An EDM member wanted to see our artspace, I really didn’t want to. My artspace isn’t as nice as alot I have seen but then I thought what the heck I need something to post anyway and she’s really nice. I like my space, I might as well admit to it. So, welcome to the bat cave. We bought this house a couple of years ago at a time when you didn’t get a bang for your buck or even a mild fizzle. Yep, at the height of real estate prices and a seller’s market. I saw a turtle sell his shell for $200,000 in 3 days. We had just sold a fairly large two-story house from back home and it was way too much for the three of us. Since I hate to clean, can’t afford a housekeeper, and my chick-a-dee will be going off to college in about 5 years I thought a smaller house was the only logical solution. And it is, but I still hate to clean!!!!!
We have a guest room, but the blue couch in my room folds out into another bed. The bookshelves are GREAT and it makes everything easy to find (If I put it back where it is suppose to go.) We will remodel this room, but it will be the last room we do. However, we do plan on mounting the TV on the wall, put new doors up (closet and entry) and getting a smaller desk. I am thinking about instead of getting a desk, getting a kitchen island on cassiters. That way I can move wherever the light is good or wherever the mood stikes me to go. We will have to put vinyl flooring in to protect the wood floor from paint. If we ever decide to sell the house I don’t want the floor to be ruined by paint splatters.

Sorry, one of the labels are wrong on my picture 2nd row pic.1: Watercolor is actually Drawing.
I have lots of ideas for this room, but I keep most of them under my hat. I don’t want to scare hubby to death. I don’t draw in here alot, but I do spend a lot of time in here. . . I am on the computer, I watch a little TV and I like to curl up with coffee and read in here when David’s not trying to use this as a storage room. But when my family is home I like to hang out with them so then my artspace becomes the bed, the living room or the kitchen.
The string you see hanging down is my ceiling fan cord and if you click on the bed picture and look in the bottom right you will see our dog with his head under the bed. Sam (the dog) usually puts his head and front paws way under the bed and his pack paws under the chest of drawers. Most times he gets stuck, and looks like a worm trying to get out. I would help, I mean I should and could, but it’s just too darn funny to watch. Well that’s the end of our tour.
