Hi there, all.
So without much initial fanfare, here are some photos of the room in general. In future posts, I can go into more detail on some of the crafty projects that we did and even some yet to come. (Studio Reno 2.0).
First and foremost, the whole effort was born out of the need to get rid of the nasty carpet in here. I mean, that just made no sense. So here is that nasty rug (before):
And here was the finished, naked floor. BTW, this is BALK veneer flooring from IKEA. (You’re gonna see alot of IKEA in these photos):
They were fired from the firm. But it is cleaner in here without the fur.
I thought I would miss that light fixture. It was bright, but the bulbs
burned out constantly.
the closet with those file cabs showed way back in there like that.
they jut 6 inches into the space. And those were my tiny narrow
shelves that held my art supplies.
And that huge black cabinet above the desk which I banged my
head on several times during the renovation. Both are gone.
Enough. I love my husband and it’s fortunate we get along so well in a work envirnoment, but I can’t believe we were crammed in here together like sardines for 4 years.
Here are the “afters”:
there that I may discover a year from now. And the lateral
file cabinet which we salvaged from a place in Portland. It
locks and everything.
out of a box in the garage and I had to have them.
Well, there you have it. Thanks for putting up with blurry photos. We’re still hoping for that DSLR camera someday. And these photos are hopefully incentive for me to blog with a bit more regularity going forward. I’m still rather new at it. I also need to work again, and have projects backed up “Like planes at Kennedy”. We started the renovation in April and it took alot longer than I thought. I’m ready to make stuff!
