I've been wanting to share these photos with you for so long... thanks for your patience!!
BEFORE: messy and cluttered
AFTER: Bright and cheery! I painted the toppers for my shelves a brighter cleaner green. And Michael built the simple metal rod hanger for me to clip my art to. While I'm working on a book, I need to be able to see the other pages so I stay inspired and on track and this works great!
BEFORE: dull and dreary... and notice how I just tacked my paintings to the wall!!
AFTER: Remember the photo of the fabric way back on February 26th? I used part of it to cover the baskets, boxes and magazine holders. Having them all color coordinated brings a sense of order, unity and calm to the room. I still have to add all the labels so I can remember what is in them but that's coming! I'm also thrilled that I got a new cutting mat that covers the entire cabinet top. The old one was over fifteen years old!
The painting here is a Kim Poloson original... she doesn't live far from me and I love her art!
I've had this grated metal basket (not sure what to call it really?) for a long time. This seems to be a perfect way to display smaller paintings and collectibles. Still working on the clothespins! Do you like my Easter bunnies? Now the question is... will I be able to get the collection ready before Easter???
I love these 2 vintage cards my sweet daughter Michelle shared with me... aren't they just the cutest?!?!?! I'm covering some of the clothespins with ribbon but may just paint the others.
Below is a close up of one of the clips I'm using to hang my art from the steel rod display Michael made for me... oh yes... and a close up peek of one of my new paintings.
I am BLESSED to have friends like you and I hope, in some small way, my studio transformation might be an inspiration to you to allow God's creativity to flow in you and through you... brightening up your life and a spot in your own home, office, studio, or garden!
Be blessed my friends... love you all!
