New Art Studio: the "before" picture

You know how in movies, or Brady Bunch episodes, they will have a nerdy character who gets a makeover, revealing (surprise) the beautiful swan hidden behind horn rimmed glasses? In other words, if you wipe the dirt off of Eliza Doolittle's face, you get Audrey Hepburn. Isn't that cheating?

My new art studio has that same raw material (though you wouldn't know it from the outside). This means there is a good chance I will actually make it look worse, once I get my paws on it. Unfortunately, unlike Olivia Newton John at the end of Grease, my studio smells old and wet. If these were scratch-and-sniff pictures, you would smell the mildew trapped in that shiny floor. How can something so pretty be so stinky? Even so, the hope is to be fixed, up and running, with walls of work for the Vashon Island Art Studio Tour, December 2014. Ready, set, create.
