Studio Redo: Finally Finished!

Well, it has only taken me 3 months to get to this post but I am happy to say the tent is gone and the studio is ready for business or at least creating.
 It was quite an ordeal but wind, rain and collapsing tent didn't stop me... I had damage control but it is what it is.
 I am just happy to have my studio back. 
Just a quick recap... here the before pictures. 
This post was the way the studio looked when WWC shot it for the magazine...  But then it was used for storage after I closed the shop. I had my shop studio and I needed to move all that into this space, so until I could organize, it was used for storage. 
To organize all this stuff I needed to move everything out, so hence the tent. I moved most of the contents to the garage and a tent I put up in the back yard.  Needless to say, it took longer than I anticipated.  
New paint, new flooring and a new look!
 I am happy with it...

Warning: there are a lot of pictures here!
 So you might want to go get a cup of coffee or a glass of wine depending on the time of day.

Are you getting bored yet?
 I should really make two posts out of this... but lately it has been hard to post with all that is going on.

Some bracelets I am working on...

Hand dyed velvet roses with chain

Wishing you all a good week and hopefully I can visit you this week. I have been missing all of you.
