A new studio ~

Well, it looks like I'm going to move in to my new studio! My son decided to move into an apartment with a friend he's grown up with and they will both be so much closer to their college now. Brad is excited to create another incredible space and I'm excited to create one for my artroom as well!!

I thought that I'd show you the beautiful photos of the garage after his transformation last year.....my studio will soon be occupying this space but I have a good bit of work ahead of me!! I bought paint today because I want to brighten it up a bit.

I know that these photos are dark but you can get an idea of what I have to work with. It is a two car garage that he has converted into a living space. It is totally reversible as well, and can be transformed back into a garage at any time. He will leave the wall of sheets that he draped across the door. They are hung on a cable that he found at Ikea. The sheets are a medium khaki color and I'm painting the walls a light khaki, almost beige. I think it will be a good backdrop for all of my "stuff".







So sweet friends, wish me luck....I have much work to do and would love to get it accomplished in a short amount of time!!!

I hope that you have a great, relaxing Saturday dear friends,


xxoo, Dawn

It's going to be wonderful! Your son certainly didn't have the average bachelor pad. Must be that he takes after his mom.

How exciting!!! I know this is a relief because I am busting out of my studio and I can't even walk around in it right now. LOL Hmmm.... I wonder if you will end up using both rooms??? One for a little store and one for a workroom? Sounds good!!
Love you,
Yvette

How dreamy to have so much space. I am cloistered in a small bedroom of my home but I make the most of the space I have and love its littleness. I just know it will fantastic! Hmmm, will we be seeing you in Where Women Create in the near future?

Hi Dawn, I'm so excited for you to have this new space to create all things beautiful!! You deserve it for all you do for others. Thank you, Thank you for your help and inspiration to me in starting my own blog. I'm hanging in there. Next I want to get my own blog roll on. Hope things are going well with the coming new baby. Enjoy creating a happy space for you. Your son did a wonderful job with the space he had, no one would every guess it's a garage! Love, Linda

Dawn, we are all excited and a bit envious. But personally, I am also tremendously curious about how your family turned a garage into such a lovely space!!!
Any chance you might fill us in???

Well Dawn,
I see that you passed the decorator genes off to the boy! I only wish!

Can't wait to see what you do with it.

If I ever had a living space like that, I wouldn't want to leave home! Your son did a great job converting that garage.
And how wonderful for you to acquire that! My husband is a car fanatic, and the garage will always be just that. I can't wait to see how you transform your new nest!

With your talents and what you have shared, this will be a wonderful space for your art. It looks very cozy and warm right now.
Your, Mary
