I'm so excited to share my new creative space with everyone. It's actually the same place, I've just given it a bit of a face-lift and added a great piece of furniture made my by Hubby. I've been wanting a work station with lots of work space and storage, and Dustin has definitely made my wishes come true.
Now I must share that finding the perfect spot for this beast of a table was not the easiest feat. Apparently planning the layout of a room in your head doesn't seem to work so well when the room in your head is larger than the actual room you have to work with. (I don't even know if that phrase made sense).
Anywho, after five different ideas and an almost melt down, the Hubby and I finally figured out how everything could work in harmony in my little space. It works perfectly under my uber-organizer.
My Hubby also made this fantastic little shelf that sits wonderfully on top of the table. It was one of his "I-was-bored-and-wanted-to-play-in-my-shop" projects. It just so happened to be a perfect notion/accessory shelf for my studio. Funny how things work out that way.
Buttons anyone? No, you're eyes are not playing tricks on you. That is a one gallon jar of vintage buttons.
In order to make the shelves durable and of course cute for the station, I found this fabulous vintage-style strawberry printed oilcloth from this great oilcloth seller. I love the pop of color it adds to the bright white. I haven't covered the top yet, because I'm eventually going to cover the top with cutting mats.
On to the rest of the studio...
Here's what I like to call "The Machines." Dun-dun-DUUUN. Ok, it's not that dramatic. It just so happened that my computer and sewing machine ended up in the same corner and they're both machines.
Every studio must have adorable pin cushions. My most fabulous Mom made both of them for me. You can find the turtle here.
My ever-growing stash of fabric-happiness.
So there ya have it folks. Hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
