My Studio

My studio has been changed a few times,and it may be changing once again.

I won’t dare show you what it looks like today,because it is a creative space and I have a little mess from my last project I need to straighten up.

I also unfortunately spilled milk paint on my carpet,and it won’t come out.

Trying to figure out what to do,but here are some photos of my last room makeover.

Joining Karen at My Desert Cottage Where Bloggers Create.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That is the other door my friend Kris from Junk Chic Cottage gave me!

I originally had it in my daughters room.

We were thinking of making a chalkboard door out of it.

But it never happened……and I am glad it didn’t!

It makes a perfect backdrop for my mannequin.

She is a little revealing….I may have to fix that!

That cute chalk sign was a gift from Kris too,I thought it would make a nice white lace cottage sign.

Now I am sure you noticed the curtains have changed.

I found some Laura Ashley curtains while out thrift shopping.

I was not sure what I would do with them originally but I loved the roses.

They were a little too bright for me so I used Rit color remover twice.It did tone it down but was still a little too bright for me.

After looking at them I noticed I could faintly still see the fabric on the other side.

So I hung these up inside out,and I cute all the fufu ruffles off.

I do like ruffles but these were a little much for me in this room.

Since this is my studio craft room and my space I figured I could go a little crazy with my flowers.

I like keeping my roses and hydrangeas,this is the room they are dried.

I found this old stand that was a broken lamp and just use it for hanging my flowers while they dry.

Most everything else stayed the same.

I just moved a few things and added this sweet painting.

This screen is changed often.

I like adding what ever inspires me.

Old photos,ribbons from packages I receive or artwork.

Suitcases stacked on top of one another are decorative but also serve as a function to store bit of fabric.

That white truck serves a purpose holding paper scrapes and packing material.

I am always picking up lace scraps while out treasure hunting.

This lace is not only pretty to look at in this two tiered basket but is often used for crafts or for wrapping packages.

My brushes get allot of use.These are a few of my older ones I keep on hand for painting those pieces that have lots of nooks and crannies.I don’t mind if these get a little misshapen.

I have a more changes coming so stay tuned…..

    Anne,
    I love your creative space and so happy you have a nice home for the door I gave you. It looks awesome with your mannequin. Love how the light comes into your creative space too. So bright and cheerful to create. I will be posting my creative space tonight after Spotlight runs. Have a great week end.

    Anne,
    It is always a joy to tour any space in your house. I love all the white with faint touches of color.

    I love everything about your creative space! I can’t wait to see the changes. I love dress forms! I have a very plain mannequin that I need to do something with to make it look vintage.

    Enjoyed the tour. such a calm creative space. So different from my brightly colored office yet I really do like it. I like your idea of the framed screen rather than a cork board. Just wondering how you keep things attached to it. I enjoyed my visit to your creative space today.

      Thank you Diane.Since it is a screen I just use vintage brooches to keep things up.The pin just inserts into the screen and it looks pretty too :-)

    Well, it is lovely already so I cannot imagine what is coming, but I am certain it will be beautiful. I can’t wait to see.

    Such a pretty room, Anne, but I’m not surprised since your whole house is so pretty! : ) Bummer about the paint on the carpet. There’s nothing that will take it out? It looks like a nice size room to create in, too. Wish I had just a little bit more room, but I guess I’d always be saying that no matter how big it was!

      Thank you Kathy! I know a total bummer for sure.I have tried a couple of things already but it really grabbed and it’s red…UGH!
