Quilting Studio Progress Update

The quilting studio work is slowly coming along. My son-in-law (who is doing all the work except the flooring and painting) works a full-time job and is doing this every other weekend and every other Friday. I'm amazed at how much he gets done each time he is here to work.

I got all the painting in the main room and the bedroom finished last week. I still have to paint the bathroom walls and bathroom cabinet. I have to finish that before the flooring is put down. Home Depot is coming on Monday to give me an estimate on the floor. What I'm hoping I can use is a product called Allure. It is a "floating, resilient plank flooring" that has the look of wood. It is 100% waterproof, which is a necessity for me in the basement (just in case).

This picture shows the "nook" in my quilting studio. I'm planning on putting some cabinets and shelves here. I want to put a small refrigerator under the countertop. I'm thinking I'll also locate my "coffee station" here too. I thought it was a good picture of the ceiling. I just love it--it looks really industrial and the light reflects off of it (which is an added bonus). As you can tell, there is still a lot of work to be done.
As for any quilting/textile projects I'm working on...the only thing I have worked on lately is my last UFO (unfinished object) for the UFO Challenge. It is due in November. I like a lot of quilting on my work, so I marked it with lots of quilting lines. Now, I'm not so sure how wise that was! It is just taking me "forever" to get it done.
