When we first sat down to build our house, a photography studio was a must-have space for us. It would be small, but it would give me an opportunity to build up clients in a part-time studio setting while patiently waiting for the time when I could go full-time and open a real studio outside of my home. The room sat mostly vacant so that it could easily be transformed when I had clients over. When I decided to slow down on the business and take a break from clients, the room essentially became storage. Letting go of the studio space would mean that I had let go of the business and I wasn't ready for that. Months past. This absolutely beautiful room was wasted. It was heart breaking.
This summer, after finally deciding to stop the business entirely due to a number of family circumstances, it was time for a remodel of the studio space. Since we had always intended it to be some sort of studio, and art studio for the kiddos seemed like a logical choice; they could do art, I could do art, there would be zen. It would be amazing. It has been amazing actually. As soon as we started this project, the kids have been in there doing art all the time. It's awesome.
Anyway, here are some photos. The shelves are from Ikea. Other than that, almost everything has been hand done (part of the time consuming process.) We wanted the room to be bright and colorful for the kiddos so there are rainbows everywhere. I'm so glad this is done. Now to finish the other two rooms I am simultaneously redoing!
