T Stands for TimeTravel.............

 Goodmorning everyone! Happy T day!! I thought i'd take you back in time to where all this began... 'this' being the craftroom...In May it will be 2 years since we began this whole house project...And where did we start tearing out? Yep the craftroom.. ofcourse then it was the garage... technically i guess it still is a garage..but all the sheetrock and insulation was tore out and replaced with upgraded insulation.. the concrete walls had a false wall added on them with insulation..... the garage doors were sealed and covered up with false walls and insulation... the water lines come in , in that corner and we ran all new plumbing... all new electrical........and here recently..........


I've been able to wipe all the dust off the walls....thats a chore in itself...



We've been putting paint on the walls and ceiling.....



So how about a peek???? 


We've actually been able to spend alot of time working in here... Keep in mind my craftroom is double the size of what your looking at and the other half is completely sheetrocked but still has to have the mud put on it and smoothed etc... But this half is where my workspace will be... All this is in preparation for countertop...



Speaking of counter top... We even got some of that installed...I wanted the back legs to blend into the wall... Hubby got to play with metal and his welder and wanted to make the front legs... I painted them the same oil rubbed bronze i used in the closet upstairs if you remember...
Its slow going... and i try not to think that i still have half a room to go.... but its progress and exciting and i'm over the moon!! 

And ofcourse there's been drawing and coloring... I have no idea where the grapes came from.... i made that bunch coming off the side of the coffee cup and hubby mentioned they looked like grapes so i went with it... Originally it was just going to be circles and doodles and flowers..I'm in love with that sunflower....May need to draw more of those.... So happy T day to all my Tea People visiting from Ms. Elizabeth's and Bleubeard's ... They put on a wonderful T party every Tuesday .............AND if your not part of the Tparty gang I'm super glad you stopped by too...All i seem able to do these days is the Tparty post and i'm so glad you pop in to visit... Hugs! deb

Hi Deb-Isn't progress just soooo rewarding. I bet you can't wait til your craft room is done and ready to use. will it be the entire garage?? that is what I need-more space-but I have pretty much moved into the living room as well lol Happy T day

Wow! The scale of your craft room is awesome, Deb. I'm so excited for you!!

What is the countertop material? I can't wait to see what goes underneath - shelves, drawers ... A place for everything and everything in its place ;-)

Yes, more sunflowers, please. It's wonderful. You do such great detail work.

It's remarkable all the work you have accomplished, not just in your new craft room, but in the entire house, too. I am really impressed and in awe of the work you two have accomplished, as well as the size of your new craft room. That counter top is going to be out of this world! I think you are definitely "over the hump."

Your latest mug is fabulous, and I simply adore the summery feel this has with the grapes and sunflower. Thanks for sharing this look back and the update, as well as your lovely drawing with us for T this Tuesday.

CraftyViolet said...

Wow! 2 years working side by side with hubby and still getting along just fine! That's awesome. Your craft room will be awesome too!

Thanks for the comments on my blog. So glad you got to walk in a snow shower and enjoyed it. We are just a tiny bit sick of it here. It has started snowing again and very windy....and I'm not walking in it....because it is also very cold.

I hope you get to see the RBG in your area. We love it when we can get to the one in Aldershot that has great hiking trails as well as flowers.
