The whole darn work table!


Well, I didn't think it could be done but I found 'another' arrangement for the Coop and Saucer Playroom.  I had gotten a used Big Shot Pro and it fits better on the old office cupboard with a large piece of melamine on top to allow the tray to move and the handle to keep out of harms way.  It is heavy.  I am able to access all three sides of the large craft table now.  And I am going to do my darnedest to keep it clear of  'stuff'!


Mixed Media is all along the south wall.   I need to buy better/longer shelves but I don't want them too deep.  I'm learning to keep things within reach.  The far corner will be for stamping as I padded that top and I'll spread the stamps in those long drawers.  My old sit down sewing cabinet is at the fourth side, in front of the window.  It is a bit lower than the worktable but that is good as it  holds and corrals all the rulers and papers I use and they don't overflow all over. 


My sewing area is greatly reduced.  Hopefully it won't be too hard to re figure for the few large quilts I need to finish up.  I also lost my ironing station but I do have a new ironing board I can set up in the hallway.  The pegboard will hold sewing accessories as soon as I get time to get them up.  I need to organize some drawers but I think this will work okay.  I also have white feather ticking which was wide and really cheap so I'll make those design walls a bit bigger and smoother!  ;)


Creativity 101 went well today with the new set up!


And...

I couldn't resist letting you know what my dear grand daughter thinks of it all!    Her papa was getting his Canadian citizenship last week and she grew weary in waiting!  lol

When we first moved into this house I had hubby build a big worktable like that for me in my craftroom. As I changed directions in what I was doing, I thought it took up too much room...so we took it out. Of course, NOW, I wish I had it back. It is perfect when you have "the girls" over....gives everyone some space. WE are going to expect GREAT things from you since you are so organized!!!! Looks good.

You amaze me with your ability to find and fine tune spaces in your studio. Specific zones for each task is a great idea. The girls look happy with Creativity 101. Little is growing and I can see waiting is not her idea of fun. Portable projects needed for times like these. Great Job Elle Dear...
