The resurection of the black hole in my studio

This area of my studio has been such a useless eyesore for so long. I definitely needed to create more storage and lots of order where chaos reined before.

I spent the last three days creating this rack to store all the flotsam that was crammed in here. Now I have a decent area for my oil paintings and blank canvasses and panels as well as the framed pieces that were leaning against the wall. With a little shifting of my big easel and a shift in the position of my taboret it was a smooth transition. 

Now there's some order here
