I got the key to my new place on Friday and I've been so excited to start moving my stuff! This morning I shuffled in a few things and quickly realized...I have a LOT of crap! I guess I'll de-clutter while moving in!
I'm packing my stuff in these plastic bins. This moving process will take awhile, and I'm okay with that. There are so many things to do to the studio: paint walls, do repairs, replace some lighting, etc. So I cannot get settled in too quickly. I'm thinking I should be 100 percent in before the springtime.
I love love love these built in shelves under the stairs. This building is huge and old, but I'm only renting maybe 400 square feet of it. The space in front of my area is the Arts Council, where I work every Friday and the space behind is a flower shop. The upstairs is unoccupied.
You can see the flower shop through this window in the wall. My dad came by on Friday and I gave him the grand tour. He's a super handy man jack of all trades, and he was almost more excited than I am. He said it would take no effort at all to tear down this shelf and build another one. I'll put it on the to-do list, dad!
My poor little tree kept getting picked on by my cat, so I brought it up to the studio. This huge window is facing south and it gets a lot of sun. I'm pretty sure Mr. Bonsai tree will enjoy all the extra light.
I'm trying my best to not spend a huge amount of money on new things. New Desk! New Storage Things! New Whatever! I have everything I need and more, so I'll just have to save my money and use it towards quality wall paint and the new shelf. So excited!
