Day 13 - Studio Renovation moving along...

 Above you can see a picture of what my studio looked like before, faux wood paneling with white doors. 
Also please take a close look at that carpet. When we ripped that out there was a sticker on it that said "1981" and the underpadding on that turned to dust when you stepped on it. It was a non-negotiable demolition that had to happen because it was just so gross.
 Below you can see what we have done in the room so far!  We have taken out the carpeting, fixed the electrical and updated it, we have painted the ceiling, walls, window casings and doors in that room in "Believe" which is a warm white from Home Hardware. We have also almost finished putting down the laminate flooring which is an "antique oak"plank style from RONA.

It is actually really amazing what some paint can do and a lot of hard work.  The ceiling was very difficult to paint. I was very lucky I had help from my parents for a couple of the coats! We still have to put trim up and baseboard, but it is going to be a wonderfully white clean space to work in! I can't wait to dress the windows and walls and decorate to turn that into a productive little space for myself!
