This is an exciting day!
after a ton of hard work,
I can finally say,
Well, everything except my studio easel which is currently in FL at my mother-in-law's house. It will happily travel back home to Atlanta with us next month after our family visit in FL.
We moved my studio from the small bedroom upstairs down to the more spacious bedroom in our basement. Click here to see what the space used to look like.
Now, enjoy these pictures of my new space...YEA!!
The bathroom is located behind the door on the right. Aww! water to wash my brushes. Maybe I'll take better care of them now? Before, they would sit in water way too long...
The closet is behind the doors on the right is loaded with lots of supplies!
My easel will sit in the corner area between the two windows. I have a large piece of heavy canvas to lay under it to protect the carpet from paint spills and splatters that are bound to happen :)
I added two sets of small eye hooks into the side of the window moldings then strung some picture hanging wire across to create a place to hang my inspiration images and ideas. Before, they always ended up in a pile of papers and were eventually forgotten. No more, now they'll be in plain sight.
My corner to sit, relax, and pour over my magazines and books. A great place for my quiet time too!
I am so blessed to have this awesome space and a wonderful and supportive hubby who has been such a trouper through this whole project. I had no idea just how much time and work it was going to take when I first began.
Some of the projects I tackled in the last few weeks:
- painted the entire room and bathroom
- moved loads of stuff two stories down
- built a custom shelf to hold some of my paints
- painted and distressed 7 pieces of furniture (and then Mod Podged 3 of them)
- upholstered 3 chairs
- made curtains
- organized everything
....hmmm, I'm sure I'm forgetting something!
My goal was to finish before today because my hubby and I will be out of town all week, in KY, then back home for a short time before we head to FL, then CA, then FL again, and finally back home to GA. Whew! And after all of that, I'll be more than ready to pick up my paint brush! My journal will be bursting with ideas by that time, I'm sure :)
