The place The Studio Undertaking Stands At present (What’s Left To Do)

I haven’t gotten a lot work performed on the studio this week. Wednesday was my birthday (I’ve formally entered a brand new decade…the massive 5-0!!), so I took off on Wednesday and Thursday to do some enjoyable issues. So at the moment, I’m turning my consideration again to the studio.

That room is so massive, and proper now, it’s so cluttered that it’s laborious to actually see what must be performed. Through the years as I’ve been engaged on this home, I’ve gotten rid of a lot litter, however I’ve additionally saved fairly a little bit of stuff. And as I’ve began on one room, I’ve simply boxed up the stuff I didn’t need to half with, or didn’t need to decide about simply but, and moved it to the following room.

For a very long time, the visitor bed room was getting used to retailer bins and different stuff. I removed quite a lot of it, and the remainder received moved to what’s now our grasp rest room. Then once I began on the grasp rest room, all of it received moved to the house gymnasium. After which once I began on the house gymnasium, all of it received moved to the studio.

And now, I’m engaged on the studio, which is the final room that I’ve to complete on this home. I’ve nowhere else to maneuver stuff, so it’s all both packed away within the storage closet, or it’s shoved over to 1 facet of the room.

I don’t need to put any extra stuff within the sunroom, and I don’t have an outside storage constructing or storage the place I can put stuff (which is for the very best), so the primary precedence can be to determine what wants to remain and what must go, and to do away with the stuff that I don’t really want.

The remaining will ultimately discover a dwelling within the studio cupboards or the studio storage closet, however I’ve a protracted solution to go earlier than these issues can be usable. So even after decluttering, I’m nonetheless going to have quite a lot of stuff to work round as I attempt to end this room. I’ll simply should pile all of it in the course of the room in order that I can have easy accessibility to work on the cupboards and different issues across the perimeter of the room.

However anyway, this morning, I made a decision to take stock on what precisely nonetheless must be performed within the studio and adjoining areas. The listing is fairly lengthy. My objective was to get these areas completed by August nineteenth, which is the date we purchased our home. And this yr marks our tenth anniversary of buying this home. I would like so badly to be performed with all the inside rooms by that date! But when I don’t meet that objective, it’s not an enormous deal. I gained’t beat myself up over it, however I do need to give it my greatest effort.

So after snapping a couple of photos this morning, and taking stock of what must be performed, right here’s what I’ve provide you with…

The toilet can be fairly straightforward to complete since I’m don’t have any main initiatives in right here. I simply want to color the partitions (I’m going with colourful vertical stripes), after which set up the brand new tile. That’s it!

The again entry can also be fairly straightforward. I’m going to color the partitions and ceiling a strong colour, hold some new curtains, after which make some artwork for the partitions.

The primary room is the place issues get extra sophisticated. The entire room nonetheless wants baseboards, and I’m going to repaint the partitions a lighter colour. I additionally want to put in a big consumption vent for the HVAC system which resides within the storage closet. The sunshine that goes over my desk wants a brand new lampshade. And at last, I need to discover a piece of furnishings to make use of as extra storage for that wall to the left of the cased opening.

Each doorways in the primary room (e.g., the outside door and the door to the breakfast room) want casings, and the doorways should be painted. I additionally need to repaint the bases on my two massive work tables a brand new colour. The tables are buried beneath the litter proper now. 😀

On the primary wall, I want to put in the brand new wallpaper. The cupboards will clearly be the most important challenge in right here. I want to put in them, trim them out, and paint them. The entire stuff piled on this facet of the room is so much to take care of!

Earlier than I may even set up the brand new wallpaper or set up the cupboards, I first want to maneuver 11 shops up about e inches within the two partitions. After which after the decrease cupboards are put in, I have to make the counter tops.

General, there’s fairly a bit to do, however this room appears so much simpler than the grasp rest room challenge. That room had quite a lot of little tedious initiatives. This room appears a bit extra fundamental. I’m doubting that I can get it performed by August nineteenth, however I’ll give it my greatest attempt!

So right here’s my official listing as of at the moment, June twenty third:

  • Sand, prime and paint the lavatory partitions
  • Set up the brand new tile within the rest room
  • Paint the ceiling and partitions within the again entry
  • Hold new curtains within the again entry
  • Make paintings for the partitions within the again entry
  • Have 11 shops moved up on the cupboards partitions of the studio
  • Paint studio partitions
  • Set up baseboards (wooden fill, sand, caulk, prime, paint)
  • Set up door casings on two doorways (wooden fill, sand, caulk, prime, paint)
  • Paint the 2 doorways within the room
  • End caulking, priming and portray two window casings
  • Add massive consumption vent for HVAC
  • New lampshade for mild over desk
  • Discover or make furnishings piece for space left of cased opening
  • Repaint the work desk bases
  • Set up the brand new wallpaper
  • Set up the cupboards
  • Paint the cupboards
  • Construct the counter tops

That’s a protracted listing! And but, this challenge doesn’t appear practically as massive or overwhelming because the grasp rest room did. This room feels extra “again to fundamentals” to me.
