My New Studio

I got a please so here are the version 1 photos... lol.
I still have tweaking to do, and there's a couple of things still to be done, but generally this will be it for a little while...

So here goes...

Looking across the room from the new french doors....


and from the other corner...



Now, behind the shelves I have put the freezers, so this is where I want the false wall to go. DH is suggesting we want to take out the rollerdoor altogether, and put in a massive window...
I do like the little storage area though, where I can hide empty boxes and other stuff and it's a good spot for the chest freezers with easy access. What do you think?

This is shot from the shelves towards the back wall.


The sewing machine is on the desk, but I will probably store it under the desk under the window.
I need to get a larger piece of vinyl to cover the 2 trestle tables, and piece of carpet for the floor. I love the foam mats, but the chairs will cut into them, so I will get a piece of carpet to protect it.
I think the table will be big enough to have a few friends over the scrap don't you think?

Here is the set of shelves holding most of my stuff... there is almost a whole shelf empty now... I might just have to rectify that.



Looking up the wall from the french doors. I got dh to put the shelf unit from the old window on the wall for me.



Along the back wall I have my old cutting desk back (this can hold layouts for display or while I wait for something to dry), and the sets of drawers have all of my sewing stuff, the stuff for the knk, spare stationery, etc, etc, etc...



And finally, my painting desk...
this is new (well the desk has been out in the shed!) but I now have somewhere I can paint, emboss, spray or whatever messy all in the one spot! and leave it to dry.



I still have a few things I want to do...
I have hooks in the wall... just got to do the work to hang there, and I want to get a cane chair to sit in the corner, so I have somewhere peaceful to sit and read.

And the best thing... I can shut the door and have some peace and quiet when I need to!

So... what do you think?
