My art studio had gotten out of hand...way past the messy creative stereotype. I stalked some of my artist friends social media accounts for inspiration and came up with a solution that combined simple organization and storage. Please don't judge me, but let me show you the before picture.
I spent several hours throwing away junk, old brushes and trash. I then went down to my garage and built shelving to go all around the wall. I used inexpensive furring strips nailing and gluing a 1x3 to 1x4's. Once built, I used my handy dandy stud finder and my son and I screwed the shelves to the wall. Here is that progress....
My last task was paint organization. I had put color famines in rolling storage boxes, but still couldn't find what I was looking for a lot of the time. I also assumed I was out of colors that I may have three of with this system. So I attached a pegpoard to the wall. Some paint had holes already, but I used office binder clips for the ones that didn't to attach to the pegs in the same color order as the paint producers.
Last, I sat up my easel again with muted light from a newly installed window shade. I even secured a surge protector for my I pad and lights.
So what do you think? I know I love the organization!
