Organize that Closet for Your Canvas Stash


Even though the spare bedroom has become an art studio, the closet is still set up to accommodate hanging clothes and storing a few sweaters and such.    The bottom of the closet had typically been covered with boxes of canvas in various sizes.   While they were accessible, it was not easy to plan and find a specific canvas.

On a trip to the thrift store (2nd Helpings in Roanoke) last week I found this computer desk.  The simple clean (straight) legs make a perfect holder for canvas.  And yes, they are assorted by size with pieces of cardboard as dividers.  The top of the desk holds stacks of smaller canvas.  And the old keyboard tray holds my references for the works currently underway.  

No more wasting time searching and more time for making art.   

Check out all the thrift stores operated by the Rescue Mission.  
You may find what you need to be better organized too.
