Party Prep

   I thought you might like to see a "behind the scenes" post of how I've transformed my studio into a great party place for our Art Parties! The above photo is the end result of painting, shuffling furniture and minding details.

This armoire, transfered from home, is the perfect piece to stash everything out of sight!
I painted it the same color as the walls to make it "disappear".The chairs, below, were jazzed up with a little paint and Sharpie!

Wanting to create a calm backdrop for the Art Parties, the walls were painted "amazing Grey" by Benjamin Moore. The space instantly looked twice the size.

                                            The grunt work- filling in (a million) nail holes!

The new wall color really shows off some of my new paintings too!

Laying out canvases, I wanted to make sure there was enough room to comfortably seat at least 12 guests per party.

        The two new sets of track lighting really make a difference in the ambiance of the room!

                       Putting the finishing touches on the room made everything come together. White serving dishes add a touch of elegance to an evening of painting, that's for sure!

                                        I love the way white shows off the yummy treats.

Below, you can see the full effect of "before" and "after" in creating a soothing calm space for Art Parties!
