    I can't find it, but there is a really old Hometalk post of a completely white basement room that the homeowner was using to paint. He (or she, I can't remember) said he really likes painting against the white background because it doesn't affect his perception of the colors on the canvas.

    can you post a pic? My sweetie commandeered a good sized portion of our master bedroom for her crafting space. She works with natural materials in some "miniature " scale. I would recommend yoo pay attention to three areas. Lighting Storage Floor protection We have average sized windows and have moderate levels of illumination. Her detail work is supplemented with an articulating florescent desk lamp ...which works for her. Painters like to use more natural spectrum light. our storage needs are meet with 6 foot high metal shelving unit. http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=100655787&storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&ci_sku=100655787&ci_kw=%7bkeyword%7d&kwd=%7bkeyword%7d&cm_mmc=shopping-_-googleads-_-pla-_-100655787&ci_gpa=pla#.UJaPdm_BFJs Our floor in our master is Jatoba a dark hardwood finished with a simple linseed oil finish. it can be spot refinsihed easily. She tends to spill glue and paints and other such things.

    I have searched, and can't find the post about the all-white painting room, but there are a lot of posts on Hometalk, and I must not be using the right search terms. Anyhow, you get the idea. It was all very white. The floors were either painted white or were a white linoleum of some kind, I can't remember.
