Ideas For The Art Studio

I'm off to the farm this week to paint trim and stain the floor in the studio - the last bit of work to do before I can start setting up the space. Since there's really not much to show, I thought I'd share some ideas I've gathered for the space.

I need shelving as I have books, frames, canvases...all that need a home. This bookcase is nice and I really like the brush holder.

 I like the shallow shelves in this picture. They'd be great for all the cans and bottles of paint. The inspiration/bulletin board area is also really great. I do have an idea for an area to hang photos I'm working off of.

This one is one I really like - notice the canvas storage above the bookshelves and worktable. I want to replicate this is some form or fashion.

These shelves are only one can deep -I'd love something like this so I could see at a glance what paints I had. Loads of them too...I don't think you can have too many shelves. 😊

Right now my oil paint tubes are in a toolbox. I'd love to have something like this that I could clip them on. Sure would make finding a certain color easy instead of digging through my box.

Another paint tube system also fabulous:

 Love the idea of clip boards to clip inspiration photos up. You can usually find clipboards at the thrift store for next to nothing.

Another setup for canvas storage:

This is an idea I could easily do - it's an old tv cart with pipe dividers. hmmm, guess I'll have to look for one if Bruce doesn't have time to build me one like in the previous photos.

This one I like for the tin ceiling and large worktable in the center. Not sure if I'll have a table in the center though. However, I do plan on one against the wall like the back wall in the photo.

These are all great ideas and will help me figure out how to set the studio up. I am looking forward to planning the space out.
