY) is, that I have changed this space around probably 7 or 8 times already!
I really like how it is turning out though. The organization is coming along nicely. I'm working on grouping likes with likes, and minimizing what I actually need to have out on a regular working basis. I'm really liking the brown paper. My desk says clean and inviting now!
Tim keeps walking through and commenting on how much more open it seems. I feel the same way and totally feel on the right track with this layout. After I get settled, then I will finish the walls and then finally...if dreams really do come true....replace the back door with a paned garden door! Im visualizing...I'm visualizing...
This is my relaxation area. It is actually a mission-style bench with an oversize ottoman pushed together, with lots of pillows. The leather ottoman was free from some neighbors who were moving. The bench was a great garage sale find for $40 down on Sanibel Island. I have no idea how we got it packed in the van with all of our vacation stuff and I have no idea how I convinced Tim that this was a good idea. This is what I mean when I say I have a husband who supports my creativity! This area gets great light and is perfect for reading and writing and napping with the dog. Kona gives his lick of approval!
