Finished Studio pics & giveaway win from Where The Grass is Greener...


Finished Studio!

I'm happy to say that my studio is finished (as finished as any craft room can be)!  My hubby did a great job making my desk, framing the pegboard, & adding the shelves; he wanted plenty of storage for me (including closet...see below).  I wanted to make it pretty and functional; accent on the pretty! Someday I would love to paint the walls, but that just isn't gonna happen any time soon.  Let me give you a tour...


I covered the ugly stencils!

The finished scissor holder & jar with antique laces.




Love my glitter!
Had to cover up the contents of these bins.  What do you think?
The opposite side of the room is our office space.  I'm not ready to show that!!  I also have a walk in closet that is full of shelves that my hubby put in & I have filled them, of course.  I have lots of small drawer units, plastic recycled jars that I spray painted the lids spa blue, plastic containers, & whatever else I could find to hold things.  Here's a few pics...

My assortment of glassware.
More bins...

Some scrapbooking stuff...
 

Now on to my giveaway win...

I received my package from Renee of "Where The Grass Is Greener" blog.  The Courage collage/plaque is just fabulous & after seeing it, my hubby said it was manly & really liked it.  Renee said that with 3 boys, she had planned it to be just that; manly & handsome.  I must agree it is "handsome".  Beautiful work, Renee!  Thanks so much to Renee for having a giveaway & we will enjoy the plaque for years to come.    
I put it in our bookcase on a stand.

I love the saying!

oh yeah! Your studio looks so organized! I really like what you did to cover the little drawers, very cute. Now you have to messy it up and make something fun! I, on the other hand, finally listed my house and have to be neat and clean..you remember that right!!

You are a girl after my own heart, I have all of my stuff in baskets and pegs on a slate wall like they use in stores. It is so functional, yours is perfect!

Your hubby did a wonderful job on your studio, but can a girl ever have enough storage? HA!

Cindy,
You are so organized! I would never think of showing my messy craft area. =) I clean it, then it just gets messed up again.
