The Under Taker


My studio is nearly finished and quite an under taking. I mudded drywall, painted walls, put down new flooring, painted furniture and spent time being an interior decorator. I still have more to do yet, but I am loving my new studio space! It wasn't that long ago that things were still strung everywhere and the walls were just white! The furniture was put in the middle of the room and covered while we painted.

Things were all piled in the bedroom.

My stepson helped me put a floating floor in.

I am loving the new floor!

I have painted furniture white until I am blue in the face! As you can see here, I have another cabinet in the foreground to paint. I also plan to put up another shelf for over the doorway on the left.

This end of the room is a bit sparce. I have more cabinets that will go along the wall in the back and the wall on the right, I shall reserve as a design wall!

I have already set up to my sewing machine and sewed a bit. It feels so good to be able to sew again! Tomorrow, I shall start working painting more cabinets before I can store any more.

I would love to have so much space. I am trying to de-clutter my house and 'playroom' this school holiday. I have started tacling the packing case of fabric and wish I hadn't started. It is like a bottomless pit!
