Here are some pictures of the space before we start.
Sam has some interesting ideas for the windows in the door. The idea is to give visitors a glimpse into the room, but I don't want to feel like I'm at the zoo.
To the right, you see another sink, and that one has hot water. I can switch the faucets and MAYBE get hot water piped over to the wide sink, I'll have to figure it out. You may also take note of the cabinets, which have doors in less than perfect shape. The upper doors are ok, the bottom, not so much. Ikea has inexpensive doors ($7) and hinges that I think I can use to replace them. My plan is to store dye supplies and tools, as well as other surface design materials in the cabinets on the bottom. Not sure what goes on top, as I can't really reach them anyway.
The floor at the back 30 feet of the studio is really crappy. It's the old wood factory floor. It's a bit rough, and has places for pencils and things to fall between the boards. (they won't fall down to the second floor, there is a floor beneath it) I will cover some of it with the rugs I have, but I'm looking for a solution for the space, which is about 15x30 feet. It needs to be something I can easily remove without damaging that floor further, and inexpensive. The floor in the foreground is fine, it just needs to be cleaned.
I paid $5 for this table at the Restore shop in Omaha. It was a white patio table, in good shape, cute, but sorta boring on top. Sam painted it, then created stencils and painted it again. I'm very impressed by her stencil skills, as well as the composition. Isn't this marvelous?
Stay tuned! More is coming!
