Remember I mentioned a wonderful Mother's Day present?
Well, here it is ... Don't you love it???
What? You're not getting goosebumps??
Well ... you THINK you're looking at a whopper of a mess ... but what you're REALLY seeing is ... drum roll, please ...
MY NEW STUDIO!!
YES! I'm ecstatic!! Our home has this "spare" room that we've gone around and around on for the past year - what to make it? We started to decorate and turn it into a guest room ... for about a week. Then, since homes in our area lack basements, (we're from northern states where homes have large basements and attics and one can amass unseemly amounts of stuff) we decided it would be more useful as a storage/work area. Well, every month it became more "storage" and less "work." So, for Mother's Day, my husband offered me the space to make into a studio!!! We spent that whole Saturday moving boxes and industrial shelving out. Believe it or not, these photos were actually taken after that! Yup, it was bad. I have a long way to go to have a fun & functional room, but I'll get there!!
For me, it was the PERFECT Mother's Day gift! PS: I was also treated to a delicioso homemade chocolate souffle with fresh creme and raspberry sauce. (photo taken before they remembered the sauce! :-) )
Please send me any fun work space ideas you have, storage tips and tricks and I'll post glimpses of my Big Project progress along the journey!!
