Wow - I have a desk!!

I spent the day yesterday - yes the whole day - clearing my desk and having a bit of a shuffle. As it is so rare for my desk to be so clear I thought I would record the moment forever!!

Welcome to my work space. The chest of drawers on the left are in the process of being re-covered/painted. Originally I painted them about 9 years ago for my eldest son's room and have now reclaimed them, so the underwater theme is being changed to more my taste.

On the wall is my ribbon holder that my lovely husband built for me. The top of it is some guttering which holds all the full rolls and the rest clip on a bar along the bottom. Under that is a glass dish which belonged to my Nan and in that I put all my vintage lace, lace doileys etc along with my "special" dressmaking scissors (the pair that no-one is allowed to use for anything on pain of death!).

The shelf on the right hand side is where I put all my pressies and work that other people have done - apart from one or two of my own pieces. The wall has some of my encaustic paintings and some of my other hangers etc on it.

Take a good look at how clear and clean it is because in about 10 mins it will look like a tip!!

You have a lovely work space! I just recently acquired a bargain of a desk so I know the excitement of having an arty messy place!
Enjoy :o)

What a fabulous snoop I've just had Dee - lol. Your work space is fab - and so organised! Love the ribbon guttering idea and how you've used embossed metal to decorate the fronts of some of your drawers. (have you linked to WOYWW - I'm sure lots of crafters would be interested to see your lovely desk)

That's so organised, and so pretty as well. It makes me want to sit down and make things, and there's no better thing to feel about a craft space. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your boot sale bargains; the vintage typewriter is lovely.

Sorry I'm so late getting here this week. I got distracted by all that ribbon on your desk (grin). I see you are also a fan of re-inkers. I think they are the best for the money. Love the tidy look. You may even want to keep it that way. Happy really belated WOYWW from #1.
