Green storage

My fly tying room and office is slowly taking shape - and color. A set of shelves and small chests were painted green.

I have blogged about this before: GFF is getting a new headquarter.

The room in our new house, which serves as my day-to-day office when working as a self-employed consultant, is of course also where GFF is created and edited. I have been lucky enough to lay my hands on the largest separate room in the house, and that has been utilized to make a nice computer workspace and setting up a fly tying and photo table – plus a lot of shelves for books, fly tying, photo gear and whatnot.

When we moved in there were a couple of small shelves hung on one of the walls in this room, and I took them down before painting.
I saved them, and pooled them with a few more smaller shelves and bookcases that we already had. I imagined that these could become storage space above the fly tying table.
Since they were an assorted mess of shapes and colors, I decided to homogenize them a bit by painting them all the same color. Some were already a fresh, light green and rather than trying to cover this with some other color, I chose to paint everything the same green color.

A quick sketch, some measures, a lot of holes, plugs and screws and the shelves hung on the wall in a kind of ordered chaos.
I had a small IKEA plywood chest with four small drawers, and acquired a couple more and gave them a layer of green too.

So now a bit of my storage space in the office is green and has all kinds of shapes. I have put the first few odds and ends into them, but will start organizing things once I come home from next week's week-long fishing trip.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
