This post leaves off from around March when we finished the first part of creating my sewing and crafty studio. In part one I showed how I partitioned off my garage and added sliding glass doors instead of the old wood doors to let in more light.This is the old garage before we did anything to it. My husband had built himself a new place to park his stuff and the old garage became a sort of repository for all of our junk. Since then two of our kids have gotten their own places and sop they carted away some of the furniture. A lot of it I purged in my grand giveaway last year.Then we added the glass doors and had a plywood wall and door installed to divide the deep garage into two. We covered it with some closet doors our handyman found at a home Depot warehouse sale. They had been ordered by someone else and never picked up so they were practically giving them away.. There were lots of them so they might look like a paneled wall.
The walls were still cinder block and the room still looked very unfinished. The paneled wall seemed somehow too formal to go with the unfinished look and all the wires hanging. But I moved my stuff in and have been having a great time spreading out my mess ton sew in here for the past several months. Then I had the play and the wedding dress to make and so I put the redoing of the room on holf until last week.
Recently we have been repainting the house and had to do some plaster work on the outside that isn’t done yet. The guy plastering the walls mentioned the walls would look really nice with a smooth coat of plaster on them. We also decided to put some crown moldings up to cover a lot of the electrical wires and make the room look more like a real room and not an old garage.
