The Studio Floor

The studio floor is finished and looks great! But this is how my studio looks now....


We moved all of the boxes of my dishes (for mosaics) upstairs out of the garage into my studio. Before I can put anything up, I want to paint the built in cabinets at the end of the room in a fresh, crisp white.




The back stairs going down from the studio...we need to replace those lights one day...


Boxes to unpack...

I am the type of person that normally likes to finish on project before I move on to another, but with this house remodel it seems I am working on 5 projects at once.

Are you still hanging in there with me? I still need to finish the master bath, and two guest baths. Want to see what happens next, even if I bounce from room to room?

Welcome Home,
Penny

Yes indeed, I want to see more ...no matter what order!

The studio floor looks great! You have such a nice big area. Even with as much fun as you are having with the remodel, I bet you can't wait to have your studio organized and sit done peacefully with your first project!

Penny-I have been missing your posts some how. You have made so much progress and I LOVE that floor. Your studio is going to be fabulous. Love your powder room too--I have been thinking about redoing mine and yours inspires me!!

Sue said...

I am hanging in and enjoying every visit. LOVE, LOVE that floor!!!

Kathleen Grace said...

Of course we want to see more! I love the floor and if that were my studio space I would be in there 24/7. It is going to be a wonderful place to create your beautiful mosaics:>)

bj said...

Your floor is amazing. I remember that,at one time, you were going to hand paint it...is this tile?
ANYway, everything is just beautiful...you are making an amazing home for you and Mr. Confort....
hugs, bj

From this side, it looks like things are really coming together. Your studio is huge this time! Lots of room for creativity.

Multi-tasking is good! I love the floor. I know that it didn't double your space but it looks like it did.

Pen Pen said...

May I come to live in your studio? Love it!!!

Pondside said...

Of course I want to see how it all turns out! This has been most interesting. With all the projects I have in mind, The Great Dane has started building another wooden shed - the waste of energy when he could be painting or laying tile!

Adrienne said...

Keep bouncing - I'm bouncing with you! You inspire me and I wish I could finish up my home projects at the pace you and Mr. Comfort are doing yours. Hey, why don't you come over here when you're finished with yours? I know I'll still be far behind and there will be plenty to do! Seriously, I love checking in to see what you've done. It's coming together and I love everything you've done. Keep up the good work! ~Adrienne~

Hi Penny

Angie said...

That floor is awesome and so is the toile bathroom! I love seeing all the beautiful projects you are accomplishing!

Miss Jean said...

Oh, Penny! I wish Santa would bring me a sewing room as big as your studio. I cannot complain, though, as I have a room just for quilting. Bigger would be nice. "Santa, are you listening?"

I love the floor and the shelves and can't wait to see it finished.

If I am ever in NC I may show up on your doorsteps for a tour. I'll bring cookies to bribe you!

Have a wonderful holiday in your new HOME.

Betty Jo said...

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Oh Penny, I know I am not supposed to be but I am so jealous of your studio.....and that floor....oh my! I have always wanted a checked floor like that. We have to refinish our foyer eventually ...so maybe...just maybe I will get it it in checks. Happy Holidays friend if I don't see you again for a while. xo Lynn

The floor turned out great! It seems to me you're making wonderful progress everywhere. :)

KarenHarveyCox said...

This room looks great Penny. I love the floor and the two white hutches are perfect. I can only imagine how much work this is to accomplish. Great space too, tucked in the back of the house and up the stairs. You can really get in the creative zone in this room.

Wow, floor is fabulous Penny - what a difference it makes to the studio. You are going to create non-stop when all the decorating is finished.

Where did you get those tiles. I'm in NC and have been searching for tiles just like that.
