my updated studio

ok i'm going to share, but remember it's still a work in progress. sorry for the grainy photos. the walls will be behr watermelon pink and the trim will be all white one day. i still need to paint my printer cart, the little red table, and my ikea fira black. i need to buy a curtain and i want to update the ugly particle board bookshelf to a white one. so without further ado, i present my studio.

view from the doorway


my desk - new vika table tops and cabinets


my sewing station - new ikea helmer unti holds sewing supplies and other odds and ends - that's my scraps bin next to it - sorted by color (well i shove stuff in the top and sort when it gets overwhelming)


my scrap table


expedit #1 holds embellishments sorted by color and cardstock up top - you can see my white board with my assignments on it too!


expedit #2 holds all sorts of odds and ends


sterilite storage for october afternoon and american crafts supplies


ugly bookcase holds patterned paper and albums


ribbon storage


button storage


little white cabinet holds american crafts house shapes, paint and ribbon - the photo holder above is from ikea


new fabric covered bulletin board


wood floor with new rug


so that's that. a work in progress but so much better than a couple weeks ago. feel free to ask questions. thanks for looking.

OK, you shocked me Celeste - didn't expect another post so close to the last one - hehehe!

Absolutely love the room - can imagine that watermelon wall - really must be so good to work in.

Wow, it's gorgeous Celeste. I can't believe how organized you are about everything- do you ever relax?! ;) And I guess we share a love of all things Ikea too!

What I want to know is, what are those boxes you've got in Expedit #2? I have a bigger Expedit, and those would be handy!

Mariah said...

I'm also interested in the white storage boxes in Expedit #2! Could you email me at mariahb@gmail.com and let me know where you picked them up? Thanks!

KatieJ said...

How has your scrap table handled the task? I'm looking at getting the same kind of table top and legs for a desk & scrap table, wondering if the legs get wobbly over time or if it's pretty sturdy? Thank you!
(GREAT space by the way!!!)

Hi Celeste, I am sooooo envious, what a great space. Where did you get the ribbon holders?

Vanessa said...
