I have had a “room of my own” but it has been full of furniture intended for other purposes and in a room that used to be a small dining room. Last winter I bought a Cheap Joe’s taboret and I love it. It is robust and the drawers slide so easy. It inspired me to buy some attractive boxes to organize my art materials – one for watercolor, one for drawing, one for acrylics and one for all the other stuff. One thing let to another and I recently asked my daughters and husband for gift cards from Cheap Joe’s so I could get the matching drawing table. It arrived last Friday and I spent the weekend organizing and sorting and throwing out. I love the table and have painted my first painting on it (which I will post tomorrow). I thought I would show you “Linda’s Room” at the Halcomb house. I even hung some of my own art along side that of Monet. I love seeing other artist’s work space and feel really lucky (after having spent 30 years painting on a kitchen table off and on) to have this space. I hope some of you will share your space as well.
This photo shows the small dining table that I use for a desk. Also the firewood holder that my brother made and I now use to hold my large pads, drawing boards and sheets of paper. You can just see a 4 pound toy Pomeranian furball behind the music stand I use as a “living with it” easel.
For this photo I’m standing where the music stand is. I’m going to put a small table with a plant or lamp or a small light weight rolling cart with drawers between the chairs. Love my Monet! Especially in the winter!
Here is my taboret and table. I love them! This was taken before I inaugurated the drawing table. You can see a couple of the four bookcases in the room. I have sixteen bookcases total and I think that’s why we never discuss moving.
