This room wasn't planned, it evolved over time. I know I'm lucky to have it, and I'm thankful. But truth be told it's not set up well for what I do. I want to rearrange it.
When we first moved into this house I wasn't selling artwork. I was selling small antiques on Ebay. So we set up the bookshelves and plunked our old dining room table in this space when we moved in. But then I decided I wanted to sell something that was "repeatable" rather than dragging home tables of mostly junk for one nice item. It made sense to make that myself. That's how Northdixie Designs got started.
It's time to re-evaluate the use of space in this room. Sometimes magazines have useful information I want to keep. I especially like to keep Early American Life and Art and Antiques and those studios magazines. But it doesn't make any sense to use my sewing and painting areas to store magazines in prime creativity real estate. I will think about how I want to use the space and do a to scale floor plan.
Time to pull out the studio magazines for ideas, hmmmmm?
