16 elements of a perfect hobby corner in a small flat

Unpacking all the hobby accessories can take a lot of time cutting from what you can spend on the hobby. Fortunately if you are short both on space and time, you can usually still squeeze a small, permanent console table and be able to sit and hobby any time you want

My perfect hobby corner
  1. A console table made out of a classic, ancient Singer sewing machine
  2. Mini-cabinets for paints and tools. I don't like to keep all paints on display as cleaning dust would be a nightmare.
  3. A painting station for better organisation and easier cleaning
  4. A natural colour (5500K) LED light
  5. An extra-top-class, ├╝ber-comfortable chair. This one is from a Polish company called Profim
  6. Self-healing cutting mats
  7. A cork board with samples, notes and inspiration
  8. Handy technical paints and thinners
  9. Boxes with spare bases, water transfers and other common bits
  10. Hobby and wargaming books
  11. Books about history and also modern warfare for reference
  12. A cabinet for the miniature collection
  13. The painting and modelling backlog
  14. A quality compressor for an airbrush. The most important thing for successful airbrushing.
  15. Some audio. I like to listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks and youtube rants while painting.
  16. Golf clubs are here just to remind you about staying fit. Sitting and painting for long hours can put huge stress on your back, neck and heart.
