Studio Makeover Complete!

The studio is complete!  All my supplies are back in!  Hooray Hooray! 
Here is the main wall with shelving and drawers.
I have my books and supplies grouped in categories.  Face painting supplies are by the face painting books, wool felting supplies by the felting books, beads by the beading books, etc.

Here is my sewing table.....
I have room for my sewing machine, embellisher & serger, plus my regular sewing threads, machine embroidery threads & serger threads.  And lots of drawers.

Here is my cutting table/work island. I have wide shallow drawers on one end of both sides of the table, front and back. On the other end I have vertical storage space for my ott light, paper cutter, light table and large mats.

This is my media wall with cds and dvds.  I'm old school - still using a cd player. :)

Here is my window wall with shelves for magazines and some of my doll collection, plus drawers for miscellaneous things like charms, stencils, foils and such.

Over the closet doors are some favorite quotes.

Inside the closet are drawers with fabrics and trims.

Yours truly with my Art Doll Quarterly profile article! :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new studio!  I can't wait to get back to work!


  1. Love, love, LOVE your new studio! Inspiring!

  2. It is absolutely amazing. You have planned the arrangement very well...enjoy creating in it:)

  3. Thank you both very much! It really is a dream come true!

  4. Janet, it is beautiful! So big and roomy and I love your storage units. Are they custom or did you purchase them like that? I've not seen that type drawer. Really, really nice and so proud for you. You do wonderful pieces. I always enjoy seeing your work and can't wait to see the ones coming out of this new studio!!

  5. Thank you Lynda! The shelves and drawers are Elfa. I bought them in February during their annual sale at the Container Store. My sewing table and cutting table are custom - made by a local cabinet maker.

  6. WOW !!! that is a lot of storage space and so well organized. I know you wil love woking on your beautiful dolls in that great room.

  7. Lovely, Janet.
    I am planning on making some changes next year at my studio and I love a fresh start!! It looks fabulous!
