As some of you already know, I have been making art pieces for shops and individuals. I was working mostly in my kitchen. On my kitchen counter, and table. I decided that I needed a better work area. I was in search of a rustic table for my office/studio. I didn't have to look too long. On Saturday morning my daughter Amanda and I went to some garage sales. We came upon this old, rather large drafting table. I thought it looked like the perfect work surface for my space. It is old and rustic, so I can spill paint, glue, glitter, etc. and it won't even matter.
The lady at the sale had it marked for $50. I got it for $40, Yay!! We had to call my husband to come and pick it up, as it would not fit in Amanda's car. He came right over and got it for me. Thanks honey!!I spent yesterday setting up my space. I had to get rid of a small easy chair I had in the corner of my room. I wasn't really even using it. It sort of was my catch all for stuff. I put it on Craigslist for free, and within 15 minutes it was gone.
I started using my new table today, as you can see. It is working out perfectly. At the end of the day, I don't need to clean up the mess in the kitchen.
I hung my dream sign that I got from Wren's Cottage across my work area, along with a map of Paris.
My ribbon is multiplying daily.
Another little view. I also got this cute canvas storage bin at Target. It is holding all of my misc. papers. I am still working on some Halloween orders, but soon I think it will turn into Christmas Central!!
Have a wonderful week!
