Stuck in the Mud Pottery Studio Tour

stuck in the mud pottery studio tour
In April, I moved my pottery studio from my basement to a small building .5 miles from my home in the center of our small town. I needed a space with a lot of natural light to work out of but also it needed to be large enough to offer classes. Here is what the building looked like before I moved in (top) and what it looked like after (bottom).

All this space really needed was a good cleaning and lots of paint. The walls were all dark green, so the first thing I did was paint everything white. My husband made two large work tables that I covered in canvas and a third smaller table for my slab roller. I added ten white bar stools and two new Shimpo VL Lite wheels (that I love! They are so lite and quiet). I already own a Shimpo whisper and a Brent that I create my own work on. The new Shimpo wheels would be for teaching students.

When you first enter the space there is a small room directly to your right that I set up as a small storefront. I made the ladder shelf and the table is just an old door mounted on black pipe legs.
