I recently moved to a bigger apartment and that I now have my first real art studio! When we heard that we got the apartment, I immediately started looking for inspiration on Pinterest on how to organize all my art supplies in my new art studio. In the meantime, I bought some useful stuff which I would like to show to you. Maybe they will inspire you for your own (future) art studio.
Ofcourse I bought the famous IKEA cart you see on almost every pinterest picture of an art studio. If you check out my earlier blogpost with art studio inspiration, you will know what I mean.
This cart cost 50 euros and was the most expencive thing I purchased for my art studio. It is cheaper now: 39 euro's or so. Maybe I will get a second one in an other color.
I bought this towel ring for like 80 cents or so, in the ZEEMAN, which is a Dutch (?) shop where you can buy clothing, underwear, cosmetics, cleaning supplies and home decorations. When I bought it, I didn't really know what to use it for, but it looked like it could be useful. And so it is.
In a thrift shop (where I bought a lot of my furniture, hooray!) I found this cute magazine basket for about 2 euros and I immediately knew it would be great for my drawings and paintings that I made on paper. Turns out it really is great.
Magazines Side Table
In that same thrift shop I bought this magazine side table (or whatever it is), for the different kinds of paper I have. This is just perfect for it, and so much cheaper then a cabinet, cause I've spend only 3 euros on this thing!
These things I also bought in the ZEEMAN, for 69 cents each, with the idea to hang my smaller tubes of paint on a (bulletin) board.
I bought these boxes in the ALDI, a supermarket that also has a small section with office stuff or home decoration, for I think 10 euros or so. I've put collage stuff in there, like magazines, pictures, different kinds of paper etc.
I saw a lot of these clipboards on images on Pinterest, and immediately fell in love with the way people use them! So I bought like ten of these, I think for 1 euro each.
IKEA Pants hangers
These pants hangers were also on some pictures on Pinterest, to serve as a way of drying paintings. I bought them at IKEA for 79 cents each. Don't know if they would come in handy, though.
Alltogether I spend 79,45 euros on all this! What would you have bought as well if you were me? And do you have ideas to use these things in a different way? Comment below!
I am a photographer, visual artist, (screen)writer and filmmaker. On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
P.S. I am not a native English speaker, so my English is far from excellent. Sorry for that.
