As my studio is a shared space with Bob's man cave, I had to come up with a way of hiding the man cave mess. I thought cupboards would suit Bob better than shelving to hold all his stuff. You can shut the door on cupboards and not see the disarray. I took over the whole organisation of his space much to Bob's horror hehehe. I sorted all his stuff so it is now easy to find everything. I put all the painting gear together and all the plumbing and welding stuff all have their own space. The power tools are all together etc. etc. Bob had to admit he liked it. I have put a lot of time and effort into this and it still wasn't quite right. I decided I had to make a clear division between the spaces. I plan to have open studio during the SALA Festival next year and didn't want the studio to look like a corner in a man's shed. I ended up buying some old wardrobes which I not only used to create a wall but it also gave Bob more storage space.
my space as you first walk in the door
in the distance is my desk
walk around the shelves towards the desk and this is the lounge area
the lounge area showing off my new 'wall'
beyond the wall is the man cave
the lounge area showing one doorway into the man cave
the back of wardrobes painted make a good wall to hang artwork
that's my desk looking from the lounge area
and back around to the door that leads into the garden
I still have the yard in front of the shed to clean up. That's where I have put all the things that I decided to throw out. That is my next mission.
