I’m hoping my SO will install the new light fixture I bought for this room. Here’s a picture of the progress so far. The shelves are my old craft show display and all the pots are my bisqueware. My kiln guy says there’s nothing wrong with my kiln so it’s either the wiring (hundreds of dollars) or the plug ($15). Today I bought a new plug, we’ll see. 7 months ago

The room is painted. I decided to be easy on myself and just wash the woodwork, not repaint it. Ditto for the floor. When I’m finished I won’t even notice. I also put up part of my old pottery sales display, just for holding bisqueware. My studio is small and as my kiln has not been working and can’t achieve glaze temps, I have a lot of bisque (the fired but unglazed ware). This frees up room in my studio for greenware, which is more fragile. AND, drum roll please, I finally called my kiln guy who is coming on Thursday to fix my kiln, or at least tell me if I need to move it and rewire. I am excited about moving back toward doing pottery again, no matter how slowly or how part-time. The granbeanie tried her hand at the wheel last weekend and liked it.
I last did pottery regularly around the time Black Jack died and I still miss him guarding the studio door long into my working nights. No matter the weather, he’d park himself outside, between me and any harm. Sigh. 7 months ago
I was staring at all the upper level area still unpainted and decided to try a small roller on a long handle. It worked! It may not be as neatly cut in as a beveled brush would have it, but it looks fine. I still have one wall but that requires me moving a bunch of heavy stuff, so that will have to wait. Then maybe next weekend I can paint the trim and the floor. 7 months ago
So I bought a gallon of paint. My shoulder is still very painful so it was hard to carry but once there, I started right in. I’ll need to borrow a step ladder, I can’t reach all the way with the step stool I have. I always forget how much these projects take out of me. Brushing or rolling with my right hand is just painful and with my left, just awkward. But I’m plowing through. And I think I’ll have to repaint the woodwork, too. I wasn’t planning on that. And the steps, and maybe the floor. I was thinking just this weekend and I’d be done. Ha!
I used to be able to do all this stuff myself. I’m feeling decrepit. 7 months ago
