As you probably already know, I am a Life Coach. Several weeks ago, I was in a training triad (a small group that practices a modality in life coaching) on procrastination. Those who were in my triad gave me a challenge when I told them I had been ducking this work for years. It was a challenge to clean up my art studio. I took up their urge, and even though it took well over a month to complete it, I finally got the art studio cleaned and arranged.
The project was no small undertaking. Everything had to come out of the room. A large amount of sorting had to take place with about a third of the contents and half the furniture planned for donations to the local GoodWill. It had to go away to make a space for those things I was keeping. If this sounds like over-exaggeration, please take a look at the pictures below.
Once the room became empty, I made a do-it-yourself craft island out of a 5-tier shelving unit I purchased for $69. The top was pieced together out of bits of wood and other material I had on hand. I then slowly sorted out what could come back and what had to go. Much Of the room’s contents went to Goodwill.
Although I could not freely shop for what I wanted because of the COVID-19 virus, I was able to fashion What I needed from what I had around the house. Everything slowly came together until I ended up with a room that I could work in, and could store what I needed to store within it. The Art Room now looks as you see below.
I sincerely thank my study partners and instructor for giving me this challenge. It helped me to get out of a rut and accomplish something that I had wanted to do for years. I believe I owe them a debt; and, I am not sure I can ever correctly repay it. Although anywhere I can find a way to do so, I definitely shall.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again
