A New Creative Space

I've recently been in the very fortunate position of having a huge room at my parents house (actually my wee brother's old room) where I can spread out all of my arting and materials and do my work in. However, my mum is reclaiming the space as another spare room is needed for the guests coming to my sister's wedding in August. I've had this in the back of my mind for the past year so have never fully organised the room and haven't spent much time making it into a nice homey workspace knowing I'd be moving out anyway. So here's a little glimpse of my room as it is - its not pretty and I'm not particularly proud of it but its done the job......

SO....fortunately we live in a big old farm house and have a little playroom 'up-the-backstairs' where we spent countless hours as children playing dress-up, Sylvanian Families and listening to LW Radio Atlantic 252 (remember that?)! I love this wee room and have always dreamt of converting it into my studio and now its finally happening!

HOWEVER, this room is also a shambles with decades of the junk, treasures, toys & memories of a family of six accumulating and never really being tackled....until now. This is the 'playroom' as it is.....

Up the backstairs.....

Look at my lovely view of the woods!

Narnia is a crumbling wall.

Needless to say I've got my work cut out for me! I'm waiting for the plasterer to come and fix my walls before I can paint then start moving in! Watch this creative space!

  1. Our playroom looks amazing in these photos! I think I never realised what a great room it was - probably because you couldn't see it for all the junk! Can't wait to see what you do with it. Can I come and play when it's finished?
