A studio closet makeover!
Scroll down a couple posts and you can see the before and afters of my office studio. The walls were khaki without the pleats! ;) haha. We painted the studio all white except for the closet...I wanted that khaki color because I was to paint a mural in it utilizing that shade. Here are the before and afters. :)
painting snow mounds
adding a little snowdrift [?] texture
painted my "Roxy Marj Winnie Pine Trees" on each large mound... but I didn't want them to be so bold looking. For this mural I was going for a modern/rustic vibe with some softness...
I whitewashed over the trees, the whole closet
now to add little mountains, cabins, cottages, and gypsy wagons! So fun. :)
then with some watered down black/blue/grayish paint, add some smaller
trees to fill in the white space
After that was complete, we installed a shelf to put my sewing books and old sketchbooks on and then put my industrial sewing machine and serger back in it's place. My next revamp will be those curtains. They're nice and simple...pretty even, but not magical...they need some magic! ;-[)

Lastly.... we have a new friend staying with us. Her name is Sidney, she is six years old and is a Terrier mix. We found Sidney through Lead and Love Rescue just outside of Redmond, OR.
Sidney wasn't treated well by the people who owned her. She was overbread, kept outside the whole time and because of how stressed she was she would chew on rocks...so she doesn't have any of her front teeth. This past Monday when picked her up for the first time [from the vet] she had just gotten spayed and a couple teeth pulled. She's on a lot of medication and was nervous to come with us.
But she has done really well so far, she and Harley are getting along fantastic considering he kinda has "only child" syndrome [Harley is 14 years old for those of you who don't know] and that makes us even happier that he has been good about sharing his bed, food and water with her. Now I just love that little guy even more. We are supposed to foster Sidney for a week and the plan is that if all goes well we will adopt her.... it looks like we may be adopting her. ;)
pretty out of it. :(
Day 2: curiosity sets in and she is starting to eat some food and drink some water.
Day 3: a friendship is starting to forge... ;-[)
Day 4: Doggies that nap together look out for each other! Melts my heart. :)
So so glad these two are getting along. Dogs have such a sweet spirit don't you think?
