|Here is where the painting happens.|
|Tackle box doubles as a place to keep my paints and brushes. I've had this since high school.|
|A small sampling of pastels.|
|I love re-purposing spaghetti sauce jars and aluminum cans for art storage.|
So I know what you're thinking.....basement = dark, damp, and cold.
Yes, it can be cold, but I have a great space heater to utilize if need be.
It's not dark because we installed a nice fluorescent overhead light.
I do have to share the space with our black lab, Sota. But I'm okay with that and I don't think she minds the company.
My new area is still a work in progress as I will continue to organize and reorganize to get things exactly where they need to be. Once I begin painting in my new space I'll be able to iron out the kinks. It may not be as pretty as some of the studios I've seen, but it will serve the purpose for now.
Ultimately I would love to have a separate space to call my own. My husband has an entire shed dedicated to his mower, quad, and lawn tools.....why can't I have a shed to turn into an art studio?
I'm always looking for creative ways to organize my art supplies. What unique storage solutions have you discovered?
