Louise Nelson is fortunate to be able to rent a small studio space next to her unit which is in a lovely older style house in Adelaide. Louise cant do to much in relation to putting up shelves and have storage units built so with that in mind she has hit the discount stores and used what cheaper storage alternatives she can find. Louise's actual scrap desks are a wooden top tables from the hardware store. She has stained them and sealed them as they were originally raw wood.
Louise has also positioned her main desk under the only window with all day natural light.
As you can see from this photo Louise has used a variety of options for storage and shelving. These shelves are actually wooden shoe racks that Louise has bought from the discount store. Louise has used the quite extensively; they are easy to assemble and reconfigure to suit the space. Louise stores her inks and some of her journal pens in the drawer sets and odds and bods supplies that she is currently using close at hand in the plastic handled containers [bought from the supermarket].
Up on the top shelf to the left you may notice the cardboard magazine holders, Louise stores her rub-ons in those.
This the area that louise does her video taping for step-by-steps. At the top of the picture in the right hand corner you can just see a white wire rack, louise attaches her camera to this. It is the shoe rack from her clothes dryer.
This area is what Louise affectionately calls her 'Spray Booth'. It used to be an old walk in pantry. As you can see Louise has a passion for misting, and has been fortunate to be able to purchase 2 of the Tattered Angels racks for storage of her mists.
Louise stores her masks just on a bulldog clip and hangs them on a hook.
All Louise's paints etc are stored in cheap plastic containers.
Louise bought this industrial matting from the hardware store to protect the carpet underneath.
