As I added more things that didn't have a designated space, my computer desk got overwhelmed with
I'm not all done yet, but I thought I'd post some mid-project pictures. Maybe it will motivate you to tackle whatever organizing your studio may need. And I know it will help me follow through to the end of the job.
I'm actually typing this post at my desk, but here's what it looked like near the start of the project.
Another goal I had was to reduce visual clutter, as well as physical clutter. I think I've accomplished both goals here.
I removed the purple boxes and the furnace glass and I spread out the white drawers so they are all the same height. Now the eye can rest on that shelf comfortably and not be jarred by all the conflicting heights, colors and storage boxes. The only non-white item now is a wood and papier-mâché diorama from Mexico that is on top of one of the storage drawers in the corner.
The 2nd shelf down is mostly empty right now, but that's OK. I'm not done cleaning the whole studio yet and I might still need the space. One trick to give yourself extra space for smaller items is to use hanging wire baskets that hook onto the shelf above. You can see that I've used one of these above the second shelf.
I moved all my polymer clay supplies into these boxes and used my trusty label machine to label each box. There is still extra room in the boxes for more, as I expand my stash.
P.S. Happy Valentines Day. AJE loves our readers!
