Not me personally but my studio!
That's right I am finally going to get my studio decorated. It is the only room in the house that has never been decorated, heck, it doesn't even have curtains! The main reason I never did anything in here was because I didn't know what I wanted to do. I really wanted a "pretty" room but I also needed a functional room. And I really needed a place to work, so I just put everything in there and just waited. It has almost been 4 years since we moved in and I am done waiting!
So this is my take on "pretty". Lots of glass jars, beautiful black & white metal baskets, a black & crystal chandelier. And NO visible plastic storage!
So now you've seen my studio as it was, and you've seen my new containers, and you know I'm painting. Do you want to know what else I'm doing in here???
I am going EXTREAM in here - ALL BLACK & WHITE!!!! That's right, no color at all! I (okay, Gary) am painting 3 of my walls black and one of them white. I can't wait!!!! I am making my window treatments and my chair cushions myself using a black & white damask. My friend Judie's husband is building me a built in counter with custom sized cubbies in it for all of my storage needs. In fact I am meeting him at Home Depot tomorrow to pick out the final items for the built in (it will be going wall to wall under the window and I will be getting rid of the bookcase). I am adding some beadboard to the backs of my hutches, pretty trims and details around the room but keeping everything either black or white. I typically would not be this brave all on my own but about 10 months ago I found this gal's room and fell in love!!!! As I looked at her space I kept thinking "how can I do this in my space"? I certainly cannot have the square footage she has or the furniture, but I can adopt her color scheme and the over all feel of the room. Right???
Well, wish me luck and I will be back soon with some after pictures. But I will be away for a couple of days, I will have to tear down my computer tomorrow night so we can start 1st thing in the morning Monday.
Enjoy your what's left of your weekend!
