As a work-at-home artist I make a concentrated effort to manage my time so that when I'm creating, I'm creating... and when I'm not, well, the upkeep of a house and 2 growing boys and 3 shop dogs and @artshowroadie is no small task. I like my space to be cozy, clean and conducive to creativity. I love my space but recently it just felt worn, and not in the way that your favorite concert t-shirt from the 90's feels worn. So we had some homework to do.
This is my kitchen. We got a $5000 estimate to do this work and said, "we can do this ourselves." And we did for a whole lot less. This kitchen used to be brown walls and builder-honey-colored cabinets (boooorrring). The 4 of us got to work on Saturday and took cabinets off the walls, doors off cabinets and sanded, stripped, primed and painted finishing on Monday. I love working side-by-side with my guys and completing a big project together.
Homework is good for the soul. It's good for me to mix it up and see a tangible difference in the space that I love. Stay tuned for the updated kitchen with artist-built open shelves.
