The rectangular space has a low T shaped wall that divides it into three sections, my workspace which I call "the apothecary", the teaching space and the front area called "the showroom." The teaching area contains a large chalkboard and eventually a long table with benches and or chairs.
The cabinet you see above is part of a two part unit purchased at the Rose Bowl flea market that was bright white. I took off the two outer door on the top piece so that those two spaces can be utilized for display. Right now I'm thinking its going to hold glass jars filled with the little solid perfume pot samples.
My iron trellis, also purchased at the Rose Bowl flea market, has had some metal work attached to it so that it could function as a door. I painted the metal with a creamy colored chalk paint and then went over it with clear and dark wax to match the worn iron on the original trellis.
Since this week will be short due to Comic Con, I'm intending that the week of Monday, August 4th will be an auspicious time to start setting up the work shop. Of course, this depends on the Whizin management folk attaching the iron gate to the purple wall and lots of other parts to the turbine. For example, although I used an environmentally friendly, zero VOC paint there are still some fumes that the constantly running ionizer still has yet to remove. Then there is the matter of needing some counters for the apothecary area, more on that soon.
looks amazing. xoxo
SO exciting, Roxana! I can see the care with which you're shaping your new space. It's coming together beautifully. August 4 is a wonderful date-- my wedding anniversary! ;)
All looks beautiful Roxana! I always say it is not a big deal to create a lovely space with a lot of money but to do so on a small budget is amazing. I am certain that your space will look and feel more than amazing.xo
