Sharyl's " Clean-up, Fix Up Your Work Space" Challenge and Blog Hop - Only the 'before' pics

When I signed up for Sharyl's Challenge, I was sure I could make it , since she had given ample time for a great clean up..

But , as usual, I forgot that March 1st come with two days short , in February... so I did manage to click the 'before pics, and also tidied up my stash of beads. But it still does not make the Clean-up complete.. so I find that I cannot post my 'after pics' until I have done the rest of it too.. !!

I have been blog hopping and have reached just half-way..the transformations are amazing. !!

This is my Work space.  It has a lovely bay window, with loads of natural light. I did not give add any window dressing because I love all that sunlight....

We had our home renovated,couple of years ago, and I had a cabinet maker do this space for me. Two overhead shelves to keep my bead and paint supplies. The granite slab  is where I keep my Lap top. This is where it gets mostly messy..and the Bay window seat..where stuff just piles up ..

 There is a big pull out draw under the bay window seat, which is just filled with things - everything that I think I do not need on a daily basis , and left over material from previous projects, end up inside that. 

There is one more window opposite my work space, which seems to be littered with things like old bottles, etc..

Once I am done, I will definitely post the pictures..

I would love any suggestions to better my work space.. or what YOU would add to it.

Meanwhile.., here is the list of participants of this lovely event. Apologies for not making it on time..

  2. Thanks for posting your "before" photos for the blog hop! It's a joy to see your work space, whether finished or not! What lovely open windows and all that spacious shelving! I also love the special nooks and drawers around those window areas! What I wouldn't give for that kind of practical space and all that natural light! How nice you had the opportunity to integrate a special work area into a home remodel, getting things built in such practical ways for your artistic needs! Thanks again for sharing! Please drop us a note when you post your "after" photos so we can all take a look! --Sharyl

  4. I also love bay windows and wIndow seats! The drawer below is a fabulous idea! I've had a couple of window seats (on rescued from a remodel) but they all had hinged lids instead, so needed the cushion off (and anything else) to access the storage space!
