Look!: Art Nook

There's a small corner nook in our sun room, which had been stumping us for some time as to how we should use it. For a while, it was dead space holding a school desk we scored in a garage sale. Then it occurred to us -- why not make it a cozy art space that is perfect for our son. A little semi-private spot to call his own.

In the nook, a small desk, two chairs and all of his art supplies fit perfectly. We added a couple trays to hold his notebooks and paper scraps, a tiny shelf for storage, a small bucket for his pencils and paint brushes and he was all set.

We love the way the space is now being utilized and appreciated. Everything in its place, a place for everything and all that jazz.
