My Own Studio Space

I finally get to have a studio space all on my own, YEY!!!!  You have no idea how amazing that is.  I had an area in our unfinished basement that I never went to as it was away from the family and the lighting wasn’t great.  After having a chat with my man about possibley having a room upstairs with better lighting and closer to the kids, he totally agreed.  I love him, SO supportive.  We are building Milah (our oldest) a room in the basement and shifting the girls around upstairs so I can take over one of the rooms.  Super excited.  I have a few things I have been collecting in hopes that my studio would soon come to fruition.  I bought these old paint brushes at an antique place out in Wakefield thinking I would one day turn them into a chandelier.

I googled paint brush chandelier to see if I could find something to give you an idea of what I was thinking and the only thing that came up that had any relevance was a picture on Instagram of Kelly Rae Roberts’ studio.  I found that a little funny as I recently took her online class Flying Lessons and have become part of this amazing group of women who have become part of my every day (on-line) life.  I was hoping to do something similar with mine.

I found this antique egg thing-a-ma-bobber at a cute shop out in Lakefield (near Peterborough).  I honestly have no idea what it was used for.  Many have speculated but no one is quite sure.  Almost looks like something you might use at Easter.  If any of you know, could you please fill me in?  I am hoping to put some little dishes into it and use for storage of some kind.  Maybe buttons.

My “Create” painting will finally have a home.  I am still deciding if I want to paint a couple walls teal or orange.  Both of which are in the painting.

I loved the print on this duvet cover I found at Ikea.  I am going to turn it into curtains.

I think I might move my teak chair into the studio as well.  It has been with me for almost two decades and has been across the country and in every apartment/home I have ever had on my own.  My first real investment in furniture.  It came from Indonesia and I just had to have it.  I gave up a shopping trip to Edmonton when I lived in Yellowknife in order to buy it.  Now that is dedication to the finer things, hahaha.  Especially for an 18 year old.  No one ever sits in it where it is anyway so I am sure it won’t be missed.  It is made for the vertically challenged as it is lower to the floor then most chairs.  It was meant for me :)

My cousin and her daughters are coming in from out of town to have a craft day and make Christmas ornaments tomorrow.  I shall share the fruits of our labour when we are done.

    Congratulations on having your own studio soon. It’s wonderful when the kids grow up and we get to shift the rooms around. Enjoy. I look forward to hearing all about and seeing pictures of your studio. ;)

    I love your thing-a-ma-bobber… that’s a word I probably use too. lol

    Merry Christmas. xo

    Amazing Renee! Can’t wait to see the finished result! Also – the thingamabobber appears to be a dessert rack – a lady in my office has a similar one, and she puts cupcakes and small cakes on tiny plates on the holders! Very cute :), will look amazing!

      Thanks lady. It isn’t a desert rack. I actually have one of those. It is hard to see from the picture but it is a vintage egg holder as each of the wire racks fit an egg perfectly. It is driving me crazy not knowing what it was for, haha
