When I started my business (Pink Loves Brown), I used a second bedroom in the apartment we were renting as my studio. Soon work spilled out into the rest of our home, and areas like the dining room table became the shipping center. After two years, I had finally rented a separate studio space! Hooray! 600 square feet of space!
Then we decided to buy a house, and I gave up the studio. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, because it is a trade-off I was more than happy to make. Brandon and I both wanted a house so badly, and there is room here for me to make a studio… in a spare bedroom. Just like when I started. ;)
So now the space has gone from 600 square feet down to about 150. It’s tight, but manageable.
A lot of work has been done already. I’ve painted the dragon (YAY), turned the closet into storage for crafty supplies, and setup my shipping center (not on the dining room table, thankyouverymuch). Still to do: rip up the carpet and lay the solid bamboo floors, paint the wood trim white, and change the window treatments.
Plus it feels a little bland in there. Maybe I shouldn’t have gotten rid of the dragon!
