"When we clear the physical clutter from our lives, we literally make way for inspiration...to enter." -Julia Cameron
The studio was made from closing in part of our barn. It is basically a closed in garage - no closets, just one big room. I love it but I haven't loved the look of things that need to be stored being out in the open. The clutter really interferes with my creativity.
I decided I needed a divider to hide the mess so I used my show wall. It is lightweight and easily moved.
I put tables in front of it to stabilize it. The divider hid the stuff in back but made my painting area feel cluttered too. I felt like it was finally time to add a closet so I asked Bruce for his input. As we talked it out, he made me realize all I really needed was a permanent wall that would allow me to organize my materials and supplies better.
With that plan, we got started. I cleared all the stuff out of the way and he started building the wall.
The framework went up quickly. Then the sheetrock and taping.
