Studio catastrophe! (a big mess)

Believe it or not this is suppose to be my studio! This is my next project and I decide to share the "view" so it will make me start the clean up! Needs a lot of organization! We have a bed in this room, where is it?
I am so inspired by the magazine "Where women create". I need my table to start to create too!

and an other collection, amber glass

Yet, an other collection

The hobby of collecting includes seeking, locating, acquiring, organizing, cataloging, displaying

storing and maintaining whatever items are of interest to the individual collector.

When does a collection starts?

Are 100 items to many for a collection?Is it a illness?

Welcome to our new peaceful retreat.

When using a mirror always be careful of the objects that the mirror reflects!
Good lamps to be able to read in bed are a must.

A guest room needs to be comfortable. Check the coat rack from the 1880, it is made of cast iron and looks like faux-bamboo! Your guests will love to have a writing desk, it is used as a night stand too. Always provide extra soaps, toothbrush and information about the region, the trees, the plants...

Night stands can be anything you like and are much more interesting if they are eclectic.

Bed rejunevation!

From simple to beautiful with headboards and foot boards slipcovered! These are our children twin beds, good memories of story reading! They were in good condition and the matelasse add romance and clean lines. A good option would be to use vintage tin or wainscoting!

Easy fast projects!

Before After
I used the bottom of a coffee table and voilà a pretty new ottoman.

It is easy to strip paint using the right paint remover.

Guest room update

Wood floor! No more carpet!

Never use a varnish it always turns yellow! Use a primer to cover it, it works amazingly well!

Remember when you pick a color, the light that shines into your room will change the color! Look at the corner, same color!
