Wow, been a while! I’ve been busy with the brushes, if lazy about posting. I’ll try to make up for that with a few looks back at the last few months.
Most importantly, July turned into renovation month as I transformed my studio space top to bottom. I’m really happy with how things came out, even if I have a few weekend projects left to really finalize the project.
I devoted a ton of hours to this effort, taking three weeks off of mini painting to make every hour afterward more rewarding.
I don’t have any true ‘before’ pictures, as I began this project thinking it was just a bit of cleaning and tidying up. Little did I know!
Newly painted steps welcome my guests, and me, to my third floor treehouse.
Cassie gained a nice spacious, bright play area. Including her in my hobby, and me in her fun, was a driving factor in my design and enthusiasm for this project. I want my daughter to feel welcome and have lots of reasons to want to join me in this creative space.
A new floor helped update a very tired attic. Under some linoleum I found newspapers from 1963! Fresh paint added a ton of light.
I created a dedicated, safe, and clean airbrush station. I need to keep the air clean with my little stinkbug running around.
Who needs a pile of shame? I have a shelf of opportunity!
My tea station is within reach of my painting chair. I think I’ve succeeded in making my space as functional as it is inviting. Everything I need for my hobby is handy, but it doesn’t feel cluttered at all.
My work desk reflects this balance, too. I’ve added objects, colors, scents, and sounds that inspire, calm, and focus me to the area where I spend the most time and devote the bulk of my creative energy.
I’m super excited to wear this new place in. I know I’ll spend many happy hours here, both alone and with my daughter. It’s already filling me with the desire to create something new!
