Art and Jewelry Building

A few years ago my art room was turned into a music room for my husband and my art area moved into the dining room.  After my second child was born I decided to pack my art stuff up and put it in the laundry room and made a small sewing space in my bedroom.  I miss my art space, and now with my kiln I really need a space dedicated just for art and jewelry making.  So when hubby's friend offered his building for sale we jumped at the opportunity.  It's a tiny 8x8 building, but it is wired and has an ac unit.  It should be just what I need for making my jewelry and storing most of my supplies (except for my paint, Sculpey, and other items that might be damaged by the temperature variance).  Here it is in our friend's yard, ready to be moved to my place.

She'll have to be moved and painted.  I'm thinking off white with a red door to match the house, then I can do whatever I want inside (which will mean lots of teal, turquoise, hot pink, and citron).  The building is set to be moved Tuesday, and I will keep you guys posted on how the move goes.


Update - GreenCraft and Art Space!!!!

This month I have an article featured in GreenCraft magazine Summer 2014!  It's all about how to make hanging file folders from old book covers.  

Here's a shot I took on my own of these folders.

I also have a wonderful surprise coming my way - an 8' x 8' wooden shed all for my art!  I'll be moving some of my furniture in there and a lot of art and decor, like the pieces you see below.  See that little teal owl with citron eyes?  I found that little guy in a thrift store several years ago and he has been responsible for the crazy color combination you see here.  Thanks little owl!  I can't wait to spread my wings in this little room.  

When the ground dries a bit we will have it moved out.  Then I want to paint it white on the inside like the following rooms.

And I am thinking about doing the floors gray with a white stencil on top.  I can't wait for my building, my art is scattered around the house and I makes my brain feel so scattered!  Maybe I can get it together if I get my art in one place!
