This was such a crazy week I didn't even have time to tell you that you about our living room/studio renovation. A few weeks ago my husband came up with a wonderful idea for my studio space, I was feeling very frustrated with the tiny space in the back of the dining area, every time I moved something fell, I couldn't find anything anymore, everything was tucked away under the table since the space needed to be presentable, after all it is where we entertain, and a lot!
Then there was the shelving issue in the living room, we were getting really sick of our Ikea shelving system that had moved with us for the last 12 years....it didn't really fit the space and they were getting slightly shabby, so he tied it all together, the Ikea shelves would move into the back of the dining room, my table was placed under the window (I now have the most amazing view of the garden) I bought loads of craft boxes and switched covers for a colorful look, everything has a place and purpose and I am soooo happy!! In the living room he built shelves that actually fit on both sides of the wood stove and go up all the way making the ceiling seem higher, we were also amazed how much fits into them, even the board games have a place!
So here are before and afters and loads of new photos of my studio space
