When you have a friend who has worked for the phone company forever,
When you have a son who works in Northern Canada in the woods, SCORE! (Moose and bear skulls)
Creartfuldodger will be not be cre-arting for awhile…
Instead I will be working on my new studio, in an artful way of course.
Whoot! Whoot! It’s a real studio, not just a corner of a busy shared space!
Phase one : Repurpose a salvaged tool drawer unit that was destined for the skip.
Here it is in it’s before state: or almost we added some wood to hold it together.
Note the ugly brown paint and green labels…it was dirty! I decided to try my hand at chalk
paint for the first time.
Added two shelves and a new top with some trim. Sanded and cleaned each drawer. Two coats of Emerald Green Fat paint and wax purchased from Cameo Boutique and Union 22 in Cobble Hill. Reaffixed the old copper hardware. Lined the drawers with old Atlas pages. And it was ready to hold some creartful junk. Feeling smug! Merci Michel mon cheri pour ton aide et ton soutien!
