Spring Cleaning

Reactor-88 Workspace
So while most folks were enjoying the long weekend, somehow I got into a spring cleaning mode. Granted I did partake in a pool party/BBQ at my folk's house on Sat, but beyond that I was getting cleaned up and organized. It started with the desire to clean up the mountain of toy boxes that had taken over the space under my work/painting table. It had gotten so bad that I could not even sit in front of the table because there were so many boxes under there. Since about 50% of the toys I buy are for painting over, I ended up throwing out a lot of the boxes, but the rest I took down to the storage space (along with a bunch of other random things.) Once the bottom of the work table was cleared out, it was time to tackle the top. I can't remember the last time I was able to actually do any work on my work table- the mound of junk that had accumulated on top was a good foot high and completely covered it. While in the process of doing this, I got sidetracked a bit by cataloging some of my art and toy collection, but that's a whole other huge project that I'll have to tackle some other day(s). Once the top of my work table was finally clean, I jumped to the cupboard under my bookshelves (opposite of my work table) and the storage area under my bedroom TV- mainly because I need space in those areas to throw some of the junk that came off my work table. If you notice in the picture you can barely see my printer (on the left) sitting on top of a box on the floor- that has been that way since the X-mas '08. I plan to get either a small dresser or a printer/storage stand so I can get it up off the floor and get a little more storage space- that might be the task for the coming weekend. Anyway, now everything is nice and clean, uncluttered, organized and ready to go. Although I've gotten to really enjoy painting and doing my work out in my living room- hmm...

Looks pretty snazzy. For organization, I use a standard rolling tool box I picked up at Sears. It's perfect since I can easily move it around the room to go from work table to easel. Just a thought for you.
