Garage/Studio Reorganization Update

Above:  Garden Supplies & Coat hooks for smocks, work aprons and cleaning items.

The reorganization of my garage/encaustic studio space is completed.  We've been busy working on projects already and that is easier with the addition of a new deep 9-foot long work bench and the relocation of a few existing items.  There is now a corner devoted to the garden tools and they are more visible and easier to access.  Previous posts with photographs that provided some ideas and fresh inspiration were here and here.  I'm sharing a few photos of my own reorganized work space in today's post.

It's a beautiful thing; not in the conventional sense of the word, but beautiful for the ease of function.

Pineapple Finial Full-size Bed

 The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries all over the world.

Pineapples carved into bedposts have been a frequent use of the motif.  I rescued this old bed and reconditioned it in my Workshop.  The head board, foot board and original rails (unusual to still have the rails!) is now available at Home Again Consignment.

Marble-Top Table

I acquired this diminutive old table in a disassembled condition and missing pieces.  We have recreated  missing parts, applied new finish to the wood parts and put this gem back together again.  It's a nice petite tea table or entry parlor table or generously sized plant stand.

This table is NOW available for sale from my workshop.  If you are interested in acquiring this item at the lowest price, contact me ASAP, before I send it out to consignment.

Click on the "Contact Me" button in the right-hand column to send me a message.

I'm happy to report that I was invited to show again this year at Alpine Art Gallery's "Best in Show".  This is a fun event with art inspired by pets and a portion of proceeds of art sales donated to Best Friends Animal Society.  From 6 till 8PM, during the opening reception on June 15th, you may bring your own pet to be photographed at the gallery. 
Come out and enjoy the love!
