Happy Home Tour Wednesday! I am excited to tour of my studio space with you today. The photo above is the exact view that I see from my office desk. This room is jam packed with photo props, craft materials, sewing projects and everything I need to create my daily posts. It is organized chaos, just enough of both to bring out the inner muse. The studio is a larger room attached to my office as you can see in the photo below. It has a wonderful bay window with North light that I utilize for my photography. Just like the entryway, one of the doors leading into this room had been removed, so to maximize the space I inserted another hollow core door into the door jam and painted it with chalkboard paint. I love the visual and well as the practical use of this large chalkboard. Take a look at the photo tour and I will share the details at the end of this post.
BIG PHOTO TABLE: You may recognize this from many of my photos since this is the surface that I shoot a lot of the post on. I found this at Monticello Antiques here in Portland and it was a steal. ROUND TABLE: This 70’s era oak table was passed to me by its original owner. It did get a Chalk Paint® makeover in Old White to match my white on white look of the space. WHITE VINTAGE CHAIRS: These are Craigslist find that also had an Old White Chalk Paint® makeover. BOOK SHELF: The original bookshelf was a thrift store find and after a few different paint colors, ended up with this white and aqua combo. I love the look of this bookcase. STORAGE DRAWERS: These are Ikea Alex drawer units. I stacked two without their rolling wheels to save space and used the third for the sewing table. I personalized them with customized labels from this post. TEAL STEP STOOL: You may remember my before and after photos of this vintage stool from this post. SEWING TABLE: This is a hollow core door with the Ikea trestle on one end and the Alex drawer unit on the other. PROP SHELVES: This wall of shelves is the Gorm from Ikea which I painted white. I did add a few extra shelves for all of the smaller pieces. ENZO’S BED: This is a DIY project that I did just last night. I filled the vintage crate with stuffing, made a custom bed to fit the top with a lush polar fleece and grey home decor fabric. To finish the look I stenciled his name onto the front of the crate. He is loving his little bed. So that is my studio tour. Let me know if there is anything else you would like details on. Hope this inspired you to go get your creative on! ~ Lia
