New Studio - Part One

The long awaited new studio is finally complete! I've been planning it for ages, and Martin built me the desk a couple of weeks ago, and I've been pulling everything together since then - but it's done! The rest of the house is a shambles - but my studio is done! The thing that really makes the studio great is the desk. Martin worked really hard on it, and I love it. It's 8 feet long (!), dwarfing my previous work surface which is now the cutting table you see in the middle of the room. The new desk has got big shelves for baskets and books but best of all...
Do you see that curtain? It's hiding... Lots of flat paper storage! I am so happy to finally have a place to store my flat papers. I couldn't afford to buy new flat files, or find any used ones, so Martin rigged this up for me and I think it's great. I've covered it with a curtain because I didn't want to paint every single shelf - I know, pretty lazy - but there are a lot of shelves! There's lots more to show you in my new space, but right now, I need to kick back with a cup of tea and relax. I'll show the rest tomorrow...

This is perfect!
I have posted some pictures of my horrible studio. (but I know this will change, I just can't find the time)

Your studio looks great - I would love to have one like that. Great idea for your paper storage too. I keep mine in a plactic folder under my desk - not ideal and I keep knocking it over with my feet!! I love your paper lanterns and the whole feel of the room being so light and bright. You have inspired me to have a bit of a declutter. :)

I love it + who cares if the rest of your house is in shambles- you have this wonderful sanctuary! Did you leave room for the day when you get a letterpress?
