So, sit back, relax and I hope you like today's tour! Remember this photo? The entrance to my new studio! Welcome! As the doors are opened, we are going to the left, and immediately there is a closet. This obviously is a before pic. So we went from this... To this! The closet doors are removed, and the first built in is revealed! Can you believe it? The shelves go all the way to the ceiling inside the closet (9 foot ceilings allows lots of shelving!) Five drawers, work surface, and slat wall. All shelves are adjustable! On the left inside of the built in, I have adhered removable 3M hooks to hang my Spellbinder Nestabilities. I actually got this idea when Julie Koerber stated in her studio description that she hung up her dies. That was a light bulb moment for me! But I didn't want permanent hangers, so the removable hooks are perfect! I placed two plastic paper holders on the back slat wall for my white and cream card stock, two colors I use the most. These clear containers can be easily moved as well. I took the plunge and purchased two ClipIts. This is the smallest one, located on the right side of the counter, the larger will be revealed tomorrow! I am using my items more when they are in front of me...how does one ever remember what they have! So this was a great purchase and aids in reminding me what I have!
Here is the bottom section of the closet built in. 5 drawers! Top drawer houses scraps of cardstock and patterned paper. Drawer two holds my Big Shot plates, tape, chipboard shims,etc. Drawer three contains my Xyron machine, cartridges, Melting pot, and bind it all. Bottom two drawers have frames, empty clear containers waiting to be altered! The bottom shelves have magazine holders (found at Target). This station is where I do most of the paper cutting and scoring of cardstock, making the placement of the cutter, ScorPal, and ScorIt right at my fingertips! I'm still deciding if I want to label the drawers...there again, I think it would be helpful to remember whats hiding inside!
