Shelves For The Studio

Back in November when I visited Cecilia of My Thrift Store Addiction, we went to Comfort the last day I was there.

There at 8th Street Market, I found these cool metal grates that looked like they'd make the perfect shelves for the studio.

I bought 5 and brought them home where they've been waiting for the day they would become shelves.

Then this past weekend, Bruce made the shelf unit! I told him how I wanted them to look industrial and have adjustable shelves and he took my ideas and made them reality.

They are even better than I imagined!

He took metal pipe to make the legs and then used "U" bracket thingys to hold them on. (Yep that's a technical name for them).

They screw tightly on but can be loosened so I can adjust the shelves to whatever height I need.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, he's the best! He can take my ideas and make them happen. What a blessing!

Anyway, with the shelf unit done, the studio is pretty much ready for me to move my art stuff into it. I just have to decide what I need to keep at the city house and what can come on up to the studio.

I'll leave you with images of the last two paintings I finished. It's going to be wonderful to start painting in the studio where I don't have to struggle with bad lighting.
