Winterizing the Studio

The recent trips to IKEA have resulted in new curtains in the living room, dining room, master bedroom, downstairs bedroom, and office.  The only rooms left are the kitchen (under planning at this moment) and my studio. 

This was a little hard to do.

These dark blue curtains were re-purposed from the master bedroom.  My studio in on the ground floor (split level house), on a concrete slab with 30 year old sliding glass doors to the backyard.  After last year’s Arctic winter, the reality is that the studio needs more insulation on these doors than just the vertical blinds.  Since we already had the curtains & they have life in them yet, it was a no brainer to just use them in the studio.

The hard part?  The dark color.  No light is getting through these things when they are drawn and they need to be drawn to be effective.  Oh, I’ll be able to open them on balmy, sunny winter days but this is what I am facing – a dark blue wall.  There may be more brooder lamps in my future.

Maybe making all these winter preparations will ward of the Polar Vortex this year!
