What a relief.....

Yay!! I am finally finished!! So here it is!! You have all been patiently bearing along with my complaints of my mess, so I wanted to share with you some before and after shots of my studio.

The BEFORE: Warning......Dangerous to view. I am a little embarrassed to post these first pictures. *blushing*



OK, a total disaster, I know.....AND NOW..........after 3 weeks of hard labor!!

My patterned paper is in the rolling carts under the table - organized by color. The rolling drawers are my embellishments also sorted by color.



My find at a used furniture store!! The perfect solution of display and storage! Please note the buttons and flowers all sorted by color! lol


I am going to make some tags to hang on the storage containers for easy access.


A separate table for my sewing so that I don't have to worry about cleaning off the paper first or Em spilling her watercolors across the table.


Well, I think it was worth it! Now to keep it in some semblance of order. Those of you that know me are probably laughing right now. ;D I am the messiest person so maybe that explains why I am so excited!

  7. Lucy, Lucy, Lucy....your first pictures are hiliarious, but I have to say I can relate right now to that! My time right now is spent scrapping and then clean up when I seem to get around to it!!! LOL...
    Do I spy a little Home Depot apron?? I bet Emma loves the workshops they offer, Marissa used to love them when she was little.
    I love how your room looks...it came out perfect! Where did you get that great farm table? I need one of those...I am hoping for my Grams old table to use in my scraproom eventually.
    Have a great week!

  35. the way your studio looked before is what mine looked like 3 days ago...i finally got so fed up and stopped being so lazy and started re-doing everything....its still up in the air a bit right now...but in a few days i know the outcome will be great...im actually going to take a look in some thrift stores to see if i can find some tables or shelves that i can paint/ transform into some storage ...but i love the outcome of your room..it inspires me to keep going..cuz sometimes it does get tiring..heh..
