I woke up this morning sore in places I didn’t even know existed. I guess I have a muscle on the top of my foot that decided it was gonna introduce itself to me today.  It has started sending shooting pains through my legs all day in apparent attempt to get my attention. Well hello foot muscle…..piss off now please.

The project is done at least. It’s finished, completed, and WAYAAYYAYAY different.

Here are the befores:

And AFTER:

Ok so regardless if you love it or hate it….you have to appreciate the time it all got done in.

Friday: phone call…….” Hi Amber do my studio in one week”…..ok sure.
Sat & Sun: Brainstorm and cry at the thought I may fail miserably.
Monday: Go shopping around the entire city of Los Angeles. I went to tons of thrift and vintage stores, as well as some hidden antique haunts I love in the sketchiest parts of town.
Tuesday: Back out shopping, this time in less life threatening stores.
Wednesday:Finally help arrives. Me and my amazing design assistant extrordinare Amanda were on the ultimate mission to get it all bought and ready for delivery on Friday. Today we demoed in the studio and ripped down the monsterous ugly storage cabinet. Here I had the help of my contractor who also happens to be my talented brother. Then Amanda and I were back out shopping to get all the finishing touches. There was a lot of shit left to do and we somehow pulled it right out of our asses and made it happen.
Thursday: Another full day of crazy. Rocky my painter, painted all the walls and trim……{So on a side note, we painted the gallery wall a terra cotta color from benjamin moore…and no joke it dried to look like a salmon milkshake, so Amanda and I stayed and painted the whole wall over again. It was the suckiest part of the whole process but we made it work and all is well that ends well}.
Friday: Furniture deliveries are coming today and we were supposed to be out of the studio so the band could come in and start working……This did not happen cause at 11:30pm we still were not finished.
Saturday: Stain dining table, put in new desk, scramble for accesories, do shelves, organize bathroom, kitchenette, and back patio. 4:30 PM DONE
We were literally working almost every night till 10…friday we stayed till 11:30. I saw G like 15 minutes the whole week which made me an extra crazy lunatic.
