View Full Interactive Version Of This Page : My Studio Space - Finally!
Be it every so humble, this is my new happy place! Since I started lampworking 2 1/2 years ago, I have had to move twice. I've worked in a crowded corner of a bedroom, on the porch, on the deck, and in a 7'x7' utility room. You don't know how happy I am to finally have a permanent space for my fireplaying. This is in our one-car garage. The car never has been in there, but the bicycles and Harley live in the other end. I plan to add some built-in shelves and get all the electrical cords placed in a safer way, but it's workable. And the best part is that the ventilation system is so good and so quiet (fan is in the attic). My DH worked very hard building this for me and I owe him big time.
So, whatcha' think? Go to next post, 'cause I forgot to add pic, hehe.
And my worktable.
Yahhh!! for you! It is soo nice to have your own little space to get away from it all!
We are slowly turning our garage into a studio. It needed a new roof and has that. We are using a wood burning stove for heat. Is yours heated?
Brandie, mine is not heated, tho DH wants to insulate and heat it at some point. I don't how much good it will do, with the ventilation pulling cold air in. But we'll see what he can do - sometimes he surprises me solving problems like this. Wood-burning sounds perfect, really hot and radiant so it doesn't matter if a lot is sucked out. Hmmm, I might have to mention this to DH. Thanks for the idea and hope yours gets done just the way you want it. It sure feels good to finally have it all there and waiting for me. :)
I like your arm rests, did you make them or get them from somewhere? I really like the Creation Station, but I`m just starting out, and can`t really afford that right now. Yours look quite comfy!
what a great little happy place!!!!
Looks like a great space!
Thanks everyone! Yes there is a story behind the armrests. I bought my grandson a carseat to keep in my car, I think it was Evenflo(?). Anyway the little plastic armrests kept falling off of it and I just put them away. When it came time to set up my worktable I thought about them. My DH is so great about making my ideas into reality! He mounted them on wood pieces and fixed them to swivel with a screw underneath. I usually leave them tightened though. They attach to the worktable with a C clamp. I haven't had a bad burn since I started using these, my forearms are stabilized on these and my hands don't wander into the flame. The best thing about these armrests is that they cost almost nothing.
Love your space, Rita. What a great DH... he's definitely a keeper!
Thanks very much Leslie. I'm really lovin' my little corner and spending every minute there I possibly can.
I love your studio setup Rita. What a sweetie you've got!
