My Art Room Gets a New Look!

Five years of creating in the same room had turned my little art studio into a big art mess and a pack rat den.  Here are some before and after photos of a much needed purge. Many of items were recycled. Lots of stuff went into storage.  The dark blue walls got three coats of cheerful paint. Dark green carpet was swapped for a smaller rug.  Most of the facelift was free! I invested money into some paint and the rest was just time and energy to sort through years of art stuff!!

I am thrilled with the transformation. It is amazing how clutter can slow you down drastically.  I have spent lots of time sitting peacefully and creating in my new space!!!  Yippee!

OMG! What an amazing transformation. I couldn't even tell there were fabulous windows before. I'm sure you'll have lots of peaceful fun creating in there now.

Looks so bright and airy now! De-cluttering can calm the soul. Great job!

Fantastic transformation! I've got to declutter my studio, too. And I think your post just gave me the final nudge. Don't know if I'll be brave enough to post before photos, though. :)

WOW!! What an amazing re-do! You have inspired me to (once again) go into my tiny studio space and make room to move. It's crazy how fast it all piles up.

What a difference! Amazing job~
Inspiration to do just that organizing my space. What a difference when you change the flooring too~ Happy creating.
