Happy Workspace Wednesday! I (Toni From) hope you all are having a great week and enjoying summer. I am sharing a few glimpses into my studio space today with y’all and I hope you like it.
My room isn’t super big, it’s about 11 x 13 feet, but plenty big enough to be creative. It has huge windows covering a large portion of the left wall in this photo. The light is amazing, but it can also make it difficult to photograph this space. I should also mention that it is in our home’s “intended dining room.” We really aren’t that fancy, and didn’t need to use it as a dining room that gets walked by and never used, so I snagged it for myself. Luckily my Mister is totally okay with that. With the room being situated immediately to the left of our foyer, I try to keep it semi-picked up most of the time. This is how it generally looks unless I am working on a bigger project and then the entire white desk in the back is covered and overflowing in crafty goodness. I am an epically messy crafter in the middle of a project, but I am also a good picker upper. 🙂
The wall to the right of my room when you walk in has some picture ledge shelves from IKEA (of course.) I rotate different items onto the shelves and I just recently added these metal letters. They just jumped in my cart at Michael’s basically.
This is the back left corner of my space, and probably my favorite spot in my room. I keep all kinds of mixed media here, and I store adhesive, Project Life, and keep my Elle’s Studio monthly kits in the drawers. The August kit is super cute, you’ll just have to trust me on that one.
I also like to knit. I started last fall, and really love it. I haven’t knitting anything since March, but I started this project late last week. I have found knitting to be the perfect activity to do when you are watching tv with the family at night.
That brings us back to the room as a whole. The black table is a 3 x 4 foot island that was handmade by an older gentlemen in our small town. It was made from reclaimed pine that was burned and then sealed. I love it. It is insanely heavy, but a fun addition. I stand up and work on a lot of my projects, so it has come in super handy.
I hope you liked visiting my space today and maybe got some ideas for your own space (big or small) in the process. Have a great week! -Toni
