My Arty Space

I've just finished sorting thru my zillion beads and had a huge bag of beads to donate afterwards. 1/2 way thru the last task of sorting thru ribbons and fabric and then my nice clean clear desk is in for some serious arty play!. Okies here are some pictures of the area I have now. There is my desk.I have draws under it and to the side. The side draws are on rollers so if I want to work on metal I just roll it to the other side and if I want to do paper crafts roll them the other way. The one under the desk has my acrylic paints and painting mediums. Still two empty draws here and I thew out four draws. I have a daylight lamp at each end as the lighting is crap in the room.

To the left is stackable containers with draws containing embellishments, vintage images and paper crafts stuff.I decreased my stash here by 6 containers. There are three draws still empty.

To the right are books, magazines and cabinets for metal work, soldering, ice resin stuff, etching stuff, Opals embossing enamels, Cuttlebug and accessories, glues, tapes, paints and mediums. On top of the book shelf  that I have cut off ggrrr is my pyramid of life piece, my rusty clock and some gorgeous art work that my friend Robin in USA gave me.

There is a large cupboard to the right too for stamps.Ill slowly swap them from folders to loop and tape and then put them in DVD cases for easier storage. My beads and metal embellishments are in here too and my stamp making machine, solvents, fabric inks, sewing machine etc.

Here are some of the doors open on the cupboards below the book shelf.

I'll get Grant to permanently attach my dremel to the desk and have two cork boards still to hang but I'm pretty happy with it all. There is a single bed in the room too which I shall change to a sofa bed lounge later in the year.
