I wanted to take a minute and show you what I’ve been working on. I always appreciate seeing other peoples creative places, and now that I’ve gotten settled in my new house, I’d like to share mine with you.
Of course, my studio is located in the basement next to the furnace and near the cat box, but whatever. Jeff has his music studio upstairs in a light and airy room, (which he hardly uses), but I guess it comes down to who really wants to pay a piano mover to get a piano in the basement. All in all, I’m starting to enjoy my little space.
I am proud of the transformation I’ve made in this dank little room and I actually think it’s somewhat convenient, it’s located right next to the beer fridge and a bathroom. Who could ask for more?
I set the desk up in an “L” shaped arrangement. I also included a space for my friend Colz for when she comes over to cluck it up with me henhouse stylez. The good thing about a basement is the open ceilings. It’s easy to weave cords in and out of the cross beams, I was able to hang $10 Ikea lights to illuminate our workspaces.
For inspiration I hung a piece of yarn across two hooks on the wall and hung our most recent work. I also painted this one wall blue (leftover paint from Elsa’s room, which I adore) to try and make it feel like a real room and not a basement.
This is currently used as The Henhouse Press’ shipping department. Inventory, packing and mailers all in one tidy spot.
I’ve had this book shelf for about 6 years now. It was first purchased to serve as a room divider in our first house, a 1000 sq foot one-room loft. It used to hold all of our records and books, and then last year when we moved to our rental house it served as a toy/book shelf in Finn’s room, and now, it finally makes it’s home in my basement organizing all of my supplies.
