Studio Photos

If you have been wondering where I have been, this is it... I finally painted my new studio space, and this time, I took my time. Only that which I truly need, love, and use is here.

Quick tour.. the cutting table under the eaves is set up on bed risers so it is 6" higher than a standard dining table. (I'm short.. so that works fine) The skirt covers a fabulous mess of junk.. maybe I'll show that later. The 'sewing' table is a table we had on our screened porch. I covered it in a white damask vinyl cloth to keep things bright.


I still have space on my shelves to fill but that's a good thing. And, yes, I'm loving my Laura Ashley ironing board cover! It has so much more padding than the cheap ones that come on the boards. The clothe hanging is my cover clothe so adhesives, etc.. don't get on everything.


The clock above once had a tacky puppy dog face on it. The outside color was perfect though, so I took it apart and replaced the face with something much more 'me'.


All of the fabulous, vintage knitting needles my mother in law gave to me. I love having them in a tall glass container so I can see their colors..

More storage.. are you figuring out my color scheme yet? :)

Vintage notions.. I love the look and they are just as functional as 'new' ones.

More storage.. the tins hold a medley of supplies.. I really need to label them though, as I have to open both whenever I am looking for something.
This studio space feels so different than the rest of the house. My goal was bright, fun hues that inspired. I hope they inspire you too..

What a gorgeous space! I love the airy bright colors. Such a good idea to change the clock face, I would be afraid it would fall in a million pieces, but it looks so pretty:>)

I'm so happy to read that you have a new space and are creating more again. Your work is too fab not to. I love the colors and your whole house could be featured in many a mag and loads of HGTV shows. Love it! Hope you are doing well and to chat soon! xoxo Rhonda...

What a wonderful light working space. Love the colour, its the same as my office. I too had the idea of making a curtain for my work table. It is a great idea for hiding all of the stuff you don't want to be on view.

Oh Abbie it looks so comfi and 'light', for the inspiration to spill out. Did you know blue is the color of inspiration/creativeness? I just read that somewhere not to long ago. Enjoy everytime you are up there! And the clock! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing your Studio Space.
Smiles, Anke ;)
