|Visual Storyboard - the overall look and feel of the space!|
When we bought our home, it was always in the plan to convert the garage, so 2 years on it is exciting to see the transformation taking place. I have to take a moment to thank Denis. He patiently worked with me renovating our kitchen, laundry, den, bathroom and bedroom first before starting this - which made me a very happy and content lady! :)
So while Denis is doing the hard stuff, I have been starting to design the interior. Trying to incorporate touches of a 1950s beach side theme to suit the studio location, working within a strict budget and utilising our existing furniture, second-hand and hard rubbish finds!
I'm totally in love with the vintage inspired beachy fabric from Mini Moderns. I have a couple of teak chairs to cover, so better get onto that soon!
|Mmmmm, the state of the garage before we started!|
|Our cute shed found on ebay|
|Elevation 1 - gorgeous original windows|
|Elevation 2 - the front of the garage|
|Walls framed and ceiling going up. Mmmm the wall is not straight!|
|Ceiling and gib complete, planning the ply feature wall.|
|Ply up and undercoat complete - looking mighty fine!|
|The amazing seamless wall (to be used as a photo backdrop).|
And check out the amazing photo backdrop Denis built. It's a seamless white wall (no sharp corners) that will be used for product and fashion shots, and also video interviews.
