Just a short post, I’ve been so busy fixing up the studio and yard I’ve had no time to write, or do much creating. Guess I’m creating a space to create, but I really miss making art. Keeping my hand in with drawings that you can Check out on my instagram account.
I thought I would give everyone an update on the progress of my studio. Let me tell you, I have so much respect for people who paint houses for a living, It’s soooooo time consuming and fiddly and progress is so slow. The inside walls just kept soaking up all the paint, so I had to get a special primer and that seems to be doing the trick. It’s made to cover stains, it’s awesome, one coat of it was like three coats of the British Paints stuff I bought.
I also scored some cheap Dulux paint from a hardware store that’s closing down near me, reduced from $96 to $20!!!!! Very happy about that, sad though to see the hardware go, so many DIY’s, so many memories.
Any way, the outside is looking great! I still have to wait for the deck wood to “season” ( whatever that means) before I can stain it, but already it feels like I have my own little alfresco cafe in the backyard. It’s so nice to sit there and have a cuppa and a chat with whoever is around.
The inside still needs the cheap Dulux on the walls and I think I’ll leave the ceiling raw, (cause I’m too lazy to paint it). I’ve painted the shelves that were thrown out down the road and they look perfect and I’ve got an old desk that has travelled everywhere with me for years. My son was using it, but he’s happy to swap it for a modern one I have. I’m going to give it a lick of paint today, with my magic, stain covering paint. Hopefully, I’ll be finished painting this week and I’ll be able to move in and get to work on some more art. Wish I could just wave a magic wand!
The pictures are of the front of the cabin, obviously, the view from the verandah, complete with trench for the cables to give me power and internet access and the beautiful view framed by the window on the side of the cabin. I’ll post the inside when I get it all set up.
Till next time,
Share the love.
