Mon Atelier (Studio update)

I have a new space! We built a bookcase with antique tin and an old door that we cut in half for the sides, on the other side I have shelving for all my art goodies!! I love to re-purpose! This was
quiet a project! I had the vision but I am no carpenter! It was a team project! Mary, Pierre-Andre, myself and Danny for the final touch! The bookcase needed some stability and Danny and his skills made it work! Hurray! I love it! Great storage!
I made a bulletin board for one side to hang inspiration and pictures, two door knobs are holding the board, very easy to realize.
I took out the old green carpet and let the floor bare.I did a faux finish on the concrete and finished with a wet look sealer. (3 coats!)It looks great like you could skate on it! Great reflection with the ceiling! I used a metallic paint on the ceiling.( very hard to take a picture!)
On the floor, I used the words that we sell at the store from Danielson Designs! By the way they are on sale 60% off! It is very easy and fun to use! You could also cut your own stencil!
So my studio is coming along, I have my work table under the window. That is all right now.
My daughter is coming tomorrow! Youppie! We will go on a search for the perfect wedding dress!


  1. That silver ceiling looks great! How did you do it?
    PS how did the wedding dress shopping go?

  2. Your Studio looks great. I love the floor.
    I know you will enjoy making your art here.
    Enjoy Emilie
