Painting has begun in my new Studio! My old Studio (shown below) is currently in a small bedroom and it's bursting at the seams, literally. Here are a few pictures of it; this is when it's clean. You should see it after I have been working on projects. Yikes! It's a scary site. Can you picture an explosion!
This is my beading area. As you can see, the area where a chair should go is used for storage.
Absolutely no more space in the closet. I have the same wire racks completely covering the back of the door to the room and it's just as full.
This is the area where I work on my computer....where I write the instructions to all my Plaid projects. NOT my favorite part :( Also where I write most of my blog posts :)
However, right now, I'm sitting in a cute little coffee house in Charlotte NC writing this post. My hubby had a business trip and I like to tag along when I can. I told myself as long as I got my new Studio room (keep scrolling down) painted on Monday, I would be able to travel with him...and I love road trips. Yes, I brought my beads and made a necklace and earring set on our drive up this morning.
This is the table where I create. I love sit facing the window where I can enjoy the sunlight pouring in and the views into the woods. In the winter I can actually see the creek from this window.

Now that I've showed you my old studio, let me give you a peek of the room that is soon to be my new studio....
This is our guest room in the basement. I have mixed feelings about taking over this space since this is the room where our family stays when they visit. I actually have a different idea of where to relocate the guest room. No, not in my old studio, but I'll show you when I get to that part of the transformation. I'll use my old studio as an office and beading and sewing room. All my paints and mixed media supplies are moving here to my new studio. I think that will help me focus on doing more of what my heart loves, painting! I tend to get so distracted with so many options at my fingertips. I think keeping them sepetate will help me. We'll see.
There is a bathroom through that door on the left. Perfect for washing my paint brushes!
The closet is on the right. I think I'll leave the door off and put a bookshelf in there. Maybe.
I'm so excited about this room! There are 4 large windows and two of them face the woods where I'll be able to see the creek. I just LOVE it!! It's going to be perfect.
This was me yesterday. Yea! I finished painting the bedroom. It's now a cool misty aqua color. It already looks so different, so fresh. I still need to paint the bathroom, then I'm going to build a shelf to hold all my paints...and make curtains, etc. I'll be back in a few days to give you an update on my progress! This is going to be so much fun!
Now, off to another art gallery or museum (that's what I do when my hubby's in meetings) then he'll pick me up and we'll go have dinner somewhere in Charlotte.
