Conjuction Function

Dscn2860 It was rainy and cooler yesterday when they applied the one-coat epoxy on the floor so a longer drying time was needed.  They will return tomorrow and either apply another coat since I had 2 gallons of left over paint or go ahead and move the stuff into the storage room, whichever I decide.  But I'm eager to get it up and functioning and not sure if another coat is really needed. There is a storage room that runs the width of the basement behind the wall in this photo and much of what will be kept will go in there.  If I was a planner and organizer I would measure the wall and floor space against the items I'll be moving in...but I'm neither a planner or organizer so I'll move it in and then decide. 



For basic functioning I'll need an anti-fatigue mat to stand on and some daylight bulbs...I will be scouring the 2nd hand stores and craigslist for a comfortable chair and rugs.  All the comments sharing in my excitement for this space to work in are very much appreciated.

  1. I'm so excited for you getting your own space (and envious too!) and can't wait to see what beautiful art you produce.

  2. Love it! Already looks more like a "home" doesn't it? You might try freecycle.org too. I've found some great pieces of furniture on there and they're - free! :)

  4. You might try a yoga mat for a few relaxing poses when you get tired. There is a "new" form now called Sew Yoga, a program designed by a seamstress, I believe. My favorite pose is still the corpse pose which, all kidding aside, is mega-relaxing.

  5. Way to go...a new studio. When I lived in NJ I took hold of the basement as my studio too, shared with the laundry room but it seemed I kept forgetting to do the laundry. Oh well.
    I second checking out freecylcle.org, someone in my area was giving away a piano but I saw it too late. Bummer.
