after 8 months of hard work...pushing my physical limitations...with lots of days of rest in between days spent working on this space, it is finally ready to become a cozy meditation/reading/lounging/guest room in the lower half,(shown here), and storage space in the upper part, (not seen here), near the entry door.
Tonight, I will probably look at this photo dozens of times with deep gratitude while I relax and savor this moment...✨
Even though I’m waiting until tomorrow to style this space, I couldn’t resist laying down this Opal House rug that I picked up the other day at Goodwill for under $30, (brand new with the tags still on it from Target at a fraction of the original cost).👊🏼
Tomorrow I will mindfully unpack my remaining boxes and set up this space and also the other room upstairs which will be my office/shipping area for my artwork. Stay tuned for a final before & after post of this room...
(if you are into that sort of thing).🤔
It may take more than a day to get these final spaces styled and in functioning order, but I am looking forward to the process of this final piece, (of this stage), of the puzzle as it means that I can settle in to my “temporary” studio and start creating again!
I intend to hunker down and focus on painting & creating new works through the fall and winter months...✨
