Now that school is back in session I have started to really use my studio for more than paying bills and blogging. I started painting and solidifying my ideas for the studio. When I paint I like to have all of my acrylics organized by color. Now that I have more than a 48” desk space in the living room and plenty of wall space I decided I wanted a shelf to hold all of my paints. This week I laid them all out and realized I needed more space than I thought. I wanted a shelf... or two that was just wide enough to hold the paint tubes. I was going to have a contractor build some for me and then I decided to take a stroll through IKEA.
Bingo… just what I needed, exactly the right length to go over the IKEA piece I am using now… but also the exact dimensions I will need when I put my vertical and plan files on that wall. (I found the perfect plan files on Craig’s list for $250.00 but they were sold by the time I called).
The shelves are called Ribba… they come in 3 lengths and both black or white. “L” hung them for me today.
I organized my paints. The top shelf is for my work in progress.
I am toying with the idea of another shelf... but for now
I LOVE IT…
