Been working on the studio this weekend, felt a crazy urge to get the ideas out of my head and into reality.
Here is the before...lots of great household storage and shiny silver insulation, all very practical...but not what I wanted to look at all the time. My mind saw curtains to give the illusion of a wall, something that could be opened and closed easily.
It took 30 feet of cable, clip hooks from Ikea and 15 yards of muslin...
The louvered bi-fold closet door in the corner hides some PVC piping, opposite that are a full set of doors that screen the furnace. Found all these at a local re-use shop for $10 a pair. I will probably paint the brown set eventually, also wonder if I can add cork to the insets to make them into bulletin boards.
Over to the other side of the room... I replaced the sagging plywood shelves with white melamine boards, one day I will paint the wood white too. Organization will come slowly but surely, still trying to determine my needs, but it's not a bad start. The Christmas light strand hung on the ceiling is a necessity since lighting in the area as really poor, only two light bulbs in the whole space.
Here is the next project I will tackle...it is an incredible built in workbench but there is no electric. I need to take down the pegboard and stud the wall to I can have electric run. My hope is to do all my polymer clay and jewelry work in this space. Oh, I'm also dreaming of a thrifty old wood window pane to hang and cover the not-so-pretty metal window but not lose the light.
