As we made the decision last winter to sell the Seattle house and move to our cabin at Hood Canal ... I only had one concern ... our small foot-print, single-level cabin didn't have a place that I could dedicate to quilting.
We looked at a number of online alternatives to buy a pre-built building ... but the costs were beyond what we were prepared to spend.
Enter my amazing husband ... he knew that we needed a shed to store the kayaks among other things ... so he volunteered to build the shed first and then parlay what he learned on that into building a quilting studio. Who could argue with that ?!?!?
|"Back-yard" Quilting Studio|
The floor is Maui White Washed Oak by Hampton Bay (Home Depot). Both paints are by Sherwin WIlliams. The walls are Shiitake (SW9173) and the trim is Navajo White by (SW6126).
So while I have been wrapping up work in Seattle ... my husband has been building me a quilting studio out here ... it is actually hard to put into words how much that means to me.
We partnered on the floor installation for the past two days and he wrapped up the trim yesterday. It's done!
A couple of pics of the process ... it started with this.
The outside is still in "construction mode" and probably will remain just wrapped in paper until the rain lets up a bit.
Hopefully the rain will let up enough tomorrow for us to move some of the furniture in (we desperately need to get our garage cleaned out ;-). I am probably a week away from starting to get creative in here ... but I am looking forward to years to come !!!
Hope all is well out there for all of you!
All the best
