Hello! I have an extra room in the basement that I may be able to use as a craft room. I'm not really sure what to do with it though. I don't know where to start! So, I'm asking you craftsters for some help and opinions. It's an old house that we're renting so I'm not sure if I can't paint or tear things down. Here's the lot of pictures:
^View from the door
^Left side of the room with the cabinets. (Kind of old, beat up, and cobwebby, but whatever.)
^Area right next to the door, to the left of the cabinets. It's under the stairs.
^Wall to the right of the cabinets.
^Right side of the room with the heater/furnace thing.
^And remember the door in the first picture? It was an old shaft/area type thing where they stored coal and such. Here's the left side of it...
^And the right side of it. Full of boxes. It's a bit blurry, sorry.
^This is a quick floor plan of the room that I made in Photoshop and Paint. Where the lines are on the walls, that's a door.
AREA 1: The area under the stairs.
AREA 2: The cabinets.
AREA 3: "Unusable" furnace/heater area. Unusable: That means that I can't really do much over there. x)
AREA 4: The old coal shaft. =3
So that's it. That's my buttload of pictures. Think you can help me? If you like you can simply save the Paint/Photoshop picture I made and edit it, using basic shapes to represent things. I dunno, but I'd love some help and ideas as to what to do with this space. Thanks for taking the time to help and look trhough the pics. ^^
EDIT: Excuse the mess! ^^ It's being used as storage right now.
