Here are photos of the rest of the studio.
In the Halloween Room, we have a "love window" between my studio and Adam's shop. Yes, we're annoying. We set it up so that we can see each other all the way into the big white room. It's nice to be working on something and be able to wave at each other or open the window to chat.
I tell you, painting that ceiling was something else.
This is the door leading into the Arabian Nights room. I designed the shape and Adam made it. I love it! It makes me so happy to walk through that Moroccan arch.
It's hard to tell, but I did a different floor color in the Halloween room. It's more of a rusty coca-cola color and the other rooms are more greyish.
The hole in the wall is for a speaker. They're in now, and painted the same shade of indigo so they blend in.
In the above photo, I hadn't painted the duct yet, but it's done below.
This will serve as our media/guest room. We're hanging a bed from the ceiling from chains so it swings. I have tons of lanterns I'm hanging from the ceiling, too. I want it to look like an Arabian lantern shop.
Okay...out of the little rooms and back to the stairs. I'm thinking of putting a small couch under the stairs to make a reading nook for the girls. And me, too. I love to snuggle up in a little place and read.
Up and up and up.
I stained the risers by hand. I tried to get them about the same shade as the floor.
Here's the loft. I'm going to use it for a small gallery and as my office. I finally got the floor right. Did I tell you I had bubbles and a haze in my top coat? I had to sand off half of the floor and start over. Drat. It turned out how I wanted, though.
This was my Grandpa's organ. Aren't the gothic arches pretty?
The view looking towards the stairs.
Looking down into the main studio area.
That's it! Now I have to finish moving in and kill all the spiders and scorpions. Let the creating commence!
