Happy Autumn!

      It's officially Fall, and it sure does feel like it. I'll be bundled up whilst working on my furniture today. We put our deposit on the studio on Saturday (hurray we're broke now!), and by some engineering wizardry our designer managed to raise the cross ties on the second floor up to 9 feet rather than 8. I'm giddy with excitement about this. I think it's going to give the effect of a very lofty interior. If all goes according to plan we'll have the new structure built before Christmas.
     With that in mind I thought I'd show you the space that will be my workshop, as I don't think I've ever shown you interior shots before. It's currently my husband's music studio/mancave, but that will all be going into the new building once it's complete, freeing up this oversize garage for my business.
If you want to see more about what I plan to do with the workshop, you can visit this post that I did a few weeks ago.
 Also pictured is my next project that I'm working on today- a solid cherry Ethan Allen table with five matching solid cherry chairs.
     Happy Monday!
So almost all this stuff is going into the new studio space. I'll have a big open space to start.

I really want to replace the hideous garage doors with pretty double carriage doors.

This desk, which weighs the same as a baby elephant, was made by the previous owner and is almost 50 years old. I'm going to sand and re-finish the top is a darker color, paint the base white, and then jack the whole thing up on great big casters. It will serve as a work island in the center of the workshop.

The hutch top that sits on it is also staying. I'm going to paint it black, and put it on top of my antique counter (when I get one) and use it to store all my stain, paint, and poly.

And here's the table I'm working on now.

with the beautiful matching chairs. This one's gonna be very handsome when I'm done.
