Operation “Rescue Studio” is finally underway….


June 5, 2014 by Denise

I’m posting this to keep myself in check. I am not going to let this summer pass away without getting my studio done. We’ve been in this house for almost two years – it is WAY past time to get it organized, so I can actually WORK IN IT. So – here are some before pictures:

I know. What a mess.
I know. What a mess.

There are many people I know that can relate to this I’m sure!!

Another view. Yup - still a mess. Another view. Yup – still a mess.
A view of the closet. NOT a mess, because I cleaned it out to paint it. A view of the closet. NOT a mess, because I cleaned it out to paint it.

 I am hoping to document my progress start to finish, and all of the products I intend to use for the studio – names of paint, brands, techniques, etc. Because I like to know the stuff that people use when they do those beautiful things on Pinterest. And maybe, just maybe, someone will be inspired buy this project and pin it!! I also intend to fully document it with photographs. And maybe a few posts of frustration along the way. The ugly dark brown shelf is going to get a chalk paint treatment (just bought it today – I’m a chalk paint virgin), the walls of the studio are now 3/4 done (more on that in my next post) and I’m adding two shelves to the closet, and painting that a darker gray. I went with a neutral color because I have all kinds of crazy art that I want to hang on the walls.



Plus I pay for this dang blog and it’s about time that I use it!!

    You know I can relate! Except I haven’t been brave enough to document and post my “before” and my “in progress” pics. And I have been working on it, off-and-on, for months.
    Your room is going to be great, and it will inspire! Me and others. :-)

      I know you can!! I thought it would be a good idea to blog about it to keep me working on it – that and I don’t have much to blog about, lol!!
