my little corner of the world




when i was looking to buy a house in florida one of the things on my house check list was a walk in master closet. i never had one and i thought it would be kind of like a little luxury.

when i moved in to the house i quickly realized storage space comes at a minimum and i was so happy with my walk in closet.  but as time went on and i started bringing art supplies to the new house i had to figure out a place to make an art room.
  
after having a walk in closet, it turned out it wasn't really a big deal for me.  as a matter of fact, it was just a big closet and i had such few clothes that it seemed like a waste of space.

that's when i decided i wanted to put my art room in the master walk in closet.  many people tried to talk me out of it, and to this day, a lot of people are still encouraging me to make the spare bedroom into my art space, but overall i am quite content being in the closet.  even though this space is really tiny i honestly have to say i love the fact that it's a place to go that is all my own.  

nothing in my house is ever messy, except my art room.  i use so many supplies to work that i have things every where.  eventually i get sick of spending so much time searching for things that i get motivated to clear the clutter and clean up.

so, i just spent two days reorganzing things.  i am always hopeful after i spend so much time cleaning and putting every thing in its proper place that i will keep it this way.  i've yet to do this succesfully, but this time could be different.  change is always possible and so my hopeful state continues.

  4. I hope you manage to keep it organised Roc, but I'm not going to hold my breath as I've muttered the same thing to myself many times!!
    I love that everything is within easy reach xx

  5. I could definitely make art in there! It's so snug and cozy, like an arty cave, and looks very well organized (for now lol). Add a fan for summer and you're good. I've worked in worse spaces for sure.
    And I have the same 'use-it-all-clean-it-up-later' thing going, as do probably a majority of mixed media artists out there in bloglandia.

  8. Love your art space. It looks wonderful and cozy. I also have a walk in closet. One side is for my clothes, the other side is storage for all of my art supplies. I have thought about turning into a art room. Now I have an idea of how it would look. Thanks for sharing.
