i am so times infinity impressed. i especially like the paint buckets. and converting the closet into a lizard habitat is a great idea- i bet it would work well for birds, too. i would suggest using a fan too when you use stinky stuff- unless you seal his habitat, the stuff will get in there for sure.
maybe one day i will have such a fabulous crafty room.
Awe...thanks so much!
I like the paint cans because they aren't expected. I have a tabletop lamp that I think I'm going to hang from the ceiling in the one corner. It's obviously not meant to be hung from the ceiling, but I think it will look neat! It will be above where the tissue paper rack is. I used to have a tall floor lamp there, but I don't want anything else on the floor than already is in there. I'll start to feel cramped!
I open the window & use a fan there when I'm doing stinky stuff. The room is always pretty hot because of his heat lamps, so opening the window a bit doesn't even phase the temp.
I heard him sneeze once (SO cute!) and I knew it was time to vent the room out more...heh.
Here's photos of the inside...we have a smaller guy in there now. We did the cage a few years ago. I painted the back wall and we did the ladder, shelving, doors (they used to be louvered), lighting in the ceiling, etc.
The room was a nursery previously.. I had Winnie the Pooh murals painted on the walls.
I'm headed out, but I'll post pix when I get home. It was VERY different!
