As the snow continues to accumulate outside, I am inside working on my studio. There is a lot to do and some of it involves moving large furniture. Time to call in some reinforcements!
Here is the space that I am working with. (Please forgive the awful pictures I took with my phone.)
To the left in this photo is a large cabinet which needs to be moved out of the room and downstairs to the rec room. That is going to be a huge job. This is a piece that my mother in-law refinished. It is a beautiful piece, but it takes up too much precious space in the studio. It is going to swap places with my sewing table (I hope!).
The plastic drawers will hold yarn/projects. I have several more that I can add if my yarn stash requires it. The low brown cabinet will be moved into our office to store office supplies. That will be an easy move.
The cedar chest is going to stay and be used for storage. It was my grandmothers and I am very happy to have it. It will also make a nice place for my cats to hang out and watch the neighbors out the window. I am also thinking that it will be a good place to set up my lightbox for photos.
Lastly, here is the built-in closet. I already have some of my craft supplies stored here. I will have to share it as we use it for some household storage as well. You can also see Agnes in this photo. The dress form mannequin arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to use her for photos. My plying wheel is shown here as well.
I have spent a good portion of this morning clearing out things that no longer belong in this room. I am at a stand still now as the larger furniture pieces need to move out before I can bring much more in and start arranging. It’s going to be a slow process, but I am very excited about it! Stay tuned for progress photos!
