The sudden surge in painting projects forced me to accelerate plans to turn the third, small garage bay into studio space. It needs a total rebuild but no time for that right now.
So, on a recent Friday night, James got in from work and wanted to start on the revamp right away.
Here’s what the space looked like when we started:
Ninety minutes later, the space looked like this:
A trench and grass to divert or absorb water; nasty old shelving removed and the beginnings of a Tyvec enclosure.
By mid-afternoon Saturday:
James covered the ceiling and three walls in Tyvec to give me a lighter space and separate me from the nasty framing. I confess, there are areas where there is only Tyvek between me and the great outdoors.
I also confess, the space doesn’t look nearly that tidy one week on. It’s already chock-o-block with projects and supplies.
Just the way we like it.
I don’t think my studio will ever make the pages of the “Where Women Work” publication but it works for me.
What’s your creative space like?
