Behind the Scenes: Studio Tour April 07 2015, 0 Comments

The first four years I spent printing letterpress were in either a warehouse studio or a garage, neither of which were climate controlled.  So to say I was ecstatic when my husband and I purchased our first home that included a basement studio for me is an understatement! 

The studio space is in our basement and needed a lot of TLC.  We pulled up the carpet, installed wood floors and shelving, built a desk and painted the entire space.  As a former interior designer, this was a dream to design a space that was inspiring and where I could let my creative juices flow.  Below are some before and after photos!
