Shut the door!


Who else remembers Señor Wences? His "shut the door" routine was one of my favorites. Anyway... the doors are now on the window seat. The two cabinets in my studio that form the ends of my worktable each have double doors (not shown). I must have sweet-talked my husband into adding them when I built those cabinets, because I haven't done doors before. That was not as easy as it looks (wait, did it look easy??) They appear to be a little crooked in the picture, but they're much straighter in person. The foam for the cushion is sitting on top, awaiting it's cover. And even though you can't see her, the dog was sitting on my lap while I took pictures because she was convinced that I wanted to take a picture of her and wouldn't get out of the way otherwise. Then when I was done and wanted to take her picture, she ran away. Contrary puppy.

Here's a view with the media cart in front of the window seat, acting like an artsy coffee table (but I don't drink coffee, so buckets of art supplies are much better.) I plan to start one more big (really big) piece of furniture tomorrow and then I might be good for a while. Although I sketched a taboret-like creature to hold buttons and little doodads - tall and skinny with lots of shallow drawers with dividers. Hmm...

I'm super impressed at your building your own studio furniture; it looks excellent. Bloody overachievers, I dunno ...
