Studio Needs Cheering Up

I'm so on my path to getting organized and changing up stuff around here. I have so many things to do to get myself to my ideal place. My ideal place is both physical and mental. I need the mental ability to see how I can change my physical space, and yet my physical space needs to be organized to allow for optimum mental clarity. Such a cycle...

Here is a picture of my bland studio basement (I just adore that big oil tank in the back - I should paint that some other color when I'm doing the walls - maybe just black - nice, clean black). I moved my production into this space about 3 years ago when we moved into this house. I personally worked out of an extra bedroom (office and glaze room) and just ran production here. And things have been so busy with the business and personal things going on (losing my mom to Leukemia and having a baby all in the same year) that I have not spent any time being "creative" in my basement studio space. And truthfully - when I really look at this space - it has only functioned to make stuff and store crap. It is very uninspirational.

But now that I have this new mission - this get stuff done - no more excuses and procrastination - I'm ready to get to work. Then my new work in porcelain can really take off. I'm working out ideas now, but plan on making my space a priority (right behind family, orders and show stock of course).
By October with the onset of Fall - I want this space made over! I've got about 4 things before it to do that are stepping stones for this to happen - and this makeover studio space is my push to get those other 4 things done as soon as possible...
Thanks Lisa (ZoaArt) and Jen (Jangles) for showing your studio space renovations - you are quite the inspiration!
