In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

New table...

I'd been doing my videos in front of the big French windows at the shed, which worked great...except I was doing them on a folding TV table.  My sweet Joseph just built me a terrific folding table that's still small enough to fit in well in the 10 x 10' space, will fold completely out of the way if we need to, but is big enough to spread out my art supplies!

Planning and constructing...
The hinge for the legs...

Putting it all together...

Painting the legs...

And here it is at work!


  1. It is GORGEOUS!!! I love those red legs! What a great husband.

  2. Thanks, girl! He IS a real keeper, isn't he!

  3. Oooh, verrrry nice. When I see an empty horizontal surface though, I tend to pile things up on it.

  4. Oh, I love it! Red legs--awesome! So nice that you can have it right by the window so you can really watch the critters, too. :)

  5. Wonderful, to do by own hands - a treasure. I have a table easel, my husband did years ago, it has a special value. :-)

  6. Thanks all! It IS a treasure for that very reason, Nik, though the fact that it fills my needs perfectly is pretty wonderful, too.
