Writing and Craft Studio Reveal
Let's review the evolution of this room. Here's where I started when my son moved out. I love finding the absolute worst photos to show you!
I painted first. Most dramatic change for your buck every time.
Here's how it turned out after several months of trial and error. The counter height table makes it easy to work on projects while standing up and it's nice to have a separate sitting area so I don't have to move the laptop every time I want to use the table. The table can easily be moved aside to throw down a yoga mat so I can get my zen on. This is the only space in my house that gets morning light and I love to soak that up.
I kept the map wall, although I did consider taking them down and painting an accent color. With the new cleaner cottage look though it looks pretty awesome.
The easel in its desk position and office chair that got returned to the library.
My new reading and meditating space. Gone is the most uncomfortable piece of wicker ever created. This chair migrated from the den where it was replaced by a very large leather chair donated by my daughter and her husband.
I love this sign!
Wire globe over the writing desk.
Bulletin boards provided a handy place to store my funky yard stick.
Next week I'm going to have some serious time on my hands for the first time this year. I've got a bathroom that needs painting and a tired yellow hallway in desperate need of help. Lookout downstairs! You're next!
