I only had one sure idea when we had the new studio built, and that was this back wall.
The four closet doors (two sets of two) slide all the way from one side of the room to the other. The amount of
crap supplies those two closets house is amazing! I keep trying to whittle it down. Anyway, I also wanted the doors to serve as a design wall when quilting and that worked out pretty well, too.
(non-quilters: a design wall is covered in flannel so you can just toss your cotton quilt squares up on it when planning out the design of your quilt). I just put velcro on the sides of two outer doors (they're on the same track) and velcro on two ends of a piece of flannel and put it up when needed. Maybe it'd make more sense if I threw some quilt blocks up there...next time I'm using it I'll take a pic.
My really really favorite part of this back wall, the whole room, really; is my little homage to artsy craftsy people I have come across.
I at first wanted it to be like Monica's fantabulous 'ironing station' and clearly I fell way short. First of all, what was I thinking when I only made it three feet wide? Oh, I know. I was thinking I needed closets to hide
crap supplies, so I guess even this 36" section is a sacrifice. I did buy a little 30" table top ironing board to squeeze in there I also set it up to be a little shipping station for etsy sales. Looks cute enough, but still; not big enough to be practical.
Really what it is is a showcase for some wonderful pieces I've bought from etsy sellers and received from friends.
And a couple things I made, too. I won't list all the awesome artists and crafters represented here, but if you have any questions just ask!
My mother's here this week and we're hanging out in the studio sewing (one can only shop so much!) so no more pictures for now. Have a great day!
