I love to feature artists' workspaces because I love to see them myself. So I figured, why not share mine? This is just a peek as I am still re-organizing my space. I will share more in a future post. This space is where I work on small projects, projects with detail, and it is where I store everything that is for sale in my shop.
my teacup collection
I have a space the size of a typical bedroom in the downstairs of our home. Because it is downstairs, I had to use light, bright colors - mostly light green and white. I love my white tab-top curtains - so simple and bright. I love the shadow through the curtains on sunny days from the lavendar plant outside the window. I put the same curtains over the closet where I store the items I'm selling in my shop.
Craft rooms/studios/office spaces easily get cluttered, like my slat back chair which is currently storing magazines that I need to go through. No worries. I do have another chair elsewhere in the room that I can actually sit in. I love this chair that I found at an estate sale for $5.00! It goes great with the old desk I got online for free. I love bargains! I tried to keep the decor simple, yet still welcoming and inspiring. I found this great wicker shelf with drawers for storage for $1.00, but I should have taken pictures. It was a serious 1970's orange. I took care of that with a couple of coats of white paint.
I love this wooden box I found at a sale for $1.00. I thought I heard the woman wrong when she told me it was a dollar, then I happily scooped it up! It is more seating and when opened...
It is storage for my records. I love my records and I have to have music!
I love listening to music while I work. My husband bought me this "vintage-looking" record player that can also play my cd's. It sits on the table where I work.
