That conversation took place over the weekend, you'd think the enthusiasm would have gotten me to do this sooner. Nope, I've been tired and sick people, don't you read my blog. If not you should be, I'm a talented writer. Didn't you see my award for best scribbler or something like that? So I finally got the bug up my butt to actually go upstairs and convert the loft into a usable office and arts and crafts shared space yesterday.
TAAAADAAAAAAAA!!! Here are the pictures of just my area of the loft, (sorry Boy I pretty much took over both desks, Mommy shares though.)
This is my office desk before I organized it. You can see how it would not be ideal for sewing because of the attached shelf in the back.
And this is how the office desk came out after I cleaned it all up. The Boy and I will share this desk. I rarely use this desk to do real "work" so it won't be a big deal for me to share.This was the Boy's desk kinda before I turned it into my sewing area. The shelf is just a mess from him pulling out arts and crafts and just not putting anything away. Kids! See that cute light brown thing under the desk, YUP that's my FREE SCORE from D the neighbor. Yeah, we both know, she ROCKS!! WELCOME to my new Sewing and Arts and Crafts station. You have to love "BINS and a LABEL MAKER" Everything has a place and is in it's place. The lamp is turned because it's drying a new salty water color I had decided to make while cleaning. Hey I told ya'll I have ADD I can't just clean and not do something else. Plus can you organize all your arts and crafts without coming up with some new arts and crafts idea? I can't! I just love how that worked out though using the top of the bookshelf as a space to dry my art. Oh and the cute hook I put on the wall to hang all my Quirkey bags!!
So A (my other neighbor) and I went Goodwill hunting yesterday. No not the movie, we went to the actual Goodwill. I was on a mission to find new treasures for my new Sewing/Arts and Crafts studio. Check out what I found, I couldn't believe I randomly found these items that actually matched. No they were not in the same area, I just got lucky. I'm smooth like that! How cute is this lamp? $5.99 and it came with a working light bulb. I love this lamp, absolutely love it. Check out those two things. I think they are candle holders, I don't know but now they are used to hold my sewing supplies. My pin cushion fits perfectly in that cup. Oh yeah and the frame, hello it matches perfectly to the cups, each one was only $2.99. I found 2 frames, double the score. I don't like the salty water color that is in the frame so I'm going to change it out. Doesn't it look like worms? I want to turn it into a sign that says Lisa's Sewing Studio or Yes I'm open, I don't know yet. Any Suggestions? Nice score for me at the Goodwill. I want to go back, they have so many great items, I think I may be addicted!
So that was part of my day yesterday besides working. I hope you enjoy looking at my newly renovated Loft area of my home. I know I love it and can't wait to share all the great wonderful projects I create!
