My Special Workplace

As promised, I am posting pictures of my studio/workspace. I am fortunate in that I have a spare bedroom that I was able to turn into an area that is just for me. I love it because I designed it knowing I needed plenty of desk room. I bought 2 black nightstands from Target (each has one drawer and one cupboard) to use as my base. My husband installed the countertop that we purchased from Home Depot which gives me 8 feet of workspace.
I also bought 2 black bookcases from Walmart to use as storage for all my dishtiles, books, gems, rocks, etc. I could really use another one as these are jammed, but don't know where I would put it as my closet space is taken up with steel racks that hold my finished mosaics.
The file cabinet on the right was an old oak one we've had for years. I painted it black and ivory to better fit into my colorscheme.
As you can see I have lots of momentos in my room such as my "I Love Lucy" collection and various pictures of my kids. I also buy little things and put them around for inspiration.
