New Studio, very much in progress

by Libby on July 12, 2013

I have made a lot of progress getting my new studio set up, but it still has a ways to go. Less than two weeks ago it looked like this:

Then it looked like this:

And today it looks like this:

I’m sort of at a stopping point right now. I am pretty sure that the major pieces of furniture are where they are going to stay. I have always had a corner for my main work area, but when I started setting up in my new space I discovered I did not have any available corners. Two of the corners are entry/exit points. One corner has a sink (or it will have one when the plumber comes Monday to reattach the sink and its pump). The final corner has a return vent for the HVAC system. It doesn’t matter though because I like looking across at my window.

Everyone who has seen my studio has suggested that I put some sort of plants out there, but I’m thinking I should do something more like Rachel Gourley’s bamboo like tubes or stones, or maybe some kind of playful totem. That’s a project for the future.
So here are a few photos I’ve marked up with some of the changes and additions I’ve got planned.
My main work area and oven wall:

The back wall/metalworking area:

The bookcase and window wall:

The sink wall: (I really don’t know quite how I’m going to arrange this area. It’s hard to get a handle on it while the sink is not in its working position)

And finally the area in front of my work table:

I don’t think I will put the bead storage there. It was just a thought when I was first marking up these photos. I need to get to Ikea and make a decision about which drawer units to get.

It’s going to be a Home Depot and Ikea weekend.  Also, looking at all these photos, one of the most striking things to me is how empty the walls are.  I think I need to get to work fixing that.
