A View of the Workroom--or how to use your antiques in your studio!
It has been a while since I updated the blog! I will share all the quilts I have been making this year in a later post. First I want to share some photos of how I changed up my workroom. We basically removed the full sofa sleeper and a few smaller furniture pieces in the studio and moved several vintage sewing machines into it. I did streamline (ie get rid of) two big bags of rubber stamps and a bunch of knitting items to the
thrift shop. I also donated a bag of non quilt fabrics--again! I tend to
have to do that every few months as they creep in with the garage sale
finds. Rearranging the suitcases trunks, tins and bins to accommodate fabrics and quilting supplies as well as all my existing paper crafting supplies was a juggling act worthy of this blog post.
To the photos! Explanations of how I used my existing vintage items for storage are given below each photo. Enjoy!
The white cabinet and adjacent shelving have all my Copics and Tim Holtz colorants and scrapbooking accents. I use vintage tins to hold lots of these items.
Vintage pieces can add a charm that nothing else will. As you saw, old crocks, baskets, boxes, tins and bottles all play a role in keeping things corralled at my house. And I consider old suitcases to be treasures! Look around your house and garage for cool items you can re-purpose in the studio too!
