IN THE WORKS…

While holiday traveling, house guests, and multiple colds have definitely thrown me for a loop, I’ve been slowly pecking away at the chaos that is my studio. I’ve spent a huge chunk of my time organizing and brainstorming, but things are slowly – very slowly – coming together. Hey, I even managed to paint a piece or two!

Although, now that I have a vision in my head, I’m hoping things will start coming together much more quickly and I can give you guys a full update soon. In the meantime, here are a few of the pieces I’ve been working on…

Diamond Dresser

Piano Bench

Racer Stripe Dresser

Gossip Chair

Obviously the gossip chair in the picture above needs a bit more work – I have some amazing fabric being shipped from Korea as we speak that will push it over the top (in all the good ways)! I also have a fabulous tabletop that is waiting on a set of hairpin legs and a few more miscellaneous pieces that are just a bit too rough to share, but soon my pretties. SOON!

A PLACE TO CREATE

Other than the whole baby thing…the newest addition to my life is a small, yet glorious place to create. A space that is entirely my own, to escape, to work, to think, to simply BE. It’s a mess of a space at the moment, with barely a glimmer of natural light, and I do share it with various dilapidated furniture pieces and storage items, but it has potential. And did I mention that it’s mine?

Front

Inside Empty

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do with it, and more realistically, what my budget allows me to do with it. In fact, I can’t quite stop thinking about it! I do know that I need to break the space into showroom and work/storage space, but I still want the entirety to express something organized and comfortable. Mostly, however, I want it to be FUN, and since it’s lacking natural light, I want it to be BRIGHT. And I want to infuse as much of me as possible. Some inspiration that I’ve gathered so far…

Now, if only I could find the time to put it all into action! Working moms, how do you do it…?? (I think a series of interviews is in order!)
