I also need lights, probably about 6 - 8. I am thinking the clamp on kind, and halogen bulbs. I have on of those crafting lamps which sometimes gives the illusion of sunlight, but one in the basement doesn't cut the mustard and at pricey a pop I got me doubts I'll be using those.
My dear Chad hasn't been around yet, he went and got himself a part-time, but I am dragging him to Power's Salvage this week and he is going to build me a table, g-d'mit!
Inventory tells me I have two working sewing machines and 2 sewing tables. I need a serger and a dress form, but it'll be zig zag stitch and a duct tape dolly until the studio is in full swing (as oppose to full slings).
I need a counter top bench for dye work and some soda ash and urea and a drop of manutex too...
The windows need some curtains, the floor needs some rugs. And a dehumidifier would be nice, it is a basement after all.
I went to Power's and got some $2.00 tins of paint, sky blues, minty greens, and pinky pinks and I been slapping it on. It brightens the place up a bit, cuts down on the dinge.
When the space is complete it will consist of a laundry room. storage, dye area, giant work table room, and a sewing room with a tiny back lounge.
I think i will paint the tiny room entirely pink to give the impression of being inside a gum bubble and it is where I will sketch... or be sketchy... like a pink panic room...
Where I can go when I have given myself to many tasks (ack!) in to little time (eek!) and the kids want to be feed (ugh!) and the floors need to be washed (eep!) and the dress needs to be stitched (wah!). Where I can twitch the pink curtain into place and curl up and rock until help shows up...
hmmm.... but until then, back to work!
