My office/studio/craft room was the very last room to get unpacked. And by that I mean we had done painting in rooms before I even unpacked a box in here.
When we moved in, it looked pretty much exactly like that except without all the files. The desk and chair were left with the house, as were those little tables, which will be good for outside. 😉 It didn’t look that neat for long though, because this was the room where most of the boxes went. Between crochet and candles, I had more stuff for this room than we all had for any other. Then of course there was all my other craft supplies which, admittedly, I haven’t even opened yet.
Then I finally got around to painting it, and it became less messy (because everything inside got moved to the living room!)
Then it got painted (there are six walls in this room. That wasn’t fun), and Mr. Frenchie replaced those horrible mini blinds with some sweet cordless shades. While it’s still a work in progress, I hope you’ll enjoy what I’ve set up so far.
Walking in you get a fresh dose of yarn. That part is temporary, but it’s a spare shelving unit I had hanging around and for now, it works. In the basket there are my squares for the 2014 Moogly Crochet-A-Long. Anyone else doing it? I’m 7 (yes. SEVEN) squares behind, but I will catch up!
Those WIP bags are hanging from old curtain hooks that (I have a feeling) will be very reluctant to come off the window frame. I’m taking full advantage of them until I get my yarn corner the way I want it.
I had finally gotten a shelving unit for our candles! The ones I had used in the apartment became our pantry, and I needed a solution quick! I suppose 3 weeks isn’t exactly quick, but a trip to The Container Store landed me with that awesome 6 shelf iron unit. I love it.
I was super happy that the seller let us have this desk and chair. It’s super roomy and I’m able to fit a lot on it. I got clever and made it L shaped by adding my shipping cart and yarn table to the ends of it 🙂
One of my favourite items ever. A Rurouni Kenshin Okita Soushi action figure. It took me ten years to get my hands on him. We have since become great friends.
That magnetic strip is amazing. $4.99 (I think) at The Container store. It came with the 4 round magnets and then I bought a set of 6 clips for another $7ish. I’ll definitely be going back for more.
And there you have it! The studio so far! It’s now a super comfortable environment for crochet, writing, and business-y things. 🙂
Thanks for reading and stay inspired!
