I usually listen to books on tape while painting, but I’ve got a new soundtrack this week – walls imploding, jackhammers drumming, and ceilings a-lifting. My new studio is finally under construction! Fortunately, I’m not required to supervise, but it is fun to see doorways appearing, bathrooms disappear, and ceilings rising 8 feet higher into the air. It’s amazing what two construction workers fueled by Carlos’ egg-potato-bacon breakfast burritos can accomplish!
Thanks for all your gorgeous suggestions. It’s not too late for me to make even more additions to the construction wish list (hey, the guys are still in the building!), so I’d love to hear your awesome dream studio ideas. Thanks to you, I’ve added goodies I hadn’t considered before (faux wood tile flooring, a new fireplace, shiplap, oh my!). I’ll be sharing before and after pictures in my next monthly newsletter or tune into the next episode of Flower Mound Studio Fixer Uppers for the colorful scoop. Don’t forget your hardhat and goggles, ladies!
The journey from idea to conception has been a long one, with many twists and turns. I learned one particularly important lesson along the way, a cautionary word of advice to anyone planning a studio renovation in future, so tune into my monthly newsletter for more on that.
