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.

  8. Yes, you definitely can't have too many shelves! Isn't it funny how no matter how much space we have there's always something else we want to incorporate but we need more room! There's just way too much inspiration out there! Lol

  10. There is not much that I like better than being able to peek into other people's studios. These are so bright and airy and organized. Mine looks very organized for photos, but watch out when I'm in the middle of a project, LOL. Of course that's always the time I hear a knock on the door:)
    Now I'm going to visit your other two blogs, but not before following this one. I hope you will pop over and visit me , too.
    Your newest blogging sister,
    Connie :)
