The truth is I have been avoiding my art room because I was overwhelmed by too much stuff and not enough storage. I scoured Craig’s List and not only found this prefect piece with lots of storage but had the pleasure of meeting Jacqueline


who gifted me with this lovely sheet music and ephemera!


After I lined the drawers and shelves I was ready to store my collections of papers


and fabrics.


The top along with two shelves provided much needed surface space


for odds and ends and altered and hand made books. (I didn’t realize I have seven in progress!)

I still had room for my existing small bakers rack filled with paint, gesso, gel mediums and other supplies. (Which still needs organizing! One step at a time…=)


I was also able to squeeze my old desk in front of the window for more storage for my collection of glitter filled S & P and powder shakers.


I made the three tier stand out of a thrift store silver plate lazy Susan, tray, bowl and candlesticks.


and recycled printers trays for small bits.


Much thanks to my new friend and kindred spirit, Jacqueline, for her generosity and love of all things vintage! xoxo

Now there’s the sewing nook … =0
