Encaustic workshop with Mimi Muhlenberg

The first of many workshops to be offered at Gallery on Park went off without a hitch. Taking place in our beautiful side garden it was a lovely day, with lovely people making lovely art. What could be better! Keep an eye on our Events link for upcoming workshops and events.

Ticking away items from my list of things to do until opening day. Just 2 weeks to go!

The last few weeks progress summed up with photos.       xo martha

Week #2

For the first part of the week I installed a shiny new floor which I totally love!

For the second part of the week, I installed a new work sink that will be perfect for cleaning brushes and paired it with what I like to call my wine cooler. 



Next up....a little more demo and then some painting!




Week #1

On July 1st, I received my key to Gallery on Park. Welcome to The Renovating.

I am excited as I visualize and dream of what is to come, but also trying to figure out how I didn't notice the drop ceiling that needs some serious TLC. :0

With a little help from my friends, old signage came down, paint was stripped and my front door got a face lift!

While cleaning out old filing cabinets, I found a few remnants from long ago businesses that used to inhabit this space.  Victorian Design Studio was here when we would physically cut, paste and copy to make signage.

Today was demo day and I cleared out the back hallway which will serve as my storage area.

I am not a slap on a coat of paint and call it a day kind of girl because if I did that I wouldn't get to use my power tools. Whee.....demo is fun!

This coming week, I plan to prep, prime and paint and install the floor in the hallway and bathroom. Usually it takes me 3X longer to renovate than I expect. Fingers crossed and wish me luck! xo
