This will be kind of temporary though. As you can see we, have studs up, bare cement walls and cold floors. We are in the process of finishing the basement and currently waiting on the electrical to happen. I envision a lot of shelving and painted walls.
I hung a few of my paintings on the wall to help inspire me to do more paintings. The one on the far right is the first one I did sophmore year in high school, about 14 years ago. Wow, really ... did I just say that? The one next to it is the last one I worked on, probably seven years ago. The older I get, the faster time seems to move. I better start using the talents God gave me! I have a project to work on for one of my friends, so that will really help motivate me to paint.
Here's the view from the other direction. See all the wonderful organization...
This hutch belonged to my Grandma. She gave it to me when they moved out of their house and into an apartment. Grandma was a painter and all-around crafter so this hutch has some sentimental value to me. She painted up until arthritis got the best of her hands. She does a lot of sewing now with the programmable sewing machine. Grandma always seems to be busy with something — I think I take after her in that aspect — and we are both lefties.
