My Studio

How would you like to step inside my
 STUDIO
 for 
a
 tour?



My 
STUDIO 
is 
in my home.
This is the entrance
from
the outside




The former owner used this area 
as a 
workshop
We have completely renovated the area.
The floor is just a ply wood floor that 
we painted 
with
 the black/white diamond 
pattern





We used a paint called 
Al Flor
 to paint the floor
so it would 
be 
durable
It was sealed with several coats 
of a 
water based varnish



My
  STUDIO
 is
 divided into work areas
 for
 painting, computer work, assembling and various crafts



My

PAINTING AREA


My husband made
 the paint rack 



I use
 for my work



I am 
a

and


You can view my 
DecoArt Profile


Thank you
DecoArt 
for 
all the wonderful products
you make available 
to 
Artists and Designers 
to 
create with!


Just a "few''of my FAVORITE brushes!



To 
the 
RIGHT 
of my paint table
 I have an old bureau that I painted
I use that to store FABRICS
I stacked 
bookcase 
on top of 
the 
bureau
 to store 
my 
Chalky Finish Paints
and 
other various painting mediums




My husband made all the wood shutters on the windows.

I painted a small table and chair for my grandchildren come to visit.
They love spending time in the STUDIO!




My 
Computer Area
is 
directly behind
my paint table so I can easily 
roll my chair
 back and forth
which I often do 
when I'm taking photos
 of 
my work 
as
 I paint!



The last area is my
Assembly/Task Area
I often do my pattern design here, assemble pieces and use this area for general crafting.





I made the
 large ruler



I purchased the LARGE paintbrush which measures 72"





My husband made
 the 
large RED cabinet
for
storage



I found this 
OLD BOX
which measures
34" x 22"
at 
an antique shop

I mounted it on the wall


I use spring tension rods to store ribbons
the small wood boxes
 store scrapbook supplies, ink pads, stamp sets


The door to the
LEFT
at the far end
 of the 
STUDIO
was once a stairway 
that we closed off
 when 
we remodeled

That area is now  used 
for 
SEASONAL STORAGE

The 
middle door
you see leads 
to
the basement
and
the door to the
RIGHT
leads to 
my
LAUNDRY ROOM


I have 
UTILITY SINK


in 
there 
which is perfect
 for 
washing my brushes etc.

The cabinet on the left is 
FOLD DOWN IRON BOARD


My 
Studio Assistant's name
is
OREO
He is a one year old shih-tzu
and 
an absolute love bug!




I lost my precious 
COLBY
in
December  of 2014



He so loved to spend thyme in the STUDIO with me
I miss him terribly


I also have 
another
STUDIO ASSISTANT
called
HINKLEY


He often appears 
in the 
STUDIO
some thyme
 before 
THANKSGIVING
to
help me
MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN
for
Christmas!



You can read more about
HINKLEY
and
my other Elf Les
and
their
ELFCAPADES




My 
STUDIO
is my 
HAPPY PLACE
where I love to spend hours 
creating and painting
