A Much Needed Change

by Cristina Hurley of Cristina Hurley Jewelry Design

I had a very busy and rough couple of weeks, which culminated in a big craft sale which was a bit of a disappointment. The next day, I decided that I needed to change things up a bit in my shop/studio.

The easiest and most effective way to revamp a space is to paint... so I decided to paint half of this wall with paint I had been using to paint the shop. I painted and then decided to add some custom hand painted swirls...

I love swirls, they are organic and fun to do freestyle. No need to mark or measure, I just began swirling out from the straight edge I had painted the wall up to.

The swirls are all over my shop in different ways, so I thought they would look nice and add a bit of whimsy to my decor.

Cool! the swirls are all done! they only took a couple of hours or so. The paint dried quickly, so I began to hang up what had been on the wall already. In this case, a display with some jewelry in it.

All done! All I had to do was put everything back, and I decided to rearrange the furniture and displays. I think it looks nice!
And that's just one wall!
I made changes in the entire shop.
Stay tuned for the next chapter...
The window wall!


  1. It looks wonderful Cristina! Can't wait to see the rest of the changes.

  2. Very cool changes ... amazing to see what a difference can be made in such a short amount of time!
