Elayne Riggs' Journal (for Leah)

So you're probably wondering what happened with all the Ikea stuff we bought last Sunday for Robin's studio. At this point he's about halfway through assembling it all, so I thought I'd give you a sneak peak at the first half. But first, a flashback to what the original artboard-shelving unit looked like:

Okay, now here's how everything's expanded to fill most of the length of the "back" wall:

The shelves await restocking with artwork, shipping materials, etc.

No, the room isn't tilted, that's just the way it looks due to parallax, or so I'm told. The old blinds have - "blind has?" - been replaced by a new one (just two more rooms to go and the whole apartment's done!), and the modular organizers we picked up at Staples fit nicely under the table, which (because of its color) I think gives a nice illusion of the shelving/work surface being continued around the room. I can hardly wait to see what Robin does with the other half of the studio!
