Sneak Peek At The Studio

The Studio is just about done! I've been planning out where I'm putting things and finishing the painting.

I'm happy to say I did get all the trim painted and the floor is all stained!

Bruce and our neighbor moved the lockers into the studio for me. I cleaned them up then Bruce reattached the side that was loose. The patina on these are great!

One side has turquoise paint under the red

 And the other side has yellow

There were 3-4 of these tables left at the farm that we found in the barn and shop. I snagged one to use in the studio. It will hold my palette next to the easel. It's the perfect height and size.

 This one needed a new top so Bruce cut one out of a scrap of plywood. I still need to sand it. The chippy paint is perfection!

I'll be moving this shelf unit and this small drafting table from the city house. (Sorry about the bad pictures - they are from 4 years ago). They will be getting a makeover!

After reading this post, I had a great idea for using one of my crib pieces.

Can't wait to see if it will actually work.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Then I actually came up with a brilliant idea for the other 2 rails! Even Bruce was impressed! I'll share more of that at a later date.

It's so fun to finally be at this stage. Soon I'll be blissfully painting and creating  in my beautiful, light-filled studio!

  10. Cecilia,
    Everything is coming together so perfectly, so much detail and inspiration. I love seeing your dream come true!

  11. That green patina is so chippy perfect! It would be so wonderful to have a room to myself in which to create anything I wanted. I'll be following along with you and cheering your progress.

    1. Thank you! I painted my first piece of furniture in there today! So nice I didn't have to worry about paint on the floor or moving things, etc. Whoopie! This is going to be great!
