My new work space. I’ve really been wanting an actual drafting table for quite a while, and jumped at the discount Dick Blick had, but after assembling it, I have serious doubts as to how long it will last.
Since I was recently got rid of a bed set that was stood up in this corner for like the past 2 years, I was finally able to clear that space out and get my little art table in here. I used to have one just like this, but gave it to my dad to make some space. I got this one at an estate sale (I bet they made millions of these things...). I wish I had the first one back cause it was in a lot better condition than this one. Got my little LED light board with a rotating stand, and a little lamp. Good thing about being in the corner this way is I won’t be as likely to block the ceiling light since I’m a lefty! 😂 I’m sure I’ll do a lot more to customize this space later, but for now, it’s there. .
So for those who don’t know,
I started this year with a lot of goals. Mainly, to find my calling. At the beginning of the 2018 I set some resolutions for myself, draw more, not be so critical with my art, etc.
However, about half way through the year these resolutions shifted, I decided that being a hairstylist was a more reasonable outlet to put my passion in, and so I dove head first into school and into working at a very high end and fast paced focus salon.
I met so many wonderful people and I learned so much, including that my real passion lies with art and drawing and crafting, and not the hair and beauty industry.
It’s amazing to find your true passion and to take the leap and completely quit everything you’ve been working so hard at, but at the end of the day I don’t regret it at all, and I know that my life is being fully directed by God. I fully believe that I needed to go to cosmo school and work almost every day of the week to know that 1. I’m willing to work really hard for something and push myself more than I ever thought possible 2. That I’m worth something and that my art is worth something and that I have a gift and I can still learn and still get better and that it’s okay that I’m not the best and 3. That a close second will never be first place, and I want the Gold medal for my life, and to me that’s art.
If you were here for hair, I’m sorry to disappoint you now by saying this page is only going to be art. But, I encourage you all to follow my journey because for the remainder of 2018 and on, I’m only going to get better and better ✨❤️ thank you so much for the support 🥰 #art#artist#goal#resolution#2018#easel#picasso#draftingtable#nook#craft#draw#cosmetologyschool#change
I have not seen you for a very long time. Stll have the same paper and plastic when we last had our board exam battle. Dusty, rusted and faded, but we need to process something in manual mode... lets do it!!! #architect#manual#draftingtable#parallel#straightedge
my home office is bare bones for moving. this classic drafting table was a birthday present when i was 10 years old. it's got a lot of mileage on it, now moving to it's sixth address. the side tray and classic 'pixar' lamp are still in reasonably good condition, tho the lamp springs are a bit temperamental. ... #DraftingTable#ArtDirector#DrawingTable#PixarLamp
Life before AutoCAD, Revit and when drafting tables were all the rage. ⠀
I've never worked at a drafting table and hate using AutoCAD. Revit is my tool of choice. While there are always improvements that can be made Revit and using software to improve how we design, coordinate and construct buildings is here to stay. ⠀

Currently chipping away at a landscape drawing of my grandma’s house. Inalways find personal pieces like this a ZILLION times more stressful and intimidating than commissions and client work. Does anyone else experience that too??

The “serenity” drafting table & “thinking chair” stool are completed! Both named for what this table should be used for. Wether it’s drawing, writing important words, painting, reading or any other number of things that happen behind a desk like this. The drafting table base is upcycled, cleaned and repainted. The top is three beautiful slabs of knotty yellow poplar joined together creating a top that to me could be interpreted as sands on a beach or the sky of a Monet painting. The stool is my favorite of the two pieces though. The base is an amazingly hand crafted twisted steel design repurposed from an antique wine press. It still had a the lower base of the upper section attached when I was so graciously given it by a friend. The steel has some amazing old patina and rust from the years of wine juices running down them. I started to polish them with my side grinder and thought “but why? This is its history!” So I decided to do a partial polish of the steel leaving areas old and rustic and some areas clean and bright for a nice contrast. Then I took a 3” slab of absolutely stunning live oak which fell during Hurricane Matthew a few years back and sculpted a seat out of it and attached it to the base for a truly one of a kind stool. Both are finished with a hand rubbed wipe on Polyurethane.
