Studio Update

The studio doors are not yet complete, still missing the transom;
but I think Sue's studio is almost there. As Sue begins to use the room, 
a few things might shift, but it's a great start.

Converted living room to studio
This room will get daily use now 
instead of just for holiday dinners.
If ever they need overflow from the large table in the family room,
this table, with leaf added, can still seat another 8-10.

Card making supplies and computer needs
in this corner. The spinning card rack (left on the table) 
is where her computer sits now. 
We hadn't brought it down yet.

Some of Sues' travel treasures

Sue's machines, plates and dies
all tucked away but within easy reach.


A cozy loveseat to rest or visit 

I love when folks are brave enough 
to have their homes work for them and not just set up rooms
that look Blog/IG worthy or that fit a traditional use. 

What changes could you make?

If you missed the BEFORE

What an incredibly fantastic space you and Sue have created!!!! I don't think I would ever leave it. All I would need to complete it is a comfy, upholstered, chair large enough for me and my (very large) cat and my magnifying light for stitching...and a place for my rug hooking frame. You did an amazing job Z. ~Robin~

Unbelievably awesome! So functional and so funky. Gives me visions of what could be one day for me. For now, I work through the mountains of wool yardage! Great job Z!

Looking very good! The organization is impressive.

The only change I would make is the hardwood chair. Any amount of time spent sitting down, the hardwood isn't good for circulation the way the edge presses against the back of the legs. A small scrap wood footrest helps take the pressure off.

I have over the years thought of converting my living room into a studio. so well done!!

I now have two studios, thankfully. One is fabric related, the other is paper related and my computer.

Your space is stunning!
