Well, I've decided to take my area back so I'm moving out of the room I'm currently in and back up to what will, once I'm all moved in, be my 'studio'. Studio, it just sounds good doesn't it??
Right now there is carpet up there. The plan is to pull out the carpet and either put down wood flooring or bamboo. Does anyone have any input on bamboo?? We have wood flooring in other rooms in the house which I am totally happy with but I've heard good things about the bamboo so if you have any suggestions/input PLEASE leave a comment. Once we decide on a flooring and get it in, Joe will install it, I can start moving my stuff up.
A dear friend of mine has a flower shop. She also sells antiques and I ran across this old dentist's cabinet the other day and just KNEW I HAD to have it. Check it out:
I just think it's super cool looking. Right now it's in the garage and as soon as I can I'm going to clean it up and get it ready. I'm trying to decide what to do though............
a. just clean it up and leave it looking aged
b. clean it up and re-paint it
c. clean it up and re-paint it to LOOK aged
I'm thinking I can either put 'specialty' markers or pens in these slots OR I can take the little insert out....I'll just have to see what works best for me there......
I'm not quite sure what I'd put in this drawer yet (above) though I'm SURE I'll figure SOMETHING out!! :)
... I'm HOPING my punches will fit in THIS drawer!!
This is just another shot from the side. I just LOVE the glass knobs. It's missing a few so I'm hoping I can either find some somewhere or maybe even just leave them...we'll see.......
I'm SO into the whole antique thing right now....I just LOVE old stuff.
A few summers ago when we went back to Connecticut I brought home a BUNCH of stuff that used to be my grandparents... like an OLD Victrolla that I'm also plannng on cleaning up. My idea is to take out the turn table part and use it for storage then the slots that are meant for records I plan on using for paper storage. I'm kind of also waiting for the weather to warm up a bit too. I'm not a huge cold weather fan so I think I'll be more motivated once the weather is warmer and I can work outside without freezing!
Any and all comments are welcome so feel free to leave one or two. I'm always open to ideas!!
