Loving the Studio Facelift! – Before & After Photos.

Brushes!I’ve been busy “spring” cleaning…(for three months.) Actually, I’m doubtful that spring actually is coming to the mountains, this year. The first room in the house to be finished…is the studio!

With a bit of elbow grease, help from the family, a new chair and two trips to IKEA, we were able to “containerize” and set up a space that serves as a multi-purpose area for creativity. Here, I meet clients, paint, research, do my office work and film-editing.

Total budget for the facelift, which included the new purchases of baskets, shelving, magazine and CD containers, candles, copper floral buckets (for brushes), material for skirting the tables and desks, and a lovely new reading chair?
$1,872.00

Loving my creative space with the family and FINDING stuff?
Priceless!

New works are on their way.
