before and almost after cubbies

Salvation Army:$3 handmade cubbies....lightbulb! Help for my chaotic studio!

I decided to paint them red. Love red, but can get scared of it's intensity... in some ways it remains a neutral to all the other colors I, blue, orange. My hope... it will tie things together and break me out of the green rut. The afternoon sun made it look on fire!

My studio is exploding with so many simultaneous projects that I'm feeling a bit crowded and overwhelmed. I will take a "before" picture, but am too embarrassed to share it until the "after"can be taken to be posted along side it. Here are the cubbies temporarily in place...already lending a hand.

  3. If you can see beyond the stuff at thrift stores you can get some amazing unique pieces. Great find and way to give it new life. I especially love anything to do with organizing.

  4. I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog! From the invitation to create, to the corners of your life, to the ingenious displays...I'm inspired.
