Now I have plenty of room for my sewing machines, fabric, art supplies and everything else. It is still very much a work in progress. I am looking forward to putting up some Jackie Von Tobel drapery hardware from Helser Brothers soon so keep tuned.
I did this room on a serious budget of $100. I used all existing furniture that I had. ( Yes, I can be a pack rat and had a lot of stuff in my garage including some old furniture I had made for my husbands office that he outgrew) The only thing I bought was a few gallons of white paint and a couple of unfinished doors to serve as tabletops. I slapped a coat of white paint on everything, including the floor, and called it a day!
My favorite piece in the studio is a rolling cart that my sister Trudi gave to me. I can roll it out into the center of the room and walk around it 360’ or I can tuck it neatly under my larger table so it’s out of the way. I am also filling the walls with my kids art that they did as little ones. I would much rather look at that than anything else.
I have tons of storage plus a huge closet that is far to messy to show you. I’m sure I will fill it up in no time. My office helpers above are hard at work fighting with each other! Just like the real thing…..
This is what they can usually be found doing.
I love working in the new room. It is so bright and sun filled and most of all it’s a constant reminder of my beautiful girl. I left her yellow paint just as it was, warts and all. It makes me smile every time I walk in there.
You would think with all this new studio space that my old office would be perfectly organized and never messy but here is my desk today. It’s just as crazy as ever but that’s how I like it.
