My "Mini" Studio.

One of the items we included in our wish list for this new house was space for a true Art Studio. Not the corner of a room but an authentic, dedicated, "get messy" room. We built it in but for the sake of the budget, we chose to not completely finish it at this time. Hopefully by spring we'll be able to continue the final pieces. For now, I've put my art projects on hold. But it's been driving me crazy so my dh helped me put together our "Mini Studio" this past week. And here it is:

What's this? A corner of a room?

Not ideal and not what we envisioned.

But for now, this view will have to do!

A spot not being used and an easy choice.

I love the airiness and lightness of this corner.

A place for my fabric, lace and embellishments.

A sweet, floral lamp that I bought from a lovely lady,
for the tidy sum of just $15. A bit Laura Ashley. Love it!

Pretty shelf for some favorite treasures.

Shells gathered from our most recent trek to our
little piece of Heaven ~ Salt Spring Island.

My tray of projects and pieces to work on. The tiny
framed print is an original oil painting. 

I'm very excited to have a spot to create art, to reflect on life and in my pursuits. When the true Art Studio is all ready and I move my stuff down the hall, I think I'll really miss this temporary abode. I can see some great things happening in this sunny and quiet spot. 

Do you have a spot in your home just for you?

My sewing room is 19x18 and is just never cleaned thoroughly. I have a huge Butterick pattern cabinet that holds notions and patterns. A bookcase holds plastic boxes of thread that I use on two commercial machines and two home machines. There is a dining table for a cutting table.

When it is time to wrap a gift, I use the dining table and can leave a mess if I am in a hurry.

What a nice studio - the light is good in there. I am sure over time you will get it just exactly as you want it but for now it almost already seems perfect!

Wonderful studio space! I am jealous.

That's an amazing size for a studio, PP! I'd love to see some pictures.

Chy said...

Thank you Cheapchick. It is a very bright and lovely, calm spot. Loving it!

Chy said...

Don't be jealous, Anne. We all have a spot somewhere!

Lovely! Yes, I have my little sewing nook in the living room and I just love it! I have a huge window and all the sun streams in... you can find me there most of the time! lol! It's my "happy place"! :)

When we were putting this spot together, I had actually thought of you Carla. I remember you shared a pic or two of your beautiful spot and I loved how you could look right out the window at the world. We have a window seat, so I can't put my little table right in the window but this view still works really nicely.

Have a great week!
