A new workspace

P1040240

Hello to my new studio. I think I may call it that. Up to now I used the dining table in the living room as my work space, but that wasn’t ideal. Luckily we have a table in the kitchen to use for daily meals, but still all my mess in the living room wasn’t a very nice sight.

Because one of the boys moved out some time ago, we have more space , and it was possible to clear one room just for me. And the last couple of weeks we have been moving around a lot of cabinets and boxes. I had my stuff stored in almost all the rooms of the house, and it appeared  that I had quite some materials and tools twice. Now everyting is in the same room and near at hand.

The table was found at a thrift store and measures a massive  2.2  by 1 meter. It was a bit of a hassle to get it upstairs because of its size and weight, but the men of the family managed it and I’m so happy with it.

If you look at the first picture, you might see that the only ironing board in the room is quite small. Perfect for small patchwork, but for larger pieces not really appropriate. So again I went to the thrift store where I found this beautiful old wooden ironing board.

Perfect, but it did need some work.

So I took everything off; cleaned it and made a new cover.

First I put on some underlay from the carpet store (!)

Guess I’m all set now.
