Here I go again; reorganizing my studio to make it function better. My latest tweak is a small area devoted to packing. Now every time something sells in my Etsy shop, you'll find me standing right here.
A wicker chair used to sit along this half wall of my studio, but I hardly ever sat in it. So I transformed this space into a much needed packing center.
I chose to use a vintage ironing board as my work surface. In my attic, I have a collection of several wooden ironing boards. I like to use them when we have summer parties in our back yard. Two or three ironing boards placed end to end make a simple and rustic buffet table.
Within easy reach is my vintage Scotch tape dispenser. I much prefer relics like this one rather than new, plastic models. An old kitchen canister that was missing its lid is now used as a small trash can. I spiffed it up with some red rick rack.
My other vintage ironing boards are plain wood. This one is extra special. It's The Rij-o-Matic, so fabulous with its green paint and original label.
On the bottom shelves next to the ironing board are a couple of baskets filled with packing tape, bakery twine, glue sticks, scissors and postal scales.
The remaining shelves store a few Etsy items that have yet to sell.
I've grouped the antique gardening books together. Quite frankly, I'm kind of hoping they don't sell too quickly — I love how they look on the shelves.
I feel so organized!
