Are you guys tired of hearing about my studio yet? I wouldn't blame you. Sadly, it may be some time (or never) before I'm tired of talking about it. I didn't want to bore you today with lots of detail pictures but you can count on seeing those sprinkled around the blog for awhile. By the way, I'm in love with this doorknob that my sweetie surprised me with while I was out of town last month! I'm now daydreaming about replacing every knob in this house.
Here's a quick before of the room from the day we were here on our house hunt.
This is the view from the door. The closet is to the right and a daybed to the left. A reader had asked if the table in the closet was really going to be useable for crafting. I have set up the tables for different uses and I think that is one of the things I love the most about this room now. I have a sewing area, a work area and a creative area. So far it is working great. I am on the hunt for a nice wood rolling chair to use at these 2 work tables.
Here's the latest incarnation of my inspiration board. I like to redo it about once a year. It always makes me happy and inspires me endlessly.
Note the new light fixture. I'm so in love with it. We put one just like it in the hallway upstairs.
Until Maddie leaves home, this room also serves as a part time guest room. Some day that daybed will be out of here and will be replaced with a cozy reading chair and more storage. It's not like I'm counting the days. But...
Here you see how the closet works with the rest of the room. The metal shelves in the niche are very functional and give me tons of storage. I think I may curtain at least some of the shelves. I'm going to be giving that 'ol sewing machine a workout very soon with plans for pillows for the bed, window treatments, a sewing machine cover and a few other surprises.
This space is my dream come true. I'm not an extravagant girl, no expensive jewelery or Mcmansions for me. Just having this space to surround myself with pretty things feels like such a luxury and helps me to live contentedly.
I really wish you could come play in this space with me. It's the only thing that could make it better.
