Artist: You Better Reorganize!

Artist: You Better Reorganize!

I’ve been busy reorganizing my office, trying to make it more conducive for filling orders. My husband and I put in a new closet system, so now I have better storage for my canvases and other art supplies. We also put in a dresser to hold my printer and Cricut Maker. And lastly, we put in a cubby with cloth bins to hold more art supplies and shipping materials.

This is how I first set up the space years ago, after we had moved in

When we bought our home, the room was baby pink. We all called it “The Pink Room” for a long time, even after I repainted it. Lol! To make it my own, I painted it in my favorite color.

I didn’t have furniture to fit the small space, so I temporarily set up a folding table. It certainly wasn’t pretty, but it got the job done.

An upgraded desk, a roll around, and some drawers helped with some of my storage issues

I wound up getting a desk from a friend of a friend for cheap and it fit the space so much better and it looked nice too! I also added roll around carts from Michael’s and some drawers.

Eventually, the room became an overflow for storing things, though. And so I moved into our dining room to create my art. There was much better light there anyway.

After a year of not being able to use my office, I’d gotten pretty frustrated with the situation, so we went to Ikea to get an idea of what we could do with the small space. There we found the cubby and I was able to figure out a dresser and a closet system would also help. Those had to be ordered and I had to wait over a month for delivery!

It’s getting there!

It took me awhile, but I’ve got the room mostly sorted out now. The dresser has plenty of storage for my printer and Cricut supplies, so I’m really happy with that!

The closet system is larger than I expected. I even measured it three times before purchasing and thought it would be a good fit. But once we started installing it, we saw the space on the sides are almost unusable, which is disappointing. Now, I have to figure out where to store my sewing machine and other things I’d planned on putting back in the closet. Other than that, I’m pleased with how the room has turned out. I have a place for almost everything now, so it’s way better than what I had before! Despite the closet situation!

I added better lighting in there also and have already been using the space to create livestreams and videos for my YouTube channel and my socials! I hope you’ll check them out and subscribe! My son and I have been working together to create videos for my YouTube. It’s a lot of hard work, but we’re silly and are having fun with it as we learn! I’m embarrassing myself for the sake of art and entertainment! Lol! So, please, enjoy!
