Studio Tour

I am so excited to give you a tour of my studio!   The studio had become a "storage area" rather than a place for me to work on my creations.
The studio was originally a large garage.    H removed the roll door and installed three sets of French doors.   I wish there were before pictures, but it was done before I started blogging.   Several of you have asked how big the studio is and I made a guess and said about 500 sq feet.   Yesterday the roofer came out to measure for a new roof,  and the studio is 35' x 30' ....1050 sq feet!   I was so surprised that it is that large!

My sweet daughter and grand daughter  gave me these gorgeous hanging petunia baskets for my birthday!

 I was lucky enough to get the bid on this vintage metal baby bed a couple of weeks ago.....I just love it!    I have always wanted an old metal baby bed,  but had never found one for sale....and in the right price range!
It will make a perfect place to relax and do a little reading.   Aren't the springs unusual? 
The little white flower cart between the pink chairs is another one of my auction treasures....
A swag with colors that match the petunias completes the front of the studio.


                                            Here is a before photo of the front of the studio .....it looks pretty drab,  but it still had the "winter" look.
Come on in to the studio  and take a look around.....
 
 
 

 
Here are some before photos.     Look at that mess.....how did I ever let it get so bad!
 
Thank you so much for stopping by for my studio tour!
