We made some good progress today and I'm learning to use
some new tools, like a nail gun! Quite different from a sewing machine.
Bless husband . . he is so patient with me!
Before this re-do my closet had big shelves, and ugly wire shelf and a pair of brown curtains,
I didn't love it but it was better than trying to shove the doors back and forth to reach supplies.
This time I decided that even the curtains should go. Having the closet fully open
makes the small room that is my studio look and feel much larger!
I'm big on re-using and re-purposing when possible and these big ole
shelves have been with me almost as long as I've been in business.
They have been arranged many ways and painted a few colors, tho they aren't
fine furniture, they are nice deep storage.
So . . . we painted them again, stacked 3 high on the left and the single on the right
we topped with a "bread board" style desk top, we added a simple trim to all the fronts
for a nice finish . . . that was the nail gun part!
This is now my "Sewing Pantry", inspired by an antique "Buttery".
I'm still thinking a bit about the open space over the desk,
my wire racks of ribbons would fit nicely, so would more shelves.
But . . . that's a decision for another day!
Tomorrow is Paint The Walls Day!
Many little holes have been spackled and I'm all ready to begin.
Well . . . after I unload that big yellow cabinet so we can get to the wall behind it!

|Paint still drying . . . Another flat surface to clutter up :-)|
|For some reason I kinda like these two cupboards sitting side by side, I haven't made a final floor plan yet,|
but for now they look like big brother and little sister.
If you are where the winter is acting wicked . . . Stay safe & warm!
We are about 15 below tonite!
