Renovations!

Exciting progress today as we move forward with the renovation of my little art space formerly known the laundry/storage room. Unfortunately the space will still have to perform the duties of a laundry room but there will be a space about 12'x12' that will be dedicated to me and storage will be moved to the other side of the room or the outside shed. I can't wait to have my own space. Today's progress included a fresh coat of cement paint on the old gray walls. Unfortunately the paint sprayer that 'R' purchased from ebay didn't work so he went back to the roller. I think it looks better already!
After getting the walls painted 'R' decided to go ahead and get a coat of paint on the floor. We swept and moved everything out of the way and then realized we didn't have an extension handle for the roller. Then I had a great idea why not use the broom? Well that is what we did we swept the paint onto the floor with an old o'cedar broom. It left great texture on the floor. The process was just what I needed today after working on my Dad's finances and trying to finagle my schedule to get him to his doctors appointments next week. Over the last few months I have really turned to art for relaxation and comfort. Anyway after two coats 'R' had the coverage he wanted and I had the texture I like. A match made in heaven. Stay tuned for more updates on the renovation. Next week I think we will work on a dropped ceiling.

Barbara, good luck with the art room! Art can be such a good way to relieve stress and get back in touch with the core of who you are. When I moved here, a new friend actually helped me arrange what is essentially a large storage room, to make a studio for myself. It's not perfect, but it's a great little place to lose myself for a few hours!
