Progress




Hello All,
My Husband surprised me a week before Christmas by starting a new project, shelves for my art room! Was I surprised or what when I saw what he was doing. Here are a couple photos of his progress. They are beautiful built in shelves. He has never done this before and I think he has done a marvelous job!

I am ready to move in. I have ordered linen baskets of three sizes from The Container Store, and as soon as they arrive I will be able to put everything away in it's proper place. I have a vision for this room now and it is exciting to get it all together. I also saw three vintage mail baskets at a antique mall an hour from here, and if they are still there tomorrow, I will get them too!

One thing that did shock me was seeing all the stuff I have when I had to clean the room out! Did I really collect all that stuff!!!??? I was very brave and was able to weed out quite a bit of stuff. Whew! It does feel good to let go of excess stuff! It clears the way for creativity and I feel lighter already!

My husband also bought me special lighting for video, so as soon as my room is ready, it is back to tutorial making! I love doing it and I am deciding what to do a video on first. There is so much fun to be had!
I will be putting up photos soon of my finished art room. I think I may even have a party to celebrate!

How wonderful! I have a feeling I will open up an issue of "Where Women Create" one day and see your smiling face and studio greeting me. You deserve the best of the best Terri and I'm so glad you have a wonderful husband to do that for you! Enjoy and keep showing us how it's coming! xoxo Rhonda...

How nice!And is that a desk area in front of the window~ I can't wait to see what tutorials you will be making....Trying to figure out what is up with my video camera may be as simple as needing a new battery. UM...techy stuff.
I am going to scroll around and see what else your up to! Are the kids still home? or did they go back to school? Take care~ Theresa

Terri said...

Thank you all for stopping by. I wish you could see them in person, they are fab! Although, my room is quite the mess at the moment...still waiting for my baskets to arrive.
