Studio Update Two!

Another studio update so quickly???  Well, some technical difficulties were the problem.  The pictures on yesterday's post were actually from two weeks ago. . .. here are last week's studio updates.  This weekend I am spending dyeing yarn.

The cubby holes in place:

Below are the finished cabinets - Jeff just needs to mount the wall cabinets.

We have some new fun lights - two are for the track lighting above the desk - and one is just a fun floor lamp that just so happens to match the flowers I bought for the studio way back when the idea came to life.

The track lighting - just need to find a couple more to go with these two.

What are the chances that these lights match the flowers. .. just have to pick up an orange flower.

Studio tour:

Looking left as you come in the door.  The big rug loom, the 4H LeClerc kind of hidden.

Back right corner, rug loom in center, desk and lake cabinet on the right.

The right corner as you come in - the sitting area.  Need to add some lamps, the TV and a  some tunes.

Well, I think that is the update for now. . .. back to yarn dyeing.  I have 30 batches of yarn to dye and package to be ready for the knitters retreat this coming Friday at Sauder Inn.

Studio Update!

Now that winter seems to have set in, it's going to be a high of 20 today, it is time to get back to working on the studio.  If you remember, spring came very early in 2012 and we abandoned the studio to work outside. . .. well, now we are back inside.

The wall still needs to be finished to separate the studio from the rest of the basement, it is started, but Jeff is very busy at work so it will have to be "fit in" as he can do it.  So, I've decided to keep working on the bits and pieces that I can get done . .. and magically, all will be in place just waiting for the wall . .. . LOL!  We'll see how this works out.

Here is a picture of the cubby holes - aka - shelves I painted this past weekend.

I spent a lot of time staining the cabinets for the studio.  Nothing like shopping in your own basement, this is a set of base cabinets and three top cabinets that have been in the basement "kind of" being used that I have moved into the studio.

Nope, didn't even take the contents out! LOL!  That was too much work and might slow down my progress.

Next update soon, I am planning to get the things put back together and clear out all the "non studio" stuff so I can begin using it.

Probably a shopping trip to Mom's basement to get my TV and a couple lights.

Stay warm!
