Over the past 7 years, I have grown to adore the owner & assistant manager. They are such a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. On several occasions, I have taken in pictures of furniture pieces or projects that I was working on at one time or another. Without fail, these to ladies consistently knew EXACTLY what I was trying to accomplish in my DIY escapades and eagerly encouraged me to just, "GO FOR IT"!
Because my workspace is in my dining room adjacent to my kitchen, I am always on the look out for new, unconventional storage & organizational ideas. One day, while I was perusing through the store, I showed the owner a picture of my crafty workspace. She immediately said, "Oh, you need to go vertical"! She then proceeded to explain to me that the best way to maximize space in small areas is to take advantage of vertical space by storing & organizing things vertically. BRILLIANT!
My current workspace desk doubles as my computer workstation & my artsy area. I decided to give the "GO VERTICAL" idea a try. I purchased this old, vintage wooden shelf from the owner's boutique for $17. It's perfect!
