Garage-to-Studio Conversion D-O-N-E

When we moved into our tiny 1940s cottage two years ago, I had a vision of converting the detached garage into a dream studio space. However, we knew we had to tackle the kitchen first!

From this...

...to this

With that task done, we were able to move on to the studio conversion! We began working on it in September. It began as this:

We removed the old garage door and installed french doors:

Painted the floor with some really toxic cement sealant tinted a blue/grey:

Insulated, installed drywall, painted, added wiring, installed a plank ceiling, and then I moved in!

before...

...new window installed

...really really after

chaos

Then everything in it’s place…

This is a store fixture than came into our shop a few months ago. I knew it would be the perfect fabric storage/cutting table solution because it is on wheels so when I need to baste a quilt, I can wheel it out of the way and use the whole floor.

Here are some detail shots of the inside…

I still have one or two areas I need to clean up, and with all that furniture in there it is a lot smaller now, but I officially started sewing in there last week so I call that D-O-N-E!
