Newest Acquisition

As if my studio didn't have enough furniture in it, I went and got another piece.

Judy Slater, who also has a studio in the Transit Building was reorganizing her studio from one of polymer clay making to that of drawing and painting.  When she asked if anyone wanted a display stand she was trying to get rid of I said yes (Without thinking where I was going to put it.)

The day we brought it over to my studio (it took three of us...... that thing was fairly heavy) we set it right inside the door until I could decide what to do with it.  It sat there, blocking the light from the window and I thought it would have to be moved.  But, lo and behold it had lights in it (and some really nice drawers below.)  That spot had always been dead space.  I had a shelving unit there but it never attracted any attention. The light from the window backlit the pieces and they weren't very visible.  

But now, anyone just walking through the hallway is caught by the light.  And since the light comes from above, the pieces stand out.  It's staying where is sets.  (Thank goodness.  I didn't know how I was going to move it anyway.)

Had to take this one by standing inside the vault that is across from the cabinet.

It's such a treat, isn't it, to have such a pretty place to display your pretty pieces!

And storage space too! I think you hit the jackpot with this....
