I took a risk today and photographed the studio as it is so far. The risk is that someone will call the paddy wagon, and I'll end up in one of those nifty sweaters that ties in the back. Livin' dangerously.
With a before photo to illustrate how far it's come, here's a tour of what's happened to what my spousal unit calls The Scary Room. (This has been his name for it the last four places we've lived. I wonder why?)
Even though it seems a mess right now, it's at least set up so I can start working soon. First it was a storage room while we got moved in--everything that didn't have a place yet got shoved in there. Then when it was (mostly) empty except for what would live there, it was the Painting Room, because we've done all our own finish work on the new house. I painted miles of trim here. 🙂
Now that there are work tables, I used my old doll show display screens to go vertical with storage and as a backstop for the paint/sculpt and the sewing tables. On the other side of the screens/tables are walls of storage, big windows, and the Willie-Cat's favorite sunny spot.
A Before photo, and then some (not quite ready) Afters.
Don't know where something goes? Throw it in here! We put one little twin bed in there, in case one of us snores the other out of the master bedroom. It sort of turned into the pets' daybed.
I hope y'all enjoyed the tour. Or at least weren't traumatized by it. I'll post again when I've got it entirely functional. As I need to turn some piles of fabric into curtains for the new house, I'm highly motivated to get this all sorted out!
