It sure beats dragging all my framing supplies out of storage and have to use the kitchen table or counter top as place to frame my artwork and cut mat boards and foam core! I will be adding pegboard to the wall space above the table which will provide additional storage for tools.
Last year, my dad also built me a storage unit to organize foam board, mat board, sheets of glass, as well as various supports for my pastel paintings. I got the idea from an artist friend and then custom designed my own to accept standard sheets of mat board. This storage unit is built of pine and plywood and has the same as the table.
The very first project I convinced my dad to build for me was a taboret to store all my pastels. After looking at many types of taborets, with careful planning and by combining several designs, I came up with this baby!
I just love my modest and cozy little basement art studio! ~ Thanks to my wonderful dad who so enthusiastically built these items for me ♥ I know they will be cherished and used for many, many years to come.
