Art Studio Weekend Makeover

My art space just wasn't working for me anymore.  I had to do something!  Our whole family is creative, and we desperately needed to have more work space.    Since we had a three day weekend, we decided to dive in and get it done.  I have now taken up half the basement and the closet under the stairs.  It's constantly evolving, and I am sure it will change again over the coming months.  

Art Studio Before
Recently, we were given two old tables that were in bad shape.  Troy had the tops sanded at a local woodworking shop for only $30 dollars.  They had a 36 inch belt sanding machine.  It would have taken Troy lots of hours with a belt sander to clean them up.  Troy worked his magic and refinished the table skirt and legs.

They are so beautiful!  I am so grateful!

Stair Closet Storage
I am so excited.  My girl has a place to craft with me now!
My goal was to use what I had around the house.  I didn't want to buy anything.  We only spent $40 total.  $30 for the table refinish, and $10 for the bulletin board for my frame.  I need to get stuff on my bulletin board for inspiration.
  Time to get busy and get creative! 

Have a great week!
