Welcome to my studio! I have been having so much fun creating my little she shed for my studio and work space. The building was purchased in December and we began construction in January. You can read more about the early stages, here. I am sure I will be adding and changing things around. I am still looking for the perfect pieces to add to the bare spots. I still haven't finished moving in some of my supplies and don't have everything organized they way I am wanting. I will be doing some long over due purging of stuff. It's a work in progress, but it is getting there.
Step inside and let's begin the tour. This old dresser got a new coat of paint and is perfect for more storage. The rusty shelf is from an antique wood cookstove. My Prince Charming spied this at one of the shows we were at and snagged this beauty up. (He is getting pretty good at finding treasures.) I also plan to use this for more storage as the doors open on this. The tool box was found at a local flea market and received a new look and will be used to hold my metal stamping tools and stamps. The old wooden create holds some old jars that I plan on using to put some bling in.
The worktable and area is set up on one end. I have added a velcro tableskirt to hide more storage.
The printers tray is hanging from a pulley and sits close by the work area to grab all my bling extras.
The old metal bins are perfect catch alls. I believe the vendor I purchased these from said they were from an old gas station.
Cabinets line the back wall for storage and provide a workspace for my printer and Cameo Silhouette. Shelf with baskets and buckets for more storage. Curtain rods hold my ribbon for easy access.
The vintage gate is going to be my dream and inspiration board. I have slowly been adding stuff to it, as I go along. A reminder to dream, paint color samples for the new paint line I just began to sell, extra burlap flowers so I can find them when I need them. A magazine from Where Women Create, cause a girl can dream that maybe one of these days.... Like I said a place to put dreams, inspiration and some catch all.
The jar lights were just put in this last week. Aren't they so cute hanging from the old weathered barn wood and pulley?
Every girl needs a crown, right? I have this here for now but, I am not sure if it is going to be staying. I had been using in part of my vendor set up at shows and have sort of retired it, and it has found a home for now on the tall cabinets.
The screen door is mainly for decor purposes, however, I do use it at times for staging photos or hanging pieces on.
The sewing machine has found it's home in front of the window. I am keeping an eye out for the perfect little table to replace this old computer desk.
The area where I store paint is beside the sewing area. The old tool box holds paint that I don't use often while the cubbies hold the paint that I use the most. The old nail keg is holding cotton stems that I currently sell. The keg was previously holding my umbrella and camera tripod. The chicken nesting box fits perfectly in this space and I plan on also using it for storage. Although at the moment it is being guarded by the rooster.
This old chippy cabinet is one of my favorite furniture pieces. I totally love all the chippy goodness on it. I can also use it for storage. Although for now it is the home base for Pearl, the the chicken wire mannequin.
The chair has a special place in my heart as it was one of the first pieces I ever restored. The poor thing was half burried in dirt and long forgotten. She just needed some TLC and a little bit of charm. She has found a home in the corner and is the perfect spot to sit and do some hand stitching or just day dreaming.
We are now to the other end of the studio. The brick wall and sliding barn door hide my closet.
Last is my desk where I do the book work.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting my studio. I hope you will come back and see updates, as they are made.
PS - a friend just told me that My Dessert Cottage is hosting a link party "Where Bloggers Create". How fun is that?!?!? I am totally linking up and going to visit all the fun spaces where everyone gets their creativity on. Hope you will check them out, too. Here is the link..
