There’s nothing like an organized space to help us work with focus and efficiency. School children ... college kids ... office workers ... home managers ... a fully functioning workspace helps us all get the job done!
We recently put out the call to our community of creators: create or upgrade your workspace in our Wonderful Workstation Challenge! Contenders were invited to submit in Small & Mighty, Moderate but Magical, or the Outrageous Overhaul category.
As usual, our crowd came through! Today, we are pleased to announce our workstation winners. Congratulations!
Small and Mighty:
“I struggled to find a workspace after March when all my music "in person" classes went to the Zoom platform. I was using a few tall stools but felt unorganized and didn't have a permanent place to work from. I finally built a narrow table that matched the length of my loveseat. This way I could always use it as a "back of the couch" console table if I didn't need it as a desk. It measures only 13.5 inches deep by 60 inches long. I had been given a set of four hairpin legs and thought that these would work perfectly.”
“This challenge inspired me and I dug [the desk] out and transformed it into a modern and chic new workstation. I removed all the hardware and painted the base and drawers with a glossy, super-tough, Rust-Oleum Protective Enamel oil-based paint, in a rich, royal blue. This paint was perfect for adding the durability I needed for a workstation I would be using heavily. For the top, I used more Protective Enamel, but this time in semi-gloss white, for a durable worksurface that would hold up to my daily wear and tear. It's amazing how some simple paint transformed this old relic into a space I love to sit at!”
“I took the opportunity of my son going out into the world on his own to give me the awesome work space i needed! I utilized a few things left behind and made them my own. I painted the cabinet, and had the large workspace put in for my office work and a jewelry making station!”
Congratulations also to @Dottie, who won the random voter draw and will receive a Rust-Oleum prize pack! 🎊
Happy workday, Creators! Thanks to all of our participants (below), who dazzled us with their creative workspace solutions 🙌🏽
