Art Room Overhaul

I had some new windows installed this week, and so that the window chaps had room to work, some furniture had to be moved.
Arrrgh look at the dirt that was revealed! So of course when the workmen had finished, a form of frantic spring cleaning began. 
The worst was my Art Room. And I have so much Art Stuff scattered about, so it was time for a general tidying up.  And this is just a small portion of the Art Stuff. There's more on the floor in the next room.


I rearranged the table and the computer desk, sorted the Art Stuff into bins, all used paper to the recycling box, pens in one container, pencils in another. Paint brushes stowed away where I can find them. Records of sold paintings all filed in a binder. Artist quality acrylic paint in one bin, cheap Walmart grade paint in another. A lino cut bin. A gelli print bin. A watercolour paint and paper bin. And another bin for sketch books.
It looks great! I am so pleased with myself!

  1. It looks great - and of course you are pleased with yourself.
    Isn't it horrendous when something (and it is often the appearance of tradesmen) makes you realise just how filthy parts of your home is. Last time the fridge repairman came I wanted to hide...

  2. there is nothing like a fresh start...
    I hate doing it but am so, so happy when it's finished.
    Your room will be so nice to work in now.
    Enjoy your windows too.
    We had a nice quiet stay at home "celebration". I pitted and sliced over 300 plums to get ready to make some no cook jam...Think I will do it later today..too hot right now to do much of anything.

  5. It's good to get things done, but I am not very good at getting to that point.

    1. It takes determination and perseverance. Procrastination is so much easier!

  6. I am quite convinced that from time to time we all some event like windows being replaced or hardwood flooring being installed to compel us to undertake that long overdue cleaning. Thank goodness it only happens once in a while!

  7. I find arty things among the hardest to sort out and organize, so you did well. I haven't painted anything for a few years now, but I still have all my bits and pieces so hopefully one day I might get started again.
