It's been such a long time since I've shown any photos of my studio! I've been meaning to do this for a while actually. Some of you may remember when I got a crazy hair one day and ripped out the carpet in this room on an impulse. Fortunately B was willing to help me install a wide plank floor using plywood over the weekend. (Original post here.) That was over a year ago! I still have one major project that I'd still like to do in this room and switch out the light fixture before I consider it 'complete' but this room has come a long way and I absolutely love it. I feel so lucky/fortunate/blessed, whatever word you want to use, to even have a space dedicated to creating... such a luxury for me. Honestly this is one of my favorite rooms just to be in.
Ready for some super ugly before photos taken in poor lighting with giant messes everywhere?
door desk we had in Texas...I still love it and it's a great size for this room.
At this point we had added the shelves, but I just couldn't get past the carpet...it was killing me. One day B said, "So rip it out already!" So the next day I did. Towanda!
B made the shelves with some walnut we scored for crazy cheap on craigslist and these ikea brackets spray painted gold. I have these threshold magazine holders and love them. I had planned to use a set of white Eams knock off chairs for the desk, but I'm really glad I have this office chair as well. We ordered it for B's desk, but it didn't fit and I'm so glad it worked out in my space because it's just a lot more comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. I found the giant compass through an online estate sale and it's perfect as both a representation of my work (I use a compass in a lot of my composition) and it looks like a letter A--the first initial in my name.
Thanks for checking out the studio! I always love seeing other peoples spaces and homes...hopefully you like seeing mine too.
