Now...onto more fun things. What have we been up to lately? Well...while squeezing in creating things and taking care of Olive...we've been ripping the studio apart! Literally!! It's been going on for the past month (waaay too long) and while we're currently at a place in the transformation we can stay at for a little while while I catch up on orders, it's still not done!
Ben and I (mostly Ben) ripped up the thin osb overlay on the floor to reveal the original pine planks that's considered the subfloor. Well...this stuff is beautiful and is now the main floor!
Our studio is the attic of the house that was made into an apartment in the early 80's (I just learned the date from Mike down at the hardware store who is related to the original owners of the house). It had this hideous and very claustrophobic bathroom that had no running water and was taking up a huge amount of space. So we ripped it all out!! This is what I'm building in it's place.
And this is where our new old sink is going. I had my handyman tap into our existing water lines from downstairs and Ben and I traveled through three states to pick up a free antique cast iron sink from Craigslist.
The first section of the studio is almost finished and I worked in it for the first time today!! It was great! Now we just need the sink installed and we're onto the second half...phew!
Oh...and what else is up? I thought I'd share part of my lunch...yummy hard boiled quail eggs from Miss. Quailie who lives in the dining room. Delish! :)
