Above photos are where I started. My challenge is how and where to store drawing materials, finished drawings and flat paper projects. I moved the rolls into the thin tote on the top shelf. I would love to have a set of map drawers in my dream studio for just such materials. Some of my finished artwork, I amy even consider framing. Some are projects from college, they bring back memories and happy thoughts. I think my perfect studio ought to have display space for this. Maybe the pencil drawings in a hot pink lacquered frame! Ooh, how fun would that be!
Between the shelves are stacks of bins, the before picture shows how precarious they all are. The after photo, all I did was move similar totes together for efficient stacking and grouping of like things, to make it look and feel less cluttered.

The office supply cabinet: Printer papers, CD's, inks, paper clips, binder clips, miscellaneous samples and some supplies. This is not how it will stay, but I can see how the space can be used and the purpose evolved. At this point, I am assessing what I have and what I need to make space for storing.
