For the past few months, I’ve been working on and off on my new studio space. Today I thought I would share a Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial. Yes, I painted the carpet. It cost a lot less than replacing the flooring. And I think it looks awesome.

This space, many years ago was a home, then a bakery, then an Insurance Agency and Gun store. Now half of the building is my husband’s embroidery business. WeEmbroider was started back in 1999. Henry took a break from the embroidery business to focus on the insurance agency and a couple of years ago he decided to get it going again.
Since we own the building it was perfect for us to use for our business. And Henry said, I could have half of the building to create a workshop/studio where I can have workshops.
The carpet was a mess in there. With so many people coming through, foot traffic, spills and what not. But the cost of replacing the carpet was too high. So Henry and I brainstormed and came up with the idea to paint the floor.
I did all of the work myself. Henry helped me move furniture but I did all the painting. It took 4 coats and 10 gallons of paint to get the floor ready to decorate.
After the floor was painted white I painted flowers and dragonflies. Using craft paint, Acrylic paint and even some Glam from Tattered Angels.
Then I started moving items into this space. Jewelry making supplies have a corner, the Stamps have almost a whole wall. The hat making area is also in this space.
This is my sewing space. I use this area when I’m working on alterations or creating items for customers. Making quilts has been something I’ve enjoyed for a few years now as well. Oreo is taking a snooze on my cutting desk. The chair is there so he can jump up there. Oreo loves to look out the window.
Tea cart belonged to my grandmother and I got it when my mother passed in Sept 2017. The sides fold out and it makes a really nice table. Some of my altered domino necklaces, bottle cap necklaces and more.
I hope to have my first workshop in this space soon. Some of the workshop ideas will be some of the following.
- Hat making
- Jewelry making
- Greeting Cards
- Junk Journals
I will also have private classes for those that want to have a couple of friends or one on one to get help with a project. Make sure to follow my Facebook Page to get updates on workshops. And feel free to contact me about doing a workshop.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today to see the Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial.
