The Last of the Final Touches on the New Art Studio

Here it is, last of the of the final touches on the New Art Studio:

The final painting around the door and the wall is done.  The switch plate cover has been put on.

All outlet covers have been put on.

The last section of the floor has been painted

The floor seam between the two units was filled with spray foam and then caulked.

The floor seam was painted and some of the touch up spots painted. (The paint was still wet when I clicked the pic, so the touch up spots look lighter than the floor.)

Then I added some nice finishing touches:

I bought myself a nice door mat, to keep the sand from being tracked in until the contractor can get back and build my little deck outside the door.

 I added rubber mats in the areas I will be standing a lot, in front of the north side counter top where my glass grinder and band saw are.  (I still have some organization under the counter to do.)

In front of the south side countertop where the table top kilns are, …

and in front of my glass storage cabinet.

I am so excited, it is now a working art studio!!!  The only thing left inside to do is to plumb my sink, and that is my Hubby’s job.

Next Update on the New Art Studio

Sorry I have not posted in a while.  It got crazy, busy around here over the Holidays and we were out of town a lot, as you saw by some of my posts.
Here is the latest update on the New Art Studio progress.

Doing lots of tedious stuff the past few weeks, such as removing blue painters tape around the windows and a/c units.

More tedious stuff, such as caulking all the cracks in the ceiling before the final coat of paint.IMG_1520

Putting the final top coat of paint on the cased opening.
(Sorry about the glare from the lights.)

Every time I come out from the house I bring some of my stained glass with me to put in the cabinet. Here is a couple of my beautiful pieces.  These are original Wasser Glass I acquired from Chad Wasser himself, from his private stash, which is no longer made.  You can still get Wasser Glass, but they just don’t make the colors like this anymore!!

Another piece of my beautiful original Wasser Glass from Chad.

Scored some beautiful porcelain tile at Habitat Restore for my counter top on the south side of the art studio for $25.00.  Yes!!  Score of the day!! IMG_1621

Hubby, Rick, got the title installed, now I have to grout it.

I just love how all my Sterilite drawers fit under the counter top neatly.  I planned it like this.  Makes it so easy to access my tools and supplies.  Love it!!
