Talae Upgrades His Office/Hobby Space

Recommended Posts

This is a look at the disaster of what the space currently looks like (you have been warned):

Not pictured is the rather large corner desk, the Detolf shelves on the other side of the room, and the terrain taking up the closet.

 

Here is the Ikea purchase from today that will help substantially with organization. (Two 3x3 Kallax shelves, three sets of drawers to fill three of the 18 cubes, two 6-drawer Alex drawers, and a countertop to go on top of the drawers)

I may eventually get another 3x3 to stack on one or both of the others, and also may eventually get some doors and/or drawers for the Kallax shelves, but not yet. Ikea is a little over an hour away, so this combined with lunch and dessert was a decent amount of a day trip with the family.

 

Wish me luck!

That before picture won't seem so bad about 25% of the way in.  At least not if you're anything like me - it always seems to get worse before it gets better whenever I attempt to organize anything.

To be honest, the before pic is slightly exaggerated due to this space being a catch all for things in the last week or so. My goal is for most of it to be hidden away and organized by this weekend.

My before picture would look worse than that. So there will be no such picture.

Here is the progress as it stands (three of the four structures built and much of the stuff in various states of 'not in quite the right place')

Update: no pics this time, but thought I would check in to say I am stopping for a snack and a show with the family. The shelves and drawers are all built. The countertop is next. Then everything gets pulled out to get organized.

Kallaxes (Kallaxi?) and countertop installed. Two sets of the three drawers installed. Only one set of drawers left. Then for the organization.

This is still chaos, but it is beginning to be organized chaos.

You're moving pretty fast.  I've been working on mine for 6 months!

I am determined! 

 

I want this done by the end of the weekend! Then I can actually start painting again!

More work! The desk and drawers are pretty much there, as as the trays for minis. I went a little nuts with the label maker, but it makes my heart happy.

 

The stuff on shelves needs to be organized still. Then I need to deal with what this has done to the rest of the room.

      So after finding myself working at my computer desk or gaming table (or on my lap) due to lack of space at my actual hobby table, I decided it was time to do some cleaning so I could go back to just sitting down and painting instead of spending time moving/balancing paints and partially completed project, which doesn’t inspire much creativity.  
       

      an older picture back from when the painting table was usable...  the airbrush is in the unfinished part of the basement, with the hood properly vented to the outside.  
       
      TV was moved onto a cobbled-together platform I made with scrap wood onto the desk.  Some Ikea Besta frames were added to the walls next to my computer table and above the painting table.
      Content is not final as I need to sort out all my storage and display space, but it’s getting knickknacks off both desks for the moment. 
       

       
      Unfinished projects or works in progress will go into the unit above the desk, freeing up space for whatever I’m tackling at the moment. 

       I might put some lights under the unit, but the ikea ones make pretty yellow light.  Will have to find a better alternative.  
       
      Next up will be a drawer unit under the desk that will hopefully welcome the various paints, materials and things spread everywhere.

      One benefit of our unplanned and sudden move is that we will finally have a hobby room.

      The first few displays were moved over first:


       
      Then came a lot more of the mess:


       
      Shelves have been set up, and a folding table arrived from Amazon:



      An older end table has been drafted as a paint and build station:


       
      Once it's finished up, I'll have to take shots of the whole set-up, but there's still a bit left to go.

      Now that our new house is done and we are unpacking, living in it for 11 days as of the time of this posting. I wanted to go ahead and start up a WIP thread showing my hobby/game room and the WIP as the last few days I've been setting it up so that I can paint. My OCD won't allow me to actually paint (even though I have an area for it now) until I have the rest of the room cleaned up and organized!
       
      Let's start up with the original plans -
       

       
      And here it is after it was done, a blank slate!

      Ol' Stern's getttin' ready to start his 2012-2013 paint season. So, I spent Saturday dusting off (literally) my paint area, getting things re-arranged and ready. Also, sat down and put together my paint schedule and took an inventory of my paints...
       
      Snapped a quick pic before my camera's battery died.
       
      Anyone else wanna post their paint areas? Yes, yes. I know we've done this before...
       
      SK, almost re-ta go!
