You know I have decided to start a jewelry business. It has become very important to me now since I need to make a lot more so I can make money to send to Haiti. They need food and medicine. I can't make a lot working the way I am. I need a studio like yours. Will you please help me?
Yes, my love, I will.
At the top is my daughter's play area in our lower family room. It was adorned with a large Cinderella and her loving mice friends. Lauren reported that she has out grown them and that this would be the perfect place for her studio. We jumped right on it!
First my daughter selected her colors for the area....
Benjamin Moore's Razzle Dazzle, Harbor Side Blue, and Gold Metallic ~ oh boy!
I took a deep breath ~ then I realized that these colors connect well with that area of the room ~ phew!
The pink connects with her area rug and all her pulls.....
The blue connects with the adjacent bath.....
And the gold metallic ~ well every little girl needs a hint of glam!
So off to the bare wood store we went. We found the perfect pieces. Next Jim and Lauren got to work sanding.....
Note Millie, our dog, in the last picture. This is all Millie wanted to do with the project...
It was chilly in the garage but we ventured forth with painting...
After carefully reading the instructions on the paint, we found out it was too cold to continue in the garage so...
...into the sun room we go ~ you bet I covered everything ~ the furniture and drapes are off white! That ended Lauren's painting her studio furniture. She's was ok with that ~ we played Monopoly while Jim painted. She was very tasteful with her paint placement. The gold was used on the drawers only ~ the pulls ~ pink. Lovely!
Next we found the perfect chair ~ I cannot believe we found a chair the same hue as the razzle dazzle paint at only our second store. It had to be put together...
Next came prep and touch-up. Down came Cinderella and her mice.....
Spackle and measure...
Finally ~ it's time for installation...
A proud moment for my generous little entrepreneur...
Yes, she did pick out the zebra print trash can ~ her final touch.
There you go my love ~
What are those things hanging from the ceiling?? Lauren and I worked on that art project. That was a while ago when she thought her space needed some pizazz.
What's in the cabinets?? I placed a row of utility cabinets in her area for toy and art supply storage. Lauren has the bottom portion; general storage in the top portion.
I am so glad this VIP was pleased. The most important VIP there is!
