Yesterday and today I have been busy – not with art, or crochet, but re-organising my home to create a work space.
I don’t have anywhere that I can paint or draw in my home. Our spare room is my husband’s study as he works from home regularly – so no dusty art stuff in there. We had a dining room that we converted into a playroom for our daughter a number of years ago and it slowly deteriorated into a storage room as it doesn’t have good light (there is a carport over the window) and the ceiling light was atrocious.
I decided before these school holidays that I needed to sort the room out and get a table in there so I can have somewhere to work, or for my daughter to play – or so we can create together. We have one week left before she returns to school – it was time to get my finger out.
We had the ceiling fan/light replaced a couple of months ago and the amount of light in that room now is fantastic – funny how all it took was a phone call for an electrician to fix that problem! Only took me…how many years? lol
Three half-days later and I have a workable space, easily accessible storage of my art supplies, a very full garbage bin, somewhere to store my art books so I can actually find them and space for my daughter’s toys (or at least some of them as she has outgrown quite a bit of it now and is just unwilling to part with them).
K. has already christened the art table tonight, making a chalk drawing of a snowman to enter in the local Show.
No photos yet, everything is not quite done, but I’ll share some once I’m finally set-up.
