Since my stepson has refused to come on the weekends, we're too boring, don't take him out to eat, watch movies, roller skate, bowl, something every weekend he comes, I turned what was his room into my studio/guest room.
But, I keep trying to convince my DH that I "need" a separate building for a studio. I want more space. Right now I have a drawing table, easel, several drawers, and boxes that hold painting/drawing/craft stuff, and a pottery wheel, several buckets of clay and clay shelves in my "studio. It is rather cramped, and the DH hates messes. I keep trying to convince him if I had a sperate studio I could be out of the house and he wouldn't see the mess.
I actually have some money that I could buy a Lowes double decker back yard shed, and put in insulation, more windows, electricity and water, but I am holding off. DH doesn't really want me to do it, and with the economy the way it is....
So for now it's a guest room studio for me.
