Every year or so I have a studio tidy-up which implies cleaning, tidying and moving furniture around. It is still used as my working room and guest room and throughout the years, I had a sofa bed, a futon, nothing at all (we set up a mattress when we had guests) and back to a sofa bed again, this time a smaller one. The room is very small indeed and I have to fit everything in there: hand painted furniture, shelves, storage boxes and my tools and materials, not to mention that I want it to look pretty too. Here are, once again, the tidying up photos.
The mess before the big tidy up.
Moving furniture around and trying out different arrangements.
Filling up the shelves and making the most of the space.
At the other end - finding space for empty boxes that I need for packing.
Old writing desk and storage painted by yours truly.
With the added sofa bed for guests featuring lace edging made by my grandmother and cushion with one of my designs.
