Reclaiming My Studio
Once upon a time, my son asked if he could move back home for "3 months or so". He was having a tough time and had lost his job, so I agreed. I let him move into my studio since I wasn't using it at the time and he didn't want to live in the house proper.
Well, 3 months turned into 3 years and my poor studio took a beating in the hands of a young man. But, he has moved out now and I can finally reclaim my space.
As you can see, I have to repaint everything, from the ceiling to the floor.
I need to pull a hideous credenza out from under the counter and do a bit of landscaping up front. There are "Glow-in-the-dark" stars on the ceiling that need to be scraped off before painting.
I intend to paint it in fun colors and hang bulletin boards along the long wall. Since I have a bead studio in the house, my beads won't go out there, but all of my other art supplies will, along with my art books. I want to use it for teaching a couple of classes, inviting my artist friends over for "Inspiration Parties" and to do a semi annual studio sale.
Now all I have to do is get the ladder out there and start scraping those stars off the ceiling!
