2 days ago my WYNN modern art. sanctuary (aka room I paint in) looked like a bomb hit.
I’m a bit private but decided to make my space public in this blog. I don’t let students in this room, and only 2 people have seen it.
But! It was a nightmare so I took a full day to completely pull everything out and only put back what I needed.
That’s my big tip.
- Don’t organize what’s in there. Pull everything out and ONLY bring back in what’s absolutely necessary
Before bringing anything back in ask 2 questions, do I really need it nearby and if so, how many do I need
Get a simple caddy/organizer to keep the most important items on the table. (Ie cups, scissors, stir sticks, etc)
For my plastic table cover I use either dollar tree plastic table cloths for parties or 3M Painters film (or both!)
I can’t wait to get back and paint and hang some art! I have lots of wall space to hang art.
- Only hang the art you find most inspiring and uplifting. Not the pieces you can’t stand.
Make your room smell nice and if you’re like me and love water, add a little water feature.
I can’t wait to turn mine back on again! 💧
And my last tip! See those gorgeous extremely expensive tall craft tables? I got both from the classifieds section in the same day!! I love the company that makes them and happened to find 2 of the same ones!
Keep your eyes open for great deals!
My tables are from IKEA (there’s 3 pictures) and I purchased the extendable legs so I could have a taller art space.
The white chair was from a furniture liquidation warehouse and the stool from overstock.com
My plastic buckets for mixed paints and powders come from Amazon
