My Studio

I'm sure you all remember my recent post about inspiring art rooms, well I finally have my studio all made up with pretty things and now it's worthy of sharing with all of you.
I don't have any expensive and amazing things like new furniture and storage units, but it is a beautiful room any way. I just made do with what I had already. I used somethings in different ways than they were meant to be used. And I painted the room with left-over paint from my daughters room makeover. I rearranged the furniture and now my drafting table is right next to the window for good light for painting and drawing, and the sewing/crafting table, with the inspiration board over it, is on the other wall so you can see it right when you walk in the room.
It really turned out nice. In fact it surprises me, every time I go in, how great I feel when I'm in there. It's really a great space to work and be creative.

To the Right,
is the inspiration board, It is made from an old room divider that we never ever used. If you look close you can see that is is made of mesh wire, that you can see right through, so it couldn't really divide any rooms very well. When I realized that I could use clothes pins to hold inspirational photos and things on it, it became my inspiration board.
I really Love it! It's pretty heavy, so I had Trent make sure and screw it into the studs on the wall.

is the shelf that Trent made me a long time ago, that I am now using to store books and stack all of my hat boxes. I never realized I had so many till I arranged them all in one place.
I also used my little daisy pedestal to set come cute dollies on, and a wooden painted L. I'm really enjoying it a-lot! Have a happy Friday I'm off to play in my pretty studio.

LJ you and I are kindred spirits in some ways. When we want something we do everything we can to make it happen. Only you are cooler than me because you are creative with what you already have. I love this. I originally thought it was another pic from you inspiration file. Way to go sis!..Oh and I want to see Lizzy's cool room make-over too.
