After all my work on the studio, it’s just not available in the winter. A few small electric heaters and a wood cook stove still take time to warm it up. Supplies that can freeze just can’t be left there. Sitting down to work on a project for only half an hour here and there simply isn’t compatible with my studio. I love it, there’s a peace there that is almost tangible. I simply can’t use it in the winter unless I haul supplies down and dedicate hours to work like I did with the sunflower table!
Therefore, my dining table looks like this.
Almost half is covered in alcohol inks and supplies. Not the best look or exactly conducive to meals. I went on a search for an alternative.
When we thought that Johnny might have to live with us, Victoria, Megan and I did a panicked clean out of the Indian room. I had a large table in there and craft supplies scattered everywhere. In an intense day of work, we had 90% packed up and cleared out. It wasn’t easy in more ways than one. Turns out, Johnny spent only one night in there. But now a large armoire has taken up space and my craft table I had in there would no longer fit. Besides, it would be nice to be able to clear it off and hide whatever craft supplies I am using at the time.
Enter a small desk I’ve had in a downstairs bedroom. It’s not in the best of shape, but I’m a fan of waterfall fronts and this has rounded backs on the drawers, a unique style I’ve never seen in old furniture before. Wiped out, drawers lined, and covered with a protective tablecloth, I think she’s pretty cute and the perfect sized addition to the Indian room.Find me here!

A great new studio area. Enjoy your time in there creating.
Good solution so you can work during the winter and be comfortable. And you can enjoy being surrounded by the nice things in your Indian
room. Have fun!
Reminds me of my grandmother’s desk. What exactly is a waterfall front? You say the drawers are rounded in the back?? Does that mean they aren’t rectangles? My great aunt’s desk has rounded fronts on all the drawers. The drawers are also mortise and tenon whatever. I don’t know what it’s called.
Sometimes the best solutions are repurposing something already in our home. Looks like a cozy creating space.
Wonderful idea. all the supplies have a space to fit in.
