In August 2013, my husband and I bought a house with an art studio in the back yard! It is a separate building where the previous owner taught stained glass classes.
After the previous owners left, I had this totally bare building to make into my very own art studio! She left me one of the big tables which I love and it is perfect for spreading out all of my jewelry making projects and other craft projects. And they also left two shelving units.
I decided I wanted my studio bright colors with lots of artwork on the walls and a conversation area to relax and have a cup of tea with a friend.
I found a couple of chairs and a little chest at a resale shop. I didn't want to spend too much money on this studio, but I wanted it to still look good. I picked out the blue and green for the walls since the chairs were blue. One chair has pink flowers with green leaves so I used pink as an accent color.
We moved into our house in February 2014 and I completed my studio with some more furniture and lots of family artwork for the walls. I love having my very own art studio where I can spend time without interruptions and to be able to concentrate on new jewelry pieces. And I can close the door and leave a mess without the cat getting into anything.
