Once we got in and got settled, I noticed how amazing having this extra piece of furniture helped. Our other desk is in the dining room serving as the "opening mail and important documents" area. My painting stuff can stay out and available with all the extra space. This is clutch, especially when the desire hits me to paint... I can just pick up a brush/canvas and go instead of having to set everything up and get ready for 15 mins trying to find something.
It's not super glamourous or pretty looking but this room serves a FUNCTION. And that function is "Getting Shit Done." And yes, as you'll notice in the first picture that I still hang up different color shirts for use as a background in my still life paintings... ghetto? yes. FUNCTIONAL? absolutely.
