Studio Unveiling!

So here’s the unveiling of the studio!  It’s not totally where I want it…. it still needs a few things done, and some tweaking in terms of organizing things etc.  But here’s photos!

My main work area: (My name is from the paper letters I made for my art show…. I still need to clean up under the desk, and replace my seat cushion, and recover my cork boards for the empty wall space.  I’m trying to get away from the chaos of tacking all the stuff up on the wall….

The shelves to the left (and you can see Bear’s workstation there…)

The shelves to the right: (The bottom two are Lindsay’s….)

And, the pink filing cabinet.  L said she saw a pink one at staples, and when we went, it was no longer there, so I bought a boring grey one and painted it!  also painted my recycled work table, which mostly holds my sewing machine. Orange!

There we go!  Almost perfect!!  I’m so lucky to have this space!

A New Studio!

So last week, I painted my studio.  Brad kept telling me he was “scared,” but I even got him to admit he liked it.  Just to tease you, here’s the before and during pictures.  Ha ha. (More to come after I clean up and get it just PERFECT!)

Here’s the before pictures: Just after school let out and before renovation- both mine and Lindsay’s school stuff just got dumped anywhere there was space…. eek.  Her desk is the one with the iron and the red chair… and Bear’s work station (or he thinks it is, anyway) is the green desk in the back.

Here you can see: Lindsay’s cheese costume, my polyester “Microphili,” badly organized bookshelf and some large tubes of cardboard… one’s mine and one’s Lindsay’s… what we have them for, I don’t know….

Here’s the during picture.  If you look closely (as in, through the mess) you can see a peek of what I’ve been doing…. This is a good portion of my supplies… stacked up in the entertainment center wall, which I did not paint.

And here’s the sneak peek detail shot.  I love rosebowls.  They’re cheap, transparent, so you can see what’s in them, and fun.

As you might be able to tell, I’ve been busy.  I finally feel like, while the space is shared, at least for now, I’ve made it my own.  The only thing I don’t like is that it gets a little chilly down here…..  but other than that, I love my not-quite-new-but-sure-feels-like-it studio!
