In April, hubby & i moved from a 3-4 bedroom ranch home with a full basement & single garage into a 2 bedroom duplex with an upstairs bonus room. Now that bonus room is part storage & part my studio. I was only able to get one afternoon up there to unpack my supplies, etc, before it got too hot up there. Then the central air didn't work correctly & the entire unit needs to be replaced & new lines run through both sides of the duplex. (Financially, i am VERY thankful that this is a rental) The landlord has gotten us 2 window units for now, plus a dear friend gave us a unit. So, last week, one of the window units finally got upstairs & tomorrow, i'm going up there to work!
Here's how it all started in May....
This is the narrow hallway that leads up to the kitties' domain & my studio. Not an easy climb for a wowee size woman. Hopefully it will be good for me though. lol.
At the top of the stairs - items that will go into storage in the closet when i get it emptied of my supplies. (An no, the box marked "CATS" does not contain any fur babies, just figurines.)
Jewel & Princess are here to supervise.
Queen Jewely Jewel making sure it all meets with her approval.
My painting garret. Princess Tippy Tail is making sure that the table is sturdy.
Empty shelves to move around & fill.
I have one window & mostly i see the neighbor's house or the Caterpillar plant behind us. And now with the window AC unit, the view won't be near as good. =)
Now, after i took these pictures, i was able to get about half of my supplies, etc. put away. So hopefully, i'll get all set up tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Next week, i'll begin sharing the tips that have been sent to me & i plan to have pics of a working studio. I'm excited about that too!!! Be sure to invite your friend to share their tips too. Until then, have a great week! <><
