Just finished arranging my Back Porch Studio where it has now become a wonderful work space for my craft work.  I had been working at my small table in the kitchen where it was really crowded and hard to have my paints nearby.   Now I have lots of room to spread out and my tools are near at hand.

I purchased a 6 foot folding table, a 5 foot folding table and used my 4 foot camper table to make a "U" shaped work station.  I have room for my sewing machine and paint supplies on top and storage under the tables for my inventory.  The other side of the room will be for framed canvas paintings that I display on easels.

I attached a light fixture under the shelf over my work station and also have overhead lighting and a table lamp in the corner.  I brought my office chair into the studio and it is perfect for moving about while working.

I really love this arrangement and am excited to begin painting once again.  Just finished my Alligator Series and plan to do a Childhood Memories, Rocking Chair, and Front Porch Series next.

  2. You have created a really nice place to work. Looks really cozy and a happy place to be creative.

    1. Hi JO... Yes, it is so nice to have all my art supplies in one spot - for a change.
