A peak at my “studio”…



The moment I saw the basement workshop in our new home I knew that this house was for us.  I immediately had visions of what I wanted it to become.  A comfortable work space for myself…MYSELF….did you catch that?  That would be Me, Myself and I!  We have 3 acres, a 2 car garage, a basement rec room, and the boys have HUGE bedrooms.  So there is really no reason for anyone to be in MY space!

Almost 3 months later here is the reality of the situation…..


This is the nook that I have planned for my office or an area to photograph pieces of furniture in.  I’ve tried throwing those plants away several times and somehow they end up back inside….


Apparently this chair is a great place for BB guns and Airsoft pistols.


Here is my fabulous super long work bench!  Yep….its a complete unorganized mess!!  I can’t find anything when I need it…but that is how I operate….in complete chaos.  I had visions of all that pegboard….that it would be all perfectly organized with all my “stuff” and I would just get what I need and put it back when I was done!


Kinda like this!


And check all this stuff out…Its the entire contents of our RV that has landed in MY SPACE!!

So, if I need to BBQ up some lunch, or sit in a reclining outdoor chair I’m all set!


I mostly don’t eat though when I work….I just get so busy…I live on Cliff Bars and trail mix….and wrappers are always scattered about!


A girl can still dream!  I do have visions and plans for this space!

    Wow! You had me drooling at that first picture! THAT is the studio of my dreams. Some day, right? Don’t be so hard on yourself – you’ve only been there three months! You have been busy with the rest of the house – you’ll get it done. I’m sure it’s frustrating but you have a wonderful space and it will be beautiful and functional, I’m sure. Looking forward to seeing what you actually do with that space. We have an awesome basement that I could make into a studio but haven’t and we’ve been here 35 years! For some reason I always thought my garage attic would be a better place for mine but the downstairs is probably more realistic, it is a walkout with a huge window (faces east so kind of dark after the sun swings around) and it has a hookup for a wood or gas stove. Hmmm….. you’ve got me thinking! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Please keep us updated. Your basement looks a lot like mine and I can’t figure out how to make it functional.

    I love your mess. I used to say I operated in “organized clutter” but in reality it’s a chaotic mess. Seeing a fellow artist work this way is refreshimg!
