The before

I'm about to embark on a studio revamp. I know you're probably thinking, "Oh but your space looks so very uhmmm, eclectic." but it's OK. You can just blurt out "What a sty". I won't be offended. After all I work in this little disaster zone. How do I ever get anything done? Here's how it works:
  • I work.
  • I make a huge mess.
  • I clean and organize my crap.
  • I work again and try to stay organized.
  • I make an even bigger mess.
My only excuse is that I don't really have places for all the things that need to be placed. And to add to that, I just bought another industrial machine that needs a place to live too.
Here's where my awesome husband Chad comes in. He is a master of organization and streamlining processes. He's also a furniture maker and can take all of my crazy imaginary conglomerations of nooks and crannies for this and that and channel them into real life shelves and carts. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. As we were brainstorming fixes, I found myself gushing to Chad about how amazing he is, how lucky I am to have someone who can actually make these things happen, and on and on. I found out that gushing about him and his fabulous self (rather than myself) put a smile on his face and made him happier to do the project.
So stage one, the planning phase, is complete. I'll keep you posted.

  1. That's about what my studio currently looks like too. I am naturally a very organized person and it just kills me to work in a mess but I have zero time to clean it right now and it's spreading! Soon the rest of my house will be a disaster!

    I can't wait to see it all finished!
