After a week of serious carpentry a bunch of real nice people came over and helped us paint every square inch of the space. I can't believe how different things look after a couple coats of Mythic eggshell latex paint in Parrafin. Seriously, it's gorgeous.
The Ikea tables for the sewing machines and small people chairs for our "little stitchers classes" got built and stained. I love the bright colors but also still being able to see the wood grain. I think it's a lot more fun than a world of pine furniture. And the cabinets for the bathroom and general "hang out" area were put together - they are having their counter tops installed today while I do important things like blog and order books.
