... and After!

As promised, here are some 'After' shots of my re-modelled studio, featuring an extra work surface and more storage.

I do love IKEA!

No excuses now - time to get creative!

Love the labels, Love the papers and LOVE those little jars! Whats in them is it buttons? Would love a rummage around your beautiful studio! x

Thank you for the kind comments - a good clear out has been so theraputic! The little glass jars are from Ikea and are filled with buttons, beads, sequins, pushpins etc. I have many little projects for them in my mind - it's just finding the time to play!

It looks super. Ikea is always good for storage stuff. Looking forward to seeing all you'll create now.

Wow, so organised, I love the labels and all those little jars wish I was as organised!!! Think a trip to Ikea will be needed soon xxx

Happy New Year!
Your studio looks wonderfully organised. I too love IKEA, especially when it comes to storage ideas. I love the little jars in the drawer.
We have enjoyed the snow here, sledging in the fields and building snowmen, great fun!
Have a lovely weekend
Warm wishes

It looks super organised! Do you think you will be able to keep it like that!

Let the world domination begin!

Wow! I am v envious, I open my work cupboards and I get attacked by falling objects! My fabric collection (mostly tiny scraps spills out like the magic porridge pot) I need to follow your example I think. Love the pretty jars - they are too pretty to be hidden away though! x

What a great studio space! The drawers look great for paper. I'm stuggling with a huge portfolio case which takes up most of my studio every time I open it up!
Thanks for letting us take a peep. I saw your link on Twitter.

You are very lucky to have such a lovely work space - only have tiny corner - am very jealous. I look forward to some more dotty creations.

Loving Ikea, loving those drawers, loving those labels you made. I do like organisation in my workspace which is a joke as I look around here at the moment, MUST TIDY UP!

Bliss Knits said...

What a fab workspace! Everything in it's place. My workroom is a tip - too much stuff, too small a room! Very envious of yours - I bet it's very inspirational with all the lovely materials and that garden view. x

Vintage Inspiration said...

That's pretty creative, fantastic.

You have all been so kind with all your lovely comments - just a little re-jigging and re-organising has made all the difference! Still sorting out the pile I didn't show you! But it has made a big difference to the way I work!
