One of my favorite things about this house is the back building. It spans the width of the lot ( just 24’ wide) and is about 15’ deep. Inside is a large storage closet and a full bathroom. The rest is open and perfect for painting. Welcome to my new studio!
There’s always something to work on in a house this old, but for the most part my studio was able to get up and running pretty quickly. I coated the whole thing with a fresh coat of white paint and then flooded the cement floors with black porch paint.
The bathroom in here took a little more work, but not bad. We had to remove a big mirror from the wall ( which tore it up pretty good as there was a lot of glue ) and let’s just say that the studs in this room aren’t in a traditional pattern. So to smooth things out and provide a place for hooks, I used this paintable wallpaper that looks like tin and then we topped it with a wood cap. The cap rail gave me places to hang a shelf and hooks. The rest was just paint.
