One of the most fun changes I've made to the studio was the valances above the patio door and the window. I have been wanting to change them out for a very long time so it feels so refreshing to have them done... and they're SO FUN! I apologize for the horrible BEFORE photos... I am still learning how to take good pics and the light coming in the door and window made for very bad images but you can still see the huge transformation!
THE PATIO DOOR...
BEFORE: moss covered board with leaves and dogwood flowers... slightly outdated!
AFTER: fun hand painted canvas banner valance with glass crystals
The tinselee twine I got at JoAnn Fabrics after Christmas sale... it was a perfect touch!
I've had these crystals forever... can't even remember where I got them!
Strung them with some new beads for the finishing touch.
ABOVE THE WINDOW...
BEFORE: pink and white striped fabric topped with dogwood branch...so glad it's gone!
AFTER: hand painted stripes on canvas banner valance with green plastic crystals
The only reason these are hand painted is because I couldn't find the right fabric!
Love these crystals... picked them up at a yard sale about 5 years ago...
they've been waiting for such a time as this!
AND THE DRAWING TABLE...
BEFORE: A mismatched disaster (partly due however to the project in progress!)
AFTER: replaced mismatch with a variety of white containers... simple and clean... love it!
Notice the reading glasses on the table which are now required attire while painting
and the bunny who will be hopping her way to you very soon as a color book page!
for allowing me to share my space with you!
I've just been having so much fun and it makes me smile to be able to invite you
into my creative space... bless you for coming!
I took photos of the process of painting my curtains and I'll be sharing those with you
in the next day or so. A friend shared a valuable tip with me that I'm excited
to be able to share with you. Looking forward to it!
God bless you and keep you...
in His love and for His glory.
