I realized I hadn’t shown my new workspace here, so I figured it would be time to show it off a little.
Before, this room served the function of, well… a room for our guests and a room that I did some sewing in, sometimes. Then IGAD grabbed me by the ankles and started whacking me around like a pro wrestler, so I figured I needed to answer in kind!
I am reusing the table I bought for sewing and left the other Ikea table downstairs when I’m trying to decide whether to move all of my computer paraphernalia upstairs or not. I did put all of my school books neatly within reach, and in the small drawer block I keep my drawing paper and cables (I have a LOT of cables!). The drawer I grabbed from Hema awhile back, and it’s a nice pop of color in the otherwise neutral room.
A sneak peek into my pencil collection shows that I’m not that much into traditional drawing. A lot of this stuff was bought for school. I upgraded my compass because the previous one was very wobbly in use.
With so much table space I can also comfortably keep my tablet in a place where I can easily grab it and start drawing if I feel like it. Win-win!
On the other side is my beloved drafting table.
It might look old, but it’s very much in working condition and wins fiddling around with a T-square anyday. I like the extra “wall space” to put up works-in-progress and references. Though I have to admit I wasn’t planning on fitting something so large in the room, but luckily it works!
It’s quite luxurious to be able to close the door, turn up the music and work away on a blog post, drawing or a school assignment! And you know what it makes that much more a zen-moment?
A steaming cup of jasmine tea.
Now… back to work on my assignments!
