design wall

The wall with the cupboard door (the second image from my last post) is going to the  design wall. It has the largest flat area, it can be viewed from a distance and has natural light coming from the window on the right hand side (out of view). I will have to navigate the overhead pipes and the plug sockets to get the result I want. A soft pinboard , affordable and lightweight, covered in a neutral coloured chad should do the trick.  This is the first design wall I have attempted, following methods gleaned form the web. More about this later.

The studio furniture is to be on wheels, so that the space can be reconfigured easily and as long as the brakes function well and hold the tables securely, it will work nicely.

So this week  castors will be fitted into the red table legs. The castors were bought  from Ikea and to these adapt these to suit my needs it will need lag bolts to insert into the leg ends.

Once this has been tried and tested, the plan is to add castors to a 90 x 146 cm and 8o cm high table which will make a great surface to spread out on. Although I have been considering the floor as an attractive option…….

Next item up for consideration are the red pipes.…I am not allowed to paint them (H&S reasons) so some creative curtains are on their way !!
