More Basement Studio Progress

Here's a 'before' shot of the kiln and shelf area of our basement studio.

And here's what it looks like now!

I brought our little french bistro set into the area. I have a feeling it will now get much more use than where it was before. I still have to remove the blue painter's tape on the floor after I decide on a color for an accent stripe. I ended up painting the floor a chocolate brown color to complement my lighter "area rug" color that I embellished with gold fleur-de-lis.

I thought a little green would add a nice touch to the area since it's the basement. But only one of them is alive.

Can you tell?

Take a look at this sconce I just found at GW.

And look how much atmosphere it brings to the space when it is lit!

Oh, and I was lucky to find a pair of them, and have plans for the other one too. It will be located in the last little space I have left to finish. Is there any doubt how much fun I'm having in here already?!
