!We are on the second stage of building the art studio. That comes down to a lot of painting
The walls have been rolled, and now it's time to paint the trim with a little help from my friend, Janet Smith!
The next thing to tackle is the chimney. I had to get the old, rusted, gross pipe out of there. I didn't know what might jump out at me from that hole! I steeled myself and then painted the cement a nice, clean white.
I put a nice, new pipe in the chimney. That pipe goes to our water heater in the basement. Then, I put a second coat on the walls. The trim is all done and things are starting to look good!
The next thing to tackle is the floor!
The floor is an old, wooden floor. The first thing I wanted to do was caulk all the cracks to help keep the cold out. There were a lot of cracks but my assistant was ready to help as usual!
It took as long to paint the floor as it did to paint the walls. It was worth it though! What a difference a coat of paint makes!
The ceiling, walls, trim, floor and chimney are painted.
Now comes the fun part - decorating! Stay tuned for Building An Art Studio Part 3! I'll be putting down a rug and hauling some art equipment into my new studio!
