Yes, the rumors are true. My art studio is ready to occupy. This has been the longest flooring install ever!. It’s all in the prep work and having the right tools and patience. It really would not have taken this long but it is our first time and frankly it turns out we did not purchase the best quality of product. But it’s all good.
So, between the all of the challenges and other projects going on I would say I am very happy with the results. New wall colors, new flooring. Painting all the trim, baseboards, closet doors, ceilings, new hardware; door knobs, towel, toilet paper, hand towel racks and shower curtain. Along with new bedding, pillows, area rugs. I believe I am all set. There is always something new to buy and some need to fulfill but all in time.
Since I don’t know what I need in my studio until I start working and realize “hey I need this or that” I am working with what I have. My work station in a folding table, which I like because I don’t want anything to big or heavy that I can’t break down and move. Did I just say move? EEK! Here is a little secret, I have asked Karol if I could occupy these rooms for 1 year, as I want to leave Las Vegas. I am in two months of my one year goal already.
Among all this new flooring I have been getting ready for the Holiday season with my Etsy shop. I will be adding some new sized bookmark art, new greeting and note cards and ideally I would like to add some gift sets. This is a lot of work to do in a short period of time so we’ll see how this turns out.

And there you have it! My new space for The Healing Tree Studio. For the next 10 months of my life this is where I will be. Creating, drawing and painting and living the dream. I do have some details to finish but it is obviously ready to occupy.
I recall in an earlier post that I mentioned the wall color and misspelled it. It is Oyster Pearl, that is and will be the color for the entire house. I love it. I painted the ceilings and closets, and all trim and doors a very white called Cameo White. New brushed stainless for all hardware. The baseboards were reattached using a nail gun and chalking strips and gun. The actual flooring is a laminate click-in floating floor. I have a couple of transition pieces to fit into the areas going to the bathroom and the “bedroom” area. The floor is lower then the tiled floor of the bathroom so it requires a custom piece. Overall I give it a “A”. So what do you think?
The bedroom is done as well but I still have some tools and table in there and it won’t make for nice photos so next time I will sneak those into my post.
Until next time…
