Art Studio ReArrange; Ahhh, Room To Breathe!
Are You a Furniture Hog, like me ?!
Yep, I’m a sucker for Turn of the Last Century, Golden Oak. It’s in a sales slump say the antique dealers. Seems that the millinneals are looking for Mid Century decor. Yeah, the kind of stuff that I grew up with ; ).
Well, thats great by me and means that those of us looking for a little older history, can find it at really great prices.
Being a Mixed Media Artist, I’m always looking for storage and ways to be organized. While I’m so tempted to buy “easy to put together” shelving, my heart just won’t let me, and I fall for vintage drawers, every time.
I also have at tendency to do something and live with it. Like moving a not so useful piece of furniture into my studio (because it’s beautiful and it seduced me;) and not thinking about how I don’t really need it in there and how it takes up so much space.
Love is blind ; )
So, my brain imagined me not inching my way around my space one day, and decided to move the bulgingly large (but beautiful;) Vintage Spool Case that was living next to the window, and replace it with a folding table that I already had in the garage (which I use for art workshops).
I made the trade and the feeling that I had immediately was…ahhhh…Room To Breathe!!! and extra and much more useful…(no extra charge) space!
And because I’m an eternal Form Over Function (that’s what got me into trouble in the first place) girl, I couldn’t just plug in a plastic table, I had to drape it in some unused fabric I had. Yes, of course I went back and added some 4ML plastic over the top (like the older neighbor would do with their lamps and sofa’s, that the millennials are buying 🙂
So, while I’d love to have this beautiful Case next to me while I’m working, I now have this breath of fresh air tabletop, that I am committed to (trying to) keep clean. I have two other tables that I can glue on, paint on etc.,but this one, I plan to use to compose on and not risk staining/splashing, what I’m working on!
How about you? Are you like me and stay in the same old groove?
Well, Im challenging you to try to look at things today, with a new eye and see if you can’t improve your world.
You KNOW it will feel great.
