Art Studio Makeover: Before and After Part 1


The studio painting is done! Woo-hoo! I’m loving the color.

Now I’m dealing with the blank canvas equivalent. I call it empty studio syndrome. The new studio color is so nice and fresh that I don’t want to muck it up by hanging things on the wall and filling the studio with clutter.

I’ve been perusing Studio magazines, and the IKEA, Container Store, Home Improvements, and Solutions catalogs. I’m thinking about switching my regular work table for a work bench. My punch list has been written and I know I’ll be adding to it.

For now, I’ll share with you the nearly empty studio before and after pictures.

I love how a fresh colorful coat of paint can transform a room. What do you think?
