Not a lot of progress has been made on my new jewellery studio in recent months as I've been working too much in the space to have the time to work on the space! However, there have been some improvements, which I thought I'd share.
Firstly I have now painted the steel roof frames a bright glossy red after rust-proofing them. I still need to do a bit of touching up of the white paint to hide some of the accidental red smudges!
Secondly, thanks to the efforts of my Dad I now have a fully functioning sink area. Having running water in my studio is an absolute joy after years of running back and forth to the nearest tap in another room, which was time-consuming and sometimes dangerous and messy.
The sink has been finished with some great looking vintage laminex which was reclaimed from a community hall which has had its kitchen replaced recently. I'm really happy with it!
Plus my Mum finished off some curtains to hang beneath the sink so that I can hide away chemicals and the like. The next major task in the jewellery studio is to sort out the floor. At present it's just exposed concrete.
I've looked into various solutions, with many being beyond what I can afford. At this point I'm planning on simply etching and painting the floor, plus getting a square of padded vinyl around my bench to make it less hard to stand on.
