Studio Organization

I was given this bar about 15 years ago when my parents moved. It's been in my studio ever since, storing my art supplies.

My friend, Wanda, shared a photo last week of her newly cleaned and organized studio. I was envious of her beautiful environment in which to start the new year. Wanda’s photo gave me the push I needed, and I’ve spent the past three days working on cleaning and organizing my home studio along with the associated storage closets in the hall, garage and guest bedroom.

Here the bar is open so you can see how much can be stored in such a small place. I have inks, pastes, brushes, pens and all sorts of supplies. It has a marble top that opens to rest on the doors. And it's on wheels too. I think it is a must for every artist's studio.

This morning, I arose to a completely cleared off drafting table. Ah, bliss! I have been happily working for hours. My projects are all in nice clear plastic boxes, all with labels on them. I love clear plastic boxes for storage. Being able to see inside the boxes is important for me, even when they’re labeled.

Although I have many ways and places to store my supplies, today I’m sharing my favorite, the bar my parents gave me when they moved about 15 years ago. It didn’t fit their new home. I immediately put it in my art studio, and although I have moved twice since, it has always had a prime location in my home studio.

What’s your favorite way to organize your studio or your art supplies?

Enjoy, Candy
