Shelfless Artist's Studio

About: My favorite quotation is: “All you need in order to accomplish something great is a good idea and not quite enough money.” – Anon I live by that theme, and the ideas just keep coming.

Thankfully, I don't have a sob story. I am blessed abundantly by the home I have and the creative talent to upcycle everything with paint and glue. But it would be nice for a change to have ready-made, high-end products to finish off my spaces. In this artist's-studio-in-the-making, for example, I've upcycled a pendant light and a fuddy-duddy chandelier for pennies. I've also added an accent wall with paint to look like a winter forest scene. Ideally, I would like to add floating shelves over this entire wall to store and display things that I will later have for sale. Storage, storage, storage is what I need!

    Oh, dear, this was a discover-as-you-go project. I started with a small roller but ended up doing it free-hand with a 2" brush for the trunks and a 1" brush for the thinner branches. No drawing anything beforehand. Just started at the bottom with the trunks and thinned it out toward the top, adding branches at alternating heights.
    Thanks for asking!
