Creative Space Cleanup

As you know I am in the midst of a big purge of stuff in my house. One of the main areas to get an overhaul is my creative space.

Looking at it now, I still feel I have bunches of stuff in here, and I can't believe how much came out.

Before


After

Gone are lots of the things on the walls, replaced by 1 prized piece.
The work table has been thinned out as well, but we'll see how long that lasts.

My goal... If it's not being truly used in the space, if it's just there to look pretty, remove it. (Except for a few items on the wall)


All my bits and pcs are organized neatly in these old printers trays. Not all over the place like before.


this room does double duty with a fold out sofa. I've removed several pieces from in and around this area while keeping the useful things. I actually use that metal table to do my rotary cutting when I sew.


This is new, I removed some decorative only mirrors, and replaced with these hooks mounted to an old board to show off (not hide) my bags that I still love, but am not currently carrying.


Sorry for the badly exposed shots, the camera must have been set up wrong, I am not a photographer. I still need to touch up paint all the nail holes in here, but I've got to get some matching paint. I may still thin it out even more. But it does feel a bit less overwhelming when I'm in there.

Just a few of the items I've removed from this room that are currently on Etsy

Hi Margo...Your space looks like a place you can really be inspired by and efficient in. I'm been pulling stuff out of my creative space, too, mostly little stuff, and throwing together small projects that have been hanging around. I always enjoying seeing what you've found and what you're up to. Have a great weekend!
