I spent some time this weekend putting together a new space in the living room. I couldn't handle everything being scattered everywhere - it was driving me insane. here's what it looked like before I started...
all of the tupperware boxes are full of supplies that I packed before I started putting together a space for the little guy - it was all the "overflow" from when I cleaned out my studio...
I've been dragging stuff downstairs for days now. still have some things I want
to bring down, but... it's a start, right? lol...
it's definitely far from aesthetically-pleasing,
which is really hard for my ocd personality, but... here's to hoping it
our downstairs is unfinished - it's actually partially gutted...
advantage to that? I can spill as much paint/ink down here and make as big of a mess as
I want w/o getting into trouble, atleast in theory. lol... the biggest disadvantage is that everything, more or less, needs to be kept in plastic or some other type of
closed container because of how much dust is down here w/ the remodeling...
we won't even get into how many times I've vacuumed
over here already - I put a 6x8 rug down and dh stapled it to the unfinished
wood floor, so... the dogs are all for it... I still have to get another curtain
rod and put the other black curtain up, but it definitely looks better than the
plastic. now, how often am I going to have to dust? lmao...
basically, I now have an l-shaped scrap space w/ approx. 12ft. of workspace. go me! the
overall dimensions of this corner are left side - 8ft. and right side - 11.5 ft.
the left side will, more than likely, end up being "clean work" - sewing and
the right side will be "messy work" - mixed media & art journaling and,
ofcourse, the small table for plife.
here's to hoping this corner isn't
too terribly difficult to keep clean.
have you scrapped in an unfinished space? leave me a comment and tell me about it!
have a great week!
